I love switching out my door wreaths for seasons and holidays. This Easter bunny wreath is absolutely precious and super easy to make. Not only is it Easter themed, but it appeals to my love of all things rustic. The added burlap wrap gives it a farmhouse appeal that is popular right now, but also a personal favorite. Grab your crafting supplies and make this great wreath to add to your decor.
Easter Bunny Wreath
Any craft that is simple but still turns out adorable is going to be a hit for me. I especially like ones that are pretty, but easy enough for me to make with the kids. This one is definitely all of the above. You only need a few supplies, and since it is supposed to be rustic and cute, there is no perfect template required. You can easily make this your own with a few changes.
I am also really in love with the idea of adding this cute pastel rainbow rag wreath or this bunny-shaped Easter wreath to my decor. Both are so pretty and fit well with this more rustic style. Of course, there are tons more ideas on this list of creative Easter wreaths. So many places to get inspiration.
What is the Best Wreath Form to Use?
For this, I chose a styrofoam wreath form. I found them at my local Dollar Tree for only $1 each, so keep them on hand all the time. If you prefer, you can use wire or rustic twig wreath for this, but you will want to add more fabric to fill in the gaps. I do, however, really like the idea of using a rustic twig wreath and skip the burlap. Use whatever you prefer, and have fun with making this bunny into a fun wreath for Easter.
I love making wreaths that are inexpensive. In fact, I made this adorable DIY Easter wreath from sticky notes a few years ago which is still one of my favorites. You can truly get creative and use almost anything to decorate with, and that proves it!
Can I Wrap This with Fabric Instead?
If you have some pretty springtime pattern or solid pastel-colored fabric on hand, feel free to use it instead of the burlap ribbon. In fact, you could also use any other color ribbon you wanted. Burlap adds to the rustic feel of the wreath, but it isn't necessary for making this cute.
I love the idea of using some patterned Easter egg fabric, or a nice pink or purple ribbon instead of the burlap. Either option would look especially nice with the rustic rope or jute you wrap around the top to hang the wreath. You could even make them in a few different colors to go on every door of your house. Get creative with them, and add embellishments like tiny eggs, little birds, ladybugs, and flowers around the wreath. There are just no limits to how you can personalize this wreath.
If you want another simple and rustic idea, check out this beautiful floral wreath. So simple but truly gorgeous. For those who want a little more pop of color, you can use this printable template to make a paper flower wreath or this other folded paper wreath. So many great ideas that really fit into Easter decor.

How to Make a Rustic Easter Bunny Wreath
Start by wrapping your foam wreath with burlap ribbon starting by gluing one end in place, then wrapping and gluing as you move around the wreath.
Keep the ribbon loosely overlapping but covering all of the white foam.
Once the burlap ribbon is in place, you will use the rustic rope to wrap around where the burlap is glued in place. Wrap 5-6 times and glue in place with a loop tied or glued at the top for hanging.
Now, you will cut out of the white and pink paper, 2 white ears, 2 slightly smaller pink ears, 1 pink circle nose, 2 white top feet, 2 larger white bottom feet, and 2 small pink circles to go on the white feet.
Assemble the ears and feet with pink pieces glued onto white as needed.
Now, you will add the googly eyes and nose to the styrofoam ball.
Glue the ears in place on the styrofoam ball.
Draw on the smile and whiskers with a black marker.
Glue the bottom of the bunny head in place on the inside of the wreath, on the bottom opposite of the rope hanger.
Once the head is glued in place, you will add on the front paws just under the head, and the bottom paws facing up from the bottom of the wreath.
Tie a small bow with the satin ribbon, and glue in place between the bunny ears.
Now you can hang your bunny wreath on your door!
