It’s rare for me to actually execute a craft I’ve pinned on Pinterest but last Easter something got my creative juices flowing and I found myself at Michaels picking up what I needed to make an Easter Bunny wreath. Here’s the thing, I could of easily purchased this Easter bunny wreath from a number of Easy shops but many were asking upwards of $70 and I just couldn’t justify that cost. I was convinced I could make it myself for a fraction of a price – and I did!
What You Need for this Easter Bunny Wreath

- Wire Wreath Form – 8″ diameter (for the head)
- Wire Wreath Form – 12″ diameter (for the body)
- 3 packages Floral Paper Cloth Wire
- 1 roll of Wired Satin Ribbon in any spring color
- 3 or 4 50” long Spring Egg and Pip garland (you’ll need one for the ears and the rest for the body)
- Wire cutter tool
- Glue gun, optional
How to make an Easter Bunny Wreath:
- Fit garland to the front of each wire wreath round securing with floral wire.
- You’ll want to wrap the garland around the wire wreath so that it appears full.
- You can keep your wreaths”branchy” looking or tuck (and hot glue) all the little branches into the other secured pieces for a cleaner look.
- Wrap both wreaths with the garland. Be sure to reserve one garland for the bunny ears.
- Tightly secure the 8″ wreath to the 12″ wreath using floral wire.
- Use the remaining garland to shape into bunny ears. I removed the eggs from this garland to easily manipulate the branches. – Gather the garland at the bottom and secure with a rubber band or floral wire.
- Tightly secure the bunny ears to the 8″ wreath.
- Tie wire ribbon around neck into bow.
- Hang from wreath hanger.
The whole project cost me about $40. The biggest expense came from the garland but if you have time to shop prices, you can definitely find them deeply discounted. It took me about an hour total to complete this particular Easter Bunny wreath. Be warned: it can be heavy, so make sure all of your attachments are secure
