Hey there! I’m back with a fun spring project. 🙂 I know Easter is a good five weeks away, but our weather drastically improved along with the time change, so it’s feeling like spring! Knowing the Midwest, we’ll have snow again at some point…but I’m enjoying it for now.
I got this idea when I was browsing online recently. I can’t remember where I found it, but I found the cutest bunny wreath — and I knew I could replicate it for less. Turns out I spent a little more, but mine is double the size. I call that a win! And it’s just stinking adorable. Or adoyable as my niece would say.
I’ll list all of the items I used on this project at the bottom of the post, but here’s how it came together! I started with a foam wreath form from the craft store. Mine is 14 inches:
Then I found some soft yarn in white:
For this wreath you’ll want to make a bunch of yarn pom poms — I’ve never made them but have seen this DIY many times. The size will depend on what you use to wrap your yarn and how many times you do it. I used my hand at first — four fingers.
I quickly realized I needed something that was the same size all around. I grabbed my level and used that to wrap the yarn:
You could use anything — even a strip of cardboard. I wrapped the yarn 40 to 50 times for each pom. Then you cinch it in the middle with a smaller piece of yarn. To get the fluffy look, you cut the yarn as I showed above.
You’re left with a fluffy yarn ball. Usually you’d trim these down a bit so the pieces are even, but I didn’t worry about that yet:
I could have hot glued these on, but I knew that would be a mess, so I opted for these floral pins instead:
They worked like a charm! You’ll probably need to change your spacing as you go, so I highly recommend these instead of glue.
I don’t know how many poms I made, but it was two skeins worth. I thought it would take me MUCH longer to make them than it did. I wrapped them as I watched TV and it was easy work.
I needed some ears, so I searched for a pattern and found a bunny ear pattern here
. I cut it out, and then cut out the middle (pink) part of the ear. I used a stiffer felt for the white, or main part of the ears so they would have some structure:
And then I traced and cut out the pink part of the ears and hot glued those on:
You could free hand them as well, but the pattern is handy!
I attached the ears to the back of the wreath form with the floral pins, and then used a tack and some hot glue to create a hook for the door:
When I was done with the wreath I may have squealed like a little girl:
I mean…come on! It’s so FLUFFY!! (Name that movie.):
I ended up trimming some scraggly pieces of yard off before I hung it.
It took me about an hour to finish up the whole wreath and I just LOVE it. I made the family come out and check it out too. I may have also driven by our house a couple times already just to see it on the door:
It would also be cute if you did the ears in just white, and then added a pink or gray pom pom as a a bunny tail on the bottom of the wreath. Mine is the front view, but the back view would be fun too. 🙂
I spent about $17 but if you could grab your yarn for half off you’d spend more like $13. (I used a coupon for the wreath form.)
It’s it the cutest? I love it so. I wouldn’t recommend yarn for a door that gets exposed to the elements, but you could always bring it in if needed.
