Decorating the house for holidays is so much fun. Bring a little bit of the holiday spirit to the rooms…or even the outside…of the house puts us all in the mood to celebrate.
This year, I created this Rustic Easter Wreath to hang on our front door. The cute little bunny and pretty spring flowers and eggs welcome us into our home with such cheer that it feels like Springtime…even when the weather feels more like winter.
Even if you aren’t much of a crafter, you can still make this wreath! It took me only minutes to put together, using a few supplies from the local craft store. The hardest part was just gluing everything into place 🙂
To begin, you’ll want to gather your supplies: a wreath, various greenery/silk flowers/moss, and some Easter-themed decorations, as well as a hot glue gun or craft glue.
This little Easter bunny that I found at Michael’s is so adorable! I just love the little carrot he carries on his back!
When I saw this egg-shaped grapevine wreath in the store, I knew it would be perfect for making an Easter wreath. It has almost a pocket on the front, into which I tucked some Spanish moss for my bunny to rest on.
I chose some pretty pink flowers in the floral section that had a couple of blooms per stem. Because they were so long, I just cut the flowers off the stem so that I could glue them onto the wreath.
The ivy that I chose to use had some nice, long trailers that I wrapped over the top of the wreath. I glued the pink flowers in among the ivy, to make it look like the bunny was tucked away in an arbor of the woods 🙂
After putting all the greenery into place, I glued the bunny into his spot with plenty of hot glue. I thought there could be a chance that he wouldn’t stay upright, but luckily, he stayed right in place.
Lastly, I tucked a few small Easter eggs that I removed from a larger egg “branch”, and glued them into place around the bunny, and finished the look with a bow made from raffia. A burlap bow would also look pretty there too!
After all was said and done, this pretty wreath only cost just over $20 and about 20 minutes of my day!
We have him hanging on our front door, bringing all the cheerfulness of Spring and Easter to us as we enter. 🙂
I hope you’ll try making a rustic Easter wreath of your own to brighten up your home this Easter season!
