Learn how to make an adorable DIY Easter bunny wreath with this step-by-step tutorial! In about 30 minutes you’ll have a cute and fluffy bunny decoration to hang on your front door or prop on your mantel.
Although we live in a densely populated suburban neighborhood, sometimes I feel like we’re out in the country.
Especially when I look out my window and catch five wild rabbits munching on my flowers. Or worse, simply sitting in the yard just out of my dog’s reach, staring her down.
Which inevitably leads to my pooch going ballistic and me screaming “LEAVE IT!” so loudly, the neighbors must think I’m totally bonkers.
As cute as they seem, the only rabbit I want anywhere near my house is the Easter bunny. So on a recent snowy day when I was feeling crafty, I came up with this cute and fluffy DIY Easter bunny wreath.
Yes, I’m aware that the ears are a little short and my little bunny bears a resemblance to a Persian cat, but please ignore that and focus on the cute pompom tail.
I raided my stash of craft supplies and used what I had to make a mini bunny wreath, but if you have or buy larger embroidery hoops you can make yours as large as you want.
Once you gather your supplies, this DIY Easter bunny wreath will only take 30 minutes or less.
So grab your hot glue gun and let’s get crafting!

How to Make an Easter Bunny Wreath in 30 Minutes
A note about embroidery hoops: Embroidery hoops come in two pieces: an inner ring and outer ring. Turning the screw adjusts the outer ring around the inner ring to keep the fabric in place.
We’ll begin with the larger of the two embroidery hoops by separating the hoop’s rings. Place the white felt over the inner hoop, close to the corner of your felt piece so you can save as much of the felt as possible for the next steps. Then loosen the outer hoop until it fits over the fabric-covered inner hoop, and tighten the screw until the outer hoop fits snugly and the felt is taught and wrinkle-free.
Flip the hoop over and use scissors to trim the extra felt.
Separate the small embroidery hoop and cut your wire a few inches long.
Wrap the wire around the small embroidery hoop’s inner hoop and the large hoop’s screw to connect the bunny’s head to its butt. 😉
Flip the whole thing over so it’s right-side-up and repeat step 1 to add the felt to the smaller hoop. This sandwiches the wire between the inner and outer hoops, so you may need to adjust the screw a bit more.
Now it’s time to make your DIY Easter bunny wreath nice and fluffy! Heat up your hot glue gun and, working in short sections, adhere the feather boa around both the small and large hoops. The feathers will hide the wire and screws.
Let’s make bunny ears! Use your white felt scraps and a little bit of pink felt to make the ears, using your hot glue to stick the two pieces together. I cut the pieces freehand and definitely made them a bit too short. Oh well!
Flip your Easter bunny wreath over and use hot glue to attach the ears to the back of the head.
Lastly, glue a big, fluffy white pompom to the front of the wreath to make a tail, and loop a ribbon through the top hoop’s screw.
