Today we’re making a fun and beautiful Welcome Easter Bunny Wreath. This festive wreath displays all the colors of the season to spray cheer across your front door.

Hey, y’all! We’ve been busy bees making Valentine’s and Mardi Gras wreaths, and now we’re switching gears to Easter!

Today, I’m showing you how to make a deco mesh Welcome Easter Bunny wreath. It has bows, poofs, and scrunches and cheers up a space with its fun, springtime colors.

Note: You’ll notice I used an evergreen wreath base instead of a wire one. That was simply because it was on sale – I’m always looking for effective ways to save money on supplies!

Let’s get started.

How to Make a Orange Easter Bunny Welcome Wreath

Grapevine Everyday Wreath Supplies Needed

Here’s a list of everything you’ll need to make this wreath.

How To Make This Orange Welcome Easter Bunny Wreath

First up: the bows! There are three bows on this wreath. The first bow will be the biggest, the second bow is a medium size, and the third bow is the smallest.

Easter Bunny Wreath Bow

Here is a step-by-step tutorial for the largest bow. The remaining bows only vary slightly by being slightly smaller and with fewer ribbons. I’ll make a note about them in the printable card down below.

Step 1

Use the EZ Bow Maker to make your bow. Take the deco mesh ribbon and make 8-inch loops with 14-inch tails.

Step 2

Use your 4-inch ribbon to make 2 slightly smaller loops and 14-inch tails.

Step 3

Take your 3-inch ribbon and make a 7-inch loop with 14-inch tails.

Step 4

Next, take another 3-inch ribbon and make 2 slightly smaller loops and 14-inch tails.

Step 5

For the next later, grab your 3rd 3-inch ribbon and make 2 6-inch loops and 14-inch tails.

Step 6

Use your 2-inch ribbon to make 2 slightly smaller loops and 14-inch tails.

Step 7

Take your second 2-inch ribbon and make a 5-inch loop with same length tails.

Step 8

Use your third 2-inch ribbon to make 2 slightly smaller loops and 14-inch tails.

Step 9

Take your 1.5-inch ribbon and make a 4-inch loop with same length tails.

Step 10

Use your final 2-inch ribbon to make a slightly smaller center loop with same length tails.

Step 11

Your ribbon will be very thick. Pull it off your bow maker and tightly twist a pipe cleaner (by turning the bow) to secure it. Then, extend the ends of your pipe cleaner by attaching another pipe cleaner to each end.

Putting The Wreath Together

Follow these instructions to create a fun Easter wreath design!

Step 1

Take your evergreen wreath base and put it on your work table and fluff it out. Then, take your orange deco mesh and start a poof by folding the end under and curling in the sides. Use the greenery branches to attach the end of your poof to the wreath base.

Step 2

Make a 12” poof attached at about 8 inches apart. Continue this process all around the wreath (9 poofs around the outside of the wreath).

Step 3

Continue making poofs as you go around the wreath base again, this time on the inside to cover up the inner part of the wreath. Cut the mesh.

Step 4

Take your cut mesh pieces and scrunch them up, one at a time. Attach each one at the same spot where your poofs attach along the outside of your wreath base.

Step 5

Prepare to attach your bunny sign by taking a piece of craft foam and cutting out 3 1-inch squares. Stack the 3 squares on top of each other and put the stack on the back of the bunny head part of the sign. 

Add your pipe cleaner to the top of the stack and use your staple gun to attach the entire stack to the sign. This method will prevent the staple from coming through the front of the sign. Add a little bit of hot glue to seal it.

Repeat this same process further down the sign, around the middle of the back of the carrot. Then again one final time at the bottom of the sign.

Step 6

Once the glue is dry, attach the sign by pushing the pipe cleaners directly through the mesh and the wreath frame then twist to secure in the back of the frame.

Step 7

Attach your large bow to your wreath with the pipe cleaners.

Step 8

Dovetail the bow tails. Fluff out your bow.

Step 9

Attach extra pipe cleaners to extend the length of the pipe cleaners on your 2nd bow so they will fit around your wreath. Attach your bow to the top of your wreath. Fluff it out and dovetail the tails.

Step 11

Cut your 5-inch deco mesh into 14-inch strips. Scrunch them up and attach them to the outside of the wreath back.

Step 12

Grab your 4th 3-inch ribbon and cut it into 14-inch strips. Repeat this with one of your 1.5-inch ribbons. And again with your 2nd 1.5-inch ribbon.

Step 13

Stack 4 strips of ribbon on top of each other. Scrunch in the middle and attach to the outside of your wreath. Repeat this process around the outside of the wreath.

Step 14

Extend the pipe cleaner by attaching 2 pipe cleaners. Attach to the wreath base, fluff it out.
