Quick and Easy Bunny Easter Wreath

I don’t know about you but I don’t do a lot of decorating for Easter, but I do like to make a new wreath for every holiday.

This is a new take on last year’s wreath… a bunny Easter wreath.

Last week in my Finds of the Week I showed you these little wooden hand painted bunnies that I found for 25 cents.

Just in time for an Easter project.

I love to use thrifted scarves in projects. I never pay more than $1 for a scarf, and you really do get a lot of bang for a buck.

This scarf, with all its fun colours, just says Easter and Spring to me.

I wrapped the scarf around the wreath. Easy peasy.

I just secured the ends together with two safety pins.

I didn’t want to use any glue so I tied the baby bunnies on to the wreath using pink embroidery floss. The floss isn’t visible around the wreath because of the scarf. It just kinda blended right in.

To finish it off nicely I simply tied a bow around each bunny’s neck.

Here are the sweet baby bunnies.

It looked unfinished to me so…

I found Papa bunny and Mama bunny from last year’s wreath and added them. They’re both held in place with fishing line.

Here they were last year… all alone.

And here they are this year with all their bunny babies.

One big happy family! 🙂

Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.

  1. Your baby bunnies are the cutest, and all for twenty-five cents–amazing. I need a fuzzy scarf or two to make my own wreaths, something to hunt for…

    1. Thanks Diana! I love to repurpose scarves. They can be used in so many ways.

  2. I knew you’d do something great with those bunnies!! This is just so sweet! I’m agree with Diana, I’m going to be on the lookout for fuzzy scarves! I’ve seen them, but I can guarantee they are a bit more than a dollar down here!! Dona

    1. Thanks so much Dona! Fuzzy scarves are pretty plentiful at the thrift stores around here. Until recently I had a large collection. I pared it down when I was purging and saved just my faves. They’re fun to craft with.

    1. Thanks Gail! If it was a couple of months ago I probably wouldn’t have been able to find Papa and Mama bunny. It’s so great to be organized again. 🙂

  3. Too cute! I knew you’d make something sweet with those baby bunnies! The scarf was perfect. Wish I could get some for that price. Smart not to glue them, now you can use them for something else next year! xo Kathleen

    1. Thanks Kathleen! I like to make projects that can be easily taken apart so I’m not stuck with what I made the previous year. I get bored… so I like to be able to change things.

    1. Thanks Cecilia! This type of scarf is so great for quick and easy wreath making. I love them and always keep my eyes open for them at the thrift stores.

  4. I wondered how you would use those adorable little bunnies. The wreath is perfection and I’m glad you tied the bunnies they are just too cute to glue!

    1. Thanks Sharon! I agree, they are too cute to glue. Next year I hope to use them another way… and the scarf too.

  5. I was wondering what you were going to do with those sweet little bunnies! The wreath is adorable! I think that scarf is perfect for a wreath…not so much to wear! 🙂

    1. Thanks AnnMarie! I totally agree with you. The scarf is way too cutesy to wear, unless you’re 5, which I do feel like sometimes… but not enough to wear this scarf. lol. But is is pretty cute for a wreath.

  6. What an adorable wreath Tuula! I knew you would do something clever with your bunny family. Cheers.

  7. Love those wooden bunnies, what a find so cute! I wonder if it would be possible to make some. Love the wreath too.

    1. You probably could Claire, but I love that I found them already made, and I’m pretty sure they’re vintage too. Even better.

  8. It was so cute last year, but it’s even cuter now with all the little babies. So clever to tie them on with embroidery floss. Thank for coming by to share at Talk of the Town.

    1. Thanks so much Betsy! It’s always great fun joining the party!

  9. The Queen of Pink strikes again!
    Ahem, maybe you’d better keep the mama and daddy bunnies separated.
    That’s a lot of babies. 😉

    1. lol. I think they better hibernate in separate closets next winter. 🙂

  10. Totally adorable! And at a great price! What a fun touch to add chicken wire. Have a great weekend and thanks for hosting!

    1. Thanks Gina! It was a fun and easy project.

  11. That wreathe is just “cunnning” *That’s Maine-speak for really cute! I covet those little bunnies. I knit funky scarves all the time and it has never occurred to use one of my own for a wreathe! What was I not thinking? Several months ago, I found 2 bags of right-colored tag GW yarn; got home and counted 33 skeins of yarn for $6. It’s 4.29 a skein at AC Moore–fun fur types. I love the boa behind the chicken wire, too! I like how you keep it simple so that you can re-upcycle easily–like the embroidery floss bows.

      Thanks Kathy! Scarves makes awesome wreaths because they come is so many colour and styles. They are one of my favourite things to repurpose. Plus they make it so easy to change things up. That yarn was a great deal!

  12. What a great find! Such a cute wreath. Thank you so very much for linking to the Spring and Easter Joys party. Have a very Happy Easter!
