If you are new to my blog, welcome! My name is Kim and I’m a native Michigander. I love all things home decor, a pretty table, DIY, sewing, a hot cup of tea and spending time with my precious family! I also make blankets for a cause hoping to help find a cure for brain tumors. You can read more about me here.

The Story Behind The Wreath
Believe it or not, I’m not making the bunny wreath for myself.
I’m making it for my mother. She lives in the cutest senior living facility and decorating your apartment door is quite the thing.
Well, quite the BIG thing!
Every so often, I make her a wreath or sometimes a big fancy bow to put on an existing wreath she has.
The bigger the bow…the better!
At least that’s what she tells me.
Bunny Wreath Supplies
You will need:
2 colors of green yarn
Pom pom makers
One burlap wreath
Two sheets of self-adhesive white felt
Small plastic Easter eggs
Scissors & Hot Glue
How To Make The Bunny Wreath
1) The pom poms were the first thing I made. I invested in the pom pom makers when I made and shared An Easy Valentine’s Day Pom Pom Wreath. Definitely worth the small investment and I know I will use them again. First, I made one white pom pom for the bunny’s tail. Then I made several sizes of the green pom poms.
Make it your own and see what you like best!
2) To make the bunny, I used a thin piece of cardboard. Once I penciled the size I wanted, I cut it out and used it as my template. Self adhesive felt makes the job a little easier. If you can find it, I suggest getting that. Peeling the back of the felt off, I laid the bunny on it and then cut it out. I then repeated with the other piece of felt.
Ta da! The cutest white bunny.
3) I hot glued the bunny, pom poms and small Easter eggs onto the wreath. As far as the wreath goes, you can use a prefab burlap wreath or buy a straw wreath and cover it with burlap.
4) Next, I added the twine to the right side of the wreath. I created the little flags from scraps of material I already had; cutting the pieces into 4 inch by 1 inch strips.
After everything was cut, I folded each strip in half and cut a triangle out of the bottom. Once complete, I opened and added a dab of hot glue into the fold and then attached to the piece of twine.
The Last Step
5) Here it is, the last step. The finishing touches. A little bow and that big bow my mother requested!
Pink and green ribbon was my choice for this project. However, you can use any color you like or have on hand. I made a small pink bow for the bunny’s ear and used the hot glue to adhere it.
I love making bows. My mother taught me years ago so it only felt right making that big bow for her. I actually don’t know if it is big enough by my mother’s standards, but it will have to do.
I’m so excited to see how well the bunny wreath is received once she hangs it on her door!
Maybe she’ll win a prize!
Well, there you have it! That’s all there is to it.
Pretty simple, right?
I hope I have inspired you to make this easy bunny wreath.
The best part, you still have plenty of time to make one for yourself!
Next up on the Bunny Hop is my friend Regina, from Saved from Salvage. She is going to show you how to make a silhouette bunny on a vintage slate shingle. How fun!

Kim, how lucky your mom is and how sweet you are! I love making pom~poms and yours are precious. I love how you made the bunny. I think my favorite part is the cute little flag banner. I hope your mom wins the prize.
I love the little flag banner, too! I gave her the wreath Friday and she was thrilled! Thanks, Carol!
Kim – Adorable wreath. I’ve been in senior housing and know exactly what you mean about the importance of the door or sometimes a shelf outside the door to decorate. I’m sure she loved it. I’ve never used self adhesive felt (need) and the little banner is the cutest. Nice to hop with you. Happy Spring.
Thank you, Regina! You must try the self adhesive felt. It is a game changer for me! Happiest spring!!
Leslie Watkins says
What a beautiful reason to make a wreath. Thank you for that sweet inspiration. She will be thrilled to have this one AND be able to brag that her wonderful daughter created it for her. What a blessing for you both.
You are so kind, Leslie. Thank you! I have to tell you that she did love it! xo
Kim! I love your wreath!! It’s so cute! But my favorite part is that you made it for your Mom!! ❤ XoXo

Loving the green for this wreath and the bunny
I’m glad you like it! It was a fun project.
Seriously the cutest little bunny wreath I’ve seen! Pinning!
That is just the sweetest…and the sweetest reason to make a wreath. We used to do the same for my mom’s door. I think it cheered her and her roommate up to have some pretty seasonal decor.
I think so too, Kim! A little ray of sunshine on the door goes a long way.
