Do you put a spring wreath on your front door? Follow along with this tutorial for an easy spring wreath idea.
I love finding craft inspiration at the dollar store. When I came across an acrylic bunny rabbit I knew it had to go on a wreath. You could use any animal to create this spring wreath. First, I had to cut it in half so it would lay flat on the wreath. Sadly, I didn’t get a photo. I used a hand saw and cut directly between his ears, straight down through the body. It took a bit of muscle but resulted in a fairly clean cut.
Easy Spring Wreath Idea
- Foam Ball- relative in size to the body of your garden animal. Cut in half
- Grapevine wreath- I used 24″
- Hot glue gun
- Craft wire
- Drill and tiny drill bit
- Faux flowers and greenery
How to attach a Garden Bunny on a Spring Wreath for your Front Door
First, using a large knife cut the styrofoam ball in half. Using hot glue, adhere it to the grapevine wreath. Apply a few lines of hot glue into the cavity of the bunny and quickly place it down over the styrofoam ball. Be sure to press firmly so the shape of the animal forms tightly over the ball.
I wanted to put this on the front door. To be sure the bunny was secure on the wreath, I drilled two small holes on either side of the animal (you can do this step prior to gluing it down). Then using craft wire I wrapped it around the wreath and secured it in the holes.
From here I decorated with flower picks and greenery (also bought at the dollar store). I used bright pinks, white, a variety of greens and a touch of soft pink to make it cheery and perfect for your front door this spring!
To arrange the flowers around the bunny, simply cut the wire stem to approx 6″ long and push it into the grapevine wreath. Start with a base of greenery then add in the larger flowers to fill in space. To finish it off, us the hot glue to fill in any empty spaces.
