Remember my 15-minute Easter dinner table from last week? The Easter bunny tails on each plate were my favorite part! I made two versions and promised to show you how to make the more time consuming version. But I promise: this is really easy. Pop on some silly TV and get folding!

How to Make Easter Bunny Tails by Double the Fun Parties


Strips of 12″ scrapbooking paper, cut 1.5″ wide

Jumbo cotton balls

Hot glue gun or Aleene’s Thick Tacky Glue


1 – Fold your paper strips into accordion folds. A deeper fold creates a deeper final pinwheel.

DSC_0024Press and crease firmly with each fold.

DSC_00282 –  You will need two 12″ strips to make one pinwheel.

DSC_00473 – Apply glue to the end fold on one of the strips. Press the end of the second strip to the glue-y end.

DSC_0057DSC_00534 – Glue the other ends in the same way and gently hold together while the glue sets.

DSC_00615 – Press the circle down flat. Squeeze the circle together to create a small center hole. Fill the hole with hot glue and press the center hole completely closed until the glue sets.

DSC_00676 – Add another dot of hot glue to the center of the circle and press the cotton ball to the center.

DSC_0071DSC_0078And that’s it. Now you can make these pinwheel, and add anything you like to the center for any party. I used cotton balls, so I have bunny tails. You could add cupcake circles from your printables, buttons, silk flowers — anything you can dream up!Easter Table in 15 minutes for $1.59 0137Easter Table in 15 minutes for $1.59 0143Easter Table in 15 minutes for $1.59 0150
