MOSS BUNNY EASTER WREATH
My sweet daughter and son-in-law just purchased their first house (so I wanted to surprise them with a cute Easter wreath for their front porch). I had moss bunnies on my mind, because what screams Easter more than Jesus and a moss bunny??? 🤗 I was able to make both a cute Spring wreath with this bunny, and a fun mantle decoration with him. He's pretty versatile!
How to Make This Easter Wreath:
- wooden craft bunny (I got mine at Hobby Lobby in the Easter section)
- oval grapevine wreath
- tacky glue
- moss mat
- variety of ribbon (I love this polka dot one from Hobby Lobby)
- 2 inch chipboard letters (or wooden letters would work as well)
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Warning! This is a bit messy so you might want to work outside. 🙂
First, trace your bunny onto the moss mat (be sure to trace your bunny backwards so it will face the direction you prefer when you glue it on). Now, carefully cut the bunny out trying to cut a little outside the tracing so it will be a bit bigger than the wooden piece.
Next, cover your wooden bunny with glue and gently press the moss cutout onto the wood. I used spray adhesive, but you could use regular tacky craft glue or hot glue as well.
You could use bagged moss here, and if you do I would definitely take this outside. 🤗
Lastly, make a cute bow to make him really stand out. To make a super easy bow, I love to use this technique from Brooke over at Re-fabbed. You can hot glue the bow right onto the moss.
Adding a bow really gives this cutie some character. 🐰
I had some chipboard letters on hand along with some chalk paint. So those were easy to make quickly and hot glue to the wreath. I used hot glue to adhere the bunny to the wreath as well. 🙂
This is the Easter wreath that is sitting on my daughter's front porch now!
…and this fella is sittin' on my mantle!
You might remember this Christmas Paper Garland I shared back in December. I was so sad to pack it away after Christmas, so I decided to bring it back out and I'm so glad I did. It's really perfect for Spring!
It was just the touch my mantel needed to complete my sort of hodge podge, whimsical Easter theme I seem to have going this year! 🙂
