Easter!!!   Deviled eggs, cute little chicks, chocolate covered children…such a fun day.  I always love Easter and I love to decorate for it.  I’ve definitely been in a slump decorating my house, but I did get around to doing the front door.  Here it is!

I found some folding closet doors at the restore for $5 took them apart and painted them green.  I made the bows using this pattern, click HERE.  I just hot glued those, no sewing this time.  I found the cardboard flowers at the dollar store along with the eggs on the topiaries and the fake flowers. I got the pots off KSL for $15 dollars and spray painted them.  And the wreath I made a few years ago.  You can find that tutorial and bunny pattern HERE

I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on making the topiaries and was having a hard time finding a cone shaped anything.  So! I bought two pieces of poster board, rolled them up and glued them into a cone.  I then went to town hot gluing on fake eggs and flowers.  I think they turned out pretty great!

Burlap Easter Wreath

This burlap wreath is a great way to decorate your front door for Easter.

You will need:

for wreath-

1 1/2 yards of burlap

14″  styrofoam wreath form

rotary cutter/scissors

spray bottle for wetting burlap, to help with mess

for bunny-


hot glue

buttons, ribbon, flowers (whatever you like) to decorate bunny

I found this wreath on Craftaholics Anonymous (scroll to bottom of page).

I thought if I added a cute bunny it would be a great Easter wreath.  It was very easy to make, it didn’t take much time at all.  I started by cutting a 3″ wide piece of fabric and wrapping it around my wreath form to cover the green.  I think on Craftaholic’s they painted their styrofoam, but I wanted a little more uniform coverage.

Then I started to cut the 1″ by 16″ strips of burlap.

Then I tied them around the form using double knots.  I tried to get the pieces as close together as I could.

After I had the whole thing tied, I started on my bunny.  I cut the shape out of felt, wrapped a tulle bow around its neck, added some flowers and WaaLa!

I added a little bit of super stiff felt on the back of the bunny, then hot glued it to the wreath.  I glued a 9″ piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath and hung that bad boy on my door!  Bam!
