To get started you’ll need a few basic supplies.

  • 6 “Special Moments” photo frames (Dollar Tree)
  • 3 packs mini carrots (Dollar Tree)
  • jute
  • hot glue
  • scissors/ paper trimmer
  • FREE Easter art download (available below)

The plan for DIY Easter decoration

Walking through the Dollar Tree, I was inspired by these small photo frames and mini carrots. Immediately I envisioned these items made into a darling bunting for my mantel.

To begin I laid the supplies out on my table to get a rough idea of how I’d like to display each item.

Then I cut a piece of jute to the length of the bunting with about an extra 12″ to spare on both ends.

Attach jute to photo frames

Next, fold the jute in half to determine where the middle is.

Then place the jute under the photo frame stand and secure into place with hot glue. Hold into place for a minute until the glue has cooled down.

Add mini carrots

Before adding the mini carrots to the bunting, I secured each set of carrots together with hot glue.

Then secure each set of carrots to the jute with hot glue in-between each photo frame. Add an additional carrot set to both ends of the bunting.

To suit your preference, this download is available for “Easter” and “Spring”. Easily print at home or send to your local copy store.

Cut each letter to size using scissors or a paper trimmer. Each letter is cut to  approximately 3.3″ high x 2.5″ wide.

Clip each letter into place on each photo frame.

How to hang on mantle

NOTE: Use command hooks to display your DIY Easter decoration. This is a great alternative to putting a nail in the mantel. They’re easy to use, and don’t leave any sticky residue once removed.

To hang on the mantle, tie a knot in the jute near the edge on each side.

Then thread each command hook through the knot.

Finally place your DIY jute tassel onto the hook.

(If you missed how EASY it is to make your own jute tassel, see our tutorial here.)

      Isn’t it so fun?! Run grab your supplies before they’re gone. Our Dollar Store is already picked over 🤣 It’s crazy how early you have to jump on these things to find the best supplies to work with. Have fun making your own, and thanks for your sweet comment.

    Hello. Love the project!
    It looks like your letters are printed larger than the way mine printed, Is there a trick to getting them to print like yours. Thank you.

    1. Stephanie Hofer

      It could just be the advanced printing options if you’re trying to print at home. (fit to page, full page, narrow margins etc.)
      I had mine printed at a copy center. Hope that helps. I also didn’t cut them to specific measurements. I really just trimmed around each letter. They’re not all the same size.
