Welcome the Easter Bunny and friends to your home this spring with an Easter Bunny wreath. Cover it with your favorite cut flowers or add fresh picked flowers from your backyard for a wild touch.
To create your bunny wreath you will need two round wreaths and two oval wreaths. You can buy them premade— grapevine wreaths work great—or make your own from fresh cut vines. You'll also need cut flowers and a little bit of floral wire.
Create Your Own Wreath
If you're going to make your own wreaths begin with a single length of vine twisted into a circle. Shape it into an oval for the ears or leave in a circle for the body. You'll need two similar sized circles for the body and two similar sized ovals for the ears.
Build Up Your Wreath
Twist more lengths of vines, one at a time, around the first circle you created. Wrap them gently around the previous vine, alternating the direction that you wrap so the vines overlap. Continue until you have a fairly sturdy circle.
Finish your wreath by quickly adding body and thickness to it. Wrap 4 lengths of vine at a time around the base you've already established. Continue until your wreath is the thickness you'd like. If they are floppy, lay your wreaths out in the sun to dry and stiffen.
Create Your Bunny
Create your Easter Bunny by placing the two circle wreaths together and adding the oval wreaths to the top of one circle to make ears. Use wire to attach the wreaths to one another. Be sure to push the wire deep into the wreaths. If you only attach the outer edges your wreaths may not be able to carry the weight.
Begin weaving decorations into your wreath. We used palm nuts to add color and texture and because they look like tiny easter eggs. You can also add kumquats, china berries or any other round fruits or berries you'd like.
Finish your wreath by weaving flowers in between the vines. We gave our bunny a fluffy white tail by using a bunch of white flowers near the base of the bottom wreath. Keep your flowers fresh by spritzing with water once a day. When your flowers fade simply add fresh ones.
