Have I ever told you that I have a large bunny
I love bunnies. Any bunnies. Real, ceramic, stuffed, even plastic. I’m not sure if it’s the fluff, their eyes, the big ears, or their innocence. I just like them.
While at the dollar store recently, I came across this blue stuffed bunny. He was very plain (no tie, or carrot), but his eyes spoke to me.
Go ahead…look into his eyes.
See? I told you.
So, I grabbed 6 of them thinking they would be perfect for my new gig.
***New Gig Announcement: I am one of 11 bloggers chosen for the “FloraCraft Make it: Fun Team”! What this means is, I will be posting 1 post per month for the next 6 months using FloraCraft® products. I am compensated for these reviews, however all opinions and views are my own. So, be sure to check back each month to see what I make! I am so thrilled to be a part of this wonderful team and to be able to bring you something new and creative each month using FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam products.
Originally, I planned on using all 6 of the blue bunnies to make a wreath. After I began working on it, my gut told me that I was using too many bunnies. Bunny overload for sure. To be totally honest, even my husband thought it was too many bunnies.
It was then that I decided to focus on just 1 blue bunny, and make him as cute as I could with what I have around the house.
I remembered I had orange ribbon upstairs, and I also remembered my teen girls had a toy carrot in their old play food. So, I dressed him up with a spiffy orange and white polka dot bow tie, and the toy carrot came alive after I stuck some Spanish moss into it by poking a hole.
What a cutie.
Here’s how to make this Bunny Wreath & what supplies you will need:
1. You will need 1 FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam wreath. I used the 12 inch size. You can find these at Jo-Ann Stores and WalMart. The wreath sheds a little, but it is easy to sweep up with a damp cloth or broom.
2. You will also need 1 roll of Design it:® Simple Style® 21” Decorative Mesh – in blue ombre. This also comes in orange and can be found at Michael’s or Walmart. I secured the beginning just by holding it and wrapping the mesh around that part first. Then, I continued around the entire wreath just wrapping it around by over lapping until I was happy with it. The blue ombre colors really made this part easy. It looked good no matter what I did. I secured it at the end with a stick pin.
3. Then I hung it on a large nail in my kitchen (that’s where I work usually) and I tied the orange ribbon on the top and cut off the excess on a diagonal. With it hanging securely, I could now work on the bunny.
4. For the bunny, I tied the orange ribbon around his neck and made a bow. I then cut off all of the excess so it looked like a bow tie. Bow ties are really in right now, so I thought it was a good call.
5. As mentioned above, the orange carrot is from my daughter’s play food and all I had to do was poke a hole in the top and force some Spanish moss into it. I love how it adds a natural element. You could also use green Easter basket grass for this.
6. Lastly, I glued the bunny onto the wreath, and I also glued the carrot onto the bunny and the wreath.
I think it turned out so darling.

Whoa. Be careful because those bunnies could keep multiplying if you don’t separate them!! 😉
Such a cute wreath, Julie!!
I love how your wreath turned out! Such a cute little bunny, too! 🙂
Aww, such a sweet pile of bunnies (and I agree with Claire — better keep a close eye on those little cuties!). Your wreath is adorable, and yes, those shiny black eyes are speaking to me, too. Thank you, Julie!
That is such a cute little wreath – makes me smile just to look at that cute little bunny in a sky blue setting holding his carrot. Love it. Simple, but so adorable!
Thank you, Barbara!! I love his matching tie ♥️
