Bunny Wreath

Have I ever told you that I have a large bunny addiction collection.

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.

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.

Easy Blue Bunny Wreath

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.

    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!
