Spring is in the air and with the changing seasons, comes all of the memorable Easter traditions and sweet decorations. We’re very happy to share this quick and simple Easter wreath idea with you.
Growing up in our house, Easter was (and still is) a big deal. Even bigger than Christmas in fact! And these days, we love all of the Easter decor: the little chickies, the eggs in all the beautiful Spring colours and the adorable bunny decorations. Yet somehow, Easter seems to come around so quickly that I never find myself fully prepared. So with just a few weeks to go, I’ve decided to put aside a wee little bit of time to create a joyful and lighthearted Easter bunny wreath.
I reused the mulberry vine wreath we made several years ago to quickly assemble this simple Easter wreath. And the best thing is that we can continue to reuse the vine wreath throughout the year since the bunny add-ons are all easily removable. And as for the fabric, we recently used this same scrap denim fabric to make a DIY heart garland for Valentine’s Day. It’s true, a little bit of scrap fabric goes a long way!

- Scrap woven fabric, in a medium weight (we used leftover denim fabric)
- Fabric scissors
- Flexible Floral Wire, 12 gauge
- Wire Cutter
- Glue gun with clear hot glue sticks
- Wreath (grapevine wreath, moss wreath, DIY mulberry vine wreath)
- Burlap ribbon, 3” wide (tied into a large bow with flower wire at the center for attaching to wreath)
Instructions for making this DIY Easter Wreath:
Using fabric scissors, cut out x4 bunny ears (2 pairs) out of the denim or other woven fabric. The bunny ears measure 14” long by 4.5” wide. You can adjust this depending on the size of your wreath.
Determine the length of the wire needed. Using wire cutters, we cut the wire at approx. 34” long (twice the length of the ears plus extra 6” to work with).
Fold the wire loosely in half. Apply glue to the wrong side of one bunny ear and press wire in place. Be careful not to burn yourself, the glue can be very hot! Work quickly and in small sections until the wire is secured in place.
Place the other side of the bunny ear (wrong side to wrong side) over top, covering the glued wire. Apply hot glue around the perimeter of the bunny ear to hold together.
Trim away any excess fabric along the outer edges.
Repeat these steps for the other bunny ear.
Attach bunny ears to the tops of your wreath and add a decorative bow to the bottom of your wreath.
Hoppy Easter! How do you like to prepare for Easter?
