Three Item Thursday!

I am SUPER excited to participate in the very first Three Item Thursday which is being hosted by two of my favorite bloggy BFF's..

Photobucket
This week's three items are:  Twine, Paint Chips and Empty Cereal Boxes...


And here is my project... drum roll please!
A Bunny and Egg Easter Garland and of course a quickie tutorial so all you three item fans can make one too!
I already told you the ingredients!  So now that you have them cut out a template for a bunny from your cereal boxes.  Then cut ears, tail, nose and a big heart for the bunny out of your paint chips.  Put it all together and tie a twine bow around its neck or ear.  Voila!
Then cut out eggs to hang between the bunnies.  Then hang on the twine line for a garland!

Now I know I CHEATED.. because I used clothespins but I had every intention of using a hole punch to attach them to the twine.. however, I lost it.  Desperate times call for desperate measures!
And here is one more shot with my middle guy because he HAD to get in on the fun!

Hope you HOP on over and share your three item projects!
I am also sharing with
