Easter Bunny in the Grass Spring Wreath for our Easter Mantel {Get Your DIY On!!}

Follow on Bloglovin

I didn’t make it until most of the mantel was already done.  I had a big blank space that I wasn’t quite sure what to do with.  But after some pinterest-inspiration  I ended up creating this bad boy.

To make this I used:

Easter Bunny in the Grass Wreath materials at The Happy Housie

- 4″ natural burlap ribbon with frayed edges (from BB Crafts)
2″ green and white wired chevron ribbon 
Pink Ric Rac ribbon 
– Green eyelash yarn (from The Dollar Tree)
– Mini Foam Easter Eggs (from Dollarama)
– Small white ceramic bunny (from The Dollar Tree)
– Grapevine wreath (not pictured)
– Glue gun and glue
– Scissors

Start by wrapping the wreath form in the natural burlap ribbon. I used a grapevine wreath form and it turned out a little lumpy… next time around I would probably go with a smooth foam form instead.  Live and learn.

Once the whole form was wrapped in the burlap ribbon I added some pink ric rac to the top 2/3 of the wreath.  I also added a double bow to the top of the wreath using the green and white chevron ribbon.  (This ribbon is so pretty! I ordered it in several shades and can’t wait to make another wreath with it).

Then I wrapped the bottom 1/3 of the wreath in the green eyelash yarn.

When the whole she-bang was wrapped I simply hot glued the bunny and foam Easter eggs to the grassy area. Done!
