Bunny Wreath

Posted by on Mar 17, 2013 in burlap, easter | 14 comments

I am helping a friend decorate her home for Easter.

(Have I ever told you how much I LOVE my job?!)

She saw my bunny wreath and wanted one for her front door.

I made this wreath last year as I was beginning this blog.

The tutorial left a little (lot) to be desired!

So, I decided to share a new tutorial for how to make it.

Cut about 1 inch around each form.

Poke the end of the wire through the burlap.

Hot glue the burlap around the wire form.

You will use this wire stem to secure the ears to the wreath.

You can wire this stem to the wreath.

Then, add hot glue to the burlap to secure them.

Paint the bunny ears pink.

I like to use a couple of shades of pink.

I hope my friend likes her new wreath!

Life to the full,

  1. I love it!!!

  2. Your bunny is so darned cute Melissa. I’m going to have to save that one for next Easter. Your tutorial is great, it looks pretty doable also. Love the ears most of all. Now I’ll have to find a wire hanger.
    I’ve got so many projects I’m still doing but most likely won’t get half of them done.
    I’ve got to get the “stuff” out of our kitchen so we can move in there. I’ve been making a vintage hanky curtain for our bathroom window. Always wanted to do something with the hankies so finally did. Making too many Easter projects but I have to have something to do, already restyled my shutter shelf twice. Happy week
