This easy, affordable DIY Easter bunny wreath is the perfect little project to make to welcome spring to your front porch!
This DIY Easter bunny wreath was one of those great projects that came together really inexpensively for me because I happened to have some of the materials in the house already and also because of craft store coupons. Hooray for those! 🙂 I’ve always thought these simple bunny wreaths, but I just never got around to making them because they seemed like they had a lot of different (possibly expensive) components to them, and it seems silly to spend big money on a wreath that will only be up for a few weeks at most. I originally was going to try to see if I could somehow doctor up some dollar store bunny ears for that part of this project, but then I realized that I already had something in my craft supply stash that would work much better and would be much simpler too.
I’m joining my friends from the Thrifty Style Team again today for this post, so be sure to check out all the other clever thrifty decorating ideas when you get to the end of the this post!
Materials Needed to Make the DIY Easter Bunny Wreath
To make a wreath like this one you’ll need:
- One 18″ grapevine wreath form (I seem to always have extras of these hanging around the house, so that was handy.)
- One 12″ grapevine wreath form
- One oversized furry pipe cleaner in the color of your choice
- Wire for attaching the wreath forms together
- Florals and embellishments
I probably would have chosen a white furry pipe cleaner to use for the bunny ears just by default, because most of these fun bunny wreaths that I see tend to be white, but I happened to have some of the brown leftover from making a lion’s tail for Jack for his end-of-the-season skating show costume and I actually think the little brown bunny ears are extra cute. They’re the color of the real bunnies that we have running around our yard in the spring, so that’s perfect. 🙂
I bought two little inexpensive floral bunches from Michael’s when they were having a “buy one, get one free” sale and I picked up the carrots then too. Between the sale, my 40% off coupon, and the things that I already had that I was able to re-use, this new Easter wreath cost me very little.
Assembling the DIY Easter Bunny Wreath
Well, this part of the process just couldn’t be easier. Once you’ve assembled all of your materials from things you find around the house and things you get on sale, the wreath pretty much makes itself!
I first used some pipe cleaners to attach the small wreath to the big wreath. I would probably normally recommend floral wire for this but we just have an abundance of pipe cleaners right now, so I used those. 🙂
I attached the ears with a bit of hot glue and some more pipe cleaners to make sure they were extra secure, then I hot glued the tail in place as well.
The final step was to attach the flowers and the carrots. I had plans to disassemble the little bunches, but I found that wasn’t really necessary. I just stuck them into the wreath where I thought they looked good and called it a day.
The Finished DIY Easter Bunny Wreath
I love that this wreath is so large in scale because it really makes and impact even though it’s relatively inexpensive to put together. I think this is the perfect thing to hang on your door if you’re planning to have friends and family over for Easter dinner this year.
