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-

felt

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!
