If you’re like me, you decorate for every single holiday there is. I love it when my house looks festive and I tend to go all out for the big holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter). I have a big collection of decorations, but every now and then I put on my crafty pants and make some new ones. This Easter Bunny Wreath is really easy to make and I am sure it will be a very welcome addition to your Easter decor.
Here’s what you need to make your Easter Bunny Wreath:
- Wreath form
- Pink/White crafting tulle
- Faux white carnation
- Pair googly eyes
- Pink, white, peach felt
- Hot glue, glue gun
- Ribbon or yarn/string
- Jelly bean scrapbook paper
Here’s what you do:
1. Begin by wrapping the white crafting tulle around the wreath so it is completely covered. Pull tightly as you go, slightly overlapping as you do. Glue the end down to keep the tulle in place.
2. Twist or fold the pink craft tulle into a thinner size. Add a dab of glue to the end, press it to the inside of the wreath and start wrapping. You will space out the wrapping as you go, so it serves more of an accent purpose than to completely cover. Secure the end with glue.
3. Create a mini bunting banner with the scrapbook paper and yarn/string. Cut out several triangles and glue them to the string. Drape it across the top of the wreath, securing it in place by gluing each end to the back of the wreath form.
4. Create the bunny by gluing on a pair of eyes and a peach felt nose to the carnation. Snip out two white ovals for ears, and fill them in with two smaller pink ovals. Glue them to the carnation, tucking them behind the bloom to look like ears.
Your Easter bunny wreath is now ready to be enjoyed. Hang with a piece of ribbon or just place it on a wreath hook.
I was really happy with the way it came out. It’s bright, colorful and makes the perfect addition to my Easter decor!
So tell me, do you ever make your own holiday decorations?
