I have an easy to make Farmhouse Bunny Wreath to share with you today. It’s fun to make and will add a little whimsy to your door this Spring.
You’ll need a styrofoam wreath (mine is 14-inches), some chunky orange yarn (I used I Love This Chunky yarn in Orange Spice), an unfinished wood bunny, small buffalo plaid fabric for the bunny, some ribbon for the bow, and a white pom pom for the tail. You may also want some white paint to paint the back and sides of the bunny. I found all my supplies at my local craft store.
First decide which side of the bunny you want to be the front. I decided to have the droopy ear facing out from the wreath. Trace the bunny on the back side of the fabric and cut it out.
I painted the edges and back of the bunny with white paint. This step is optional, but I like the finished look it gives the project. After the paint is dry, brush a thin layer of Mod Podge on the front of the bunny and attach the fabric, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Set aside and let dry. Then hot glue a pom pom to the bunny and tie a ribbon bow around his neck.
Now it’s time to start wrapping the wreath. I attached the yarn to the wreath with a couple of straight pins and then started wrapping the yarn – and wrapping and wrapping. 🙂 You’ll want to pull it taut, but be careful not to stretch it too much, and keep it close together. Continue until you cover the entire wreath and secure the end with a couple more straight pins.
Attach the bunny to the wreath with hot glue. Make a bow using your favorite ribbon and attach to the wreath with hot glue. I tied some twine around the wreath behind the bunny to use as a hanger.
I really like the way this Farmhouse Bunny Wreath turned out – I hope you like it, too!
