One way I love to decorate for seasons and holidays is by adding a festive touch to the front door. Here’s the wreath I made for Spring, using the same basic technique we used to make the Farmhouse Bunny Pillow! Take a look…
1/4 yard of cotton fabric (mine is white with small grey dots)
decorative garland (I used a Pastel Berry Garland from Hobby Lobby)
hot glue gun/glue
Making Your Spring Wreath
Step 1: Cut your fabric bunny.
First, head here to download the bunny outline pattern. Print it out, then pin it to your fabric. You’ll want to fold your fabric in half, right sides out so that you can cut two bunny shapes at the same time.
Step 2: Sew the front and back of the bunny together with 1/4″ seam, leaving an opening in the bottom.
I used white thread to match my fabric and sewed around the edges with the right sides facing out. Make sure your opening is large enough to allow you to stuff Poly-Fil inside!
Step 3: Stuff your bunny and sew the bottom opening shut.
Do not turn the fabric, the right sides are already facing out! Just add Poly-Fil, using a dowel or unsharpened pencil to help you with the ears. I used the sewing machine to sew the bottom shut, but you could also stitch it by hand.
Step 4: Glue your garland and eggs to the grapevine wreath.
I glued the garland down first, trimming the excess, then added the eggs in alternating colors and positions all around the wreath.
Step 5: Glue the bunny to a popsicle stick, then glue it to the wreath. Add a tail and a bow.
The popsicle stick will add stability and help your bunny to stand up. I used a small white pom-pom for the tail and tied a bow out of pink satin ribbon. Feel free to use any color and type of ribbon you like best.
Once everything is glued in place, your wreath is ready to display. You can add a ribbon bow somewhere on the wreath if you like, but I chose not to so that the bunny was the definite focal point.
This wreath is so cheerful and colorful, bringing a little bit of Spring to any color front door! You can use whatever color and pattern of fabric you have on hand for your bunny if you’d like a different look.
What do you think? Is this a decoration you’d hang on your front door? If you make your own version, I’d love for you to share a photo in the Amy Latta & Friends Facebook Group so we can all be inspired. Be sure to Pin this project for later and to share with a friend!
