My neighbors may think I’m weird, but I love changing the wreath on our front door for every “holiday.” I also like to decorate the front living room based on the season but that will be for another post. Today I will be sharing with you how I made our Bunny Easter Wreath. I will also be sharing with you a few other DIY’s from fellow #mommybloggers to get you in the spirit and spark that DIY bug up.
- 2 Metal Wreath Rings (14inch)
- Burlap Ribbon
- Floral Wire
- Various Eggs/Decorations
The majority of the materials used for the Bunny Easter Wreath were purchased from The Dollar Tree. You can check out other Dollar Tree DIY’s, including a shelf here.
I am going to be completely honest and say that I tried different ways to wrap the burlap ribbon around the rings and I failed every time. I watched YouTube videos but I gave up. (Someone please teach me!) As a last resort, I decided to just wrap the ribbon around the two rings as you can see down below. I wanted the top ring to be somewhat smaller than the bottom, which would be the bunny’s body. Since my dollar tree only had one size of the rings I made one smaller by taking the outside metal ring off. It was fairly easy to do this and required just a little bit of strength.
After both rings were completely wrapped in burlap I began to try to shape the ears. I thought the floral wire was going to be sturdier than it was, so next time I may use cardboard instead. Once the ears were shaped to something I was comfortable with I used my glue gun to the remaining burlap ribbon around them.
Finally, I began to decorate with various eggs. Initially I planned to do eggs all around the rings but I didn’t want it to look too cluttered. I ended up using only the chalkboard eggs that already came painted and the small Styrofoam ones.
The Final Result
I love the Bunny Easter Wreath! For me its “subtle” yet still out there. I still have a dozen white eggs left over so I may paint them and add them to the wreath or use them for other decorations around the house. Any suggestions?
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy DIY. Send me your pictures if you try it. Now I am sharing with you a few Spring DIYs I absolutely love. Check them out and try some of them. I hope you enjoy!
