The Spring season is fast approaching which includes the celebration of Easter. When I decorate for Spring I usually just sprinkle a little Easter decorations here and there. This year I wanted to try adding a little more Easter decor and what better way than a DIY Easter wreath to hang out on our covered porch.
Supplies Needed for DIY Easter Wreath
- Moss wreath
- Assorted faux flowers
- Bunny decor pick
- String, yarn or ribbon for hanging
- Glue gun
- Wire cutters
I had seen these moss wreaths online at Michaels and loved the look so I decided to base my wreath off of this base. In addition to ordering the moss wreath I also ordered a bunny pick to put in the middle of the wreath. I have a lot of faux flowers already in my craft stash so I figured I would search there after the order arrived.
The moss wreath ring arrived and just to note to make sure you don’t handle it too much before you start crafting as it does shed a lot of the moss if handled. When I searched my flower stash I found some greenery, some flowers and some berry type flower picks that were in Spring colors that would work perfectly.
After grabbing my wire cutters I start cutting the flowers in smaller pieces and grabbed my glue gun. Before starting to glue down the flower pieces I placed them on the wreath to see if I liked the placement. Once I was done with this I started to hot glue the pieces to the moss.
I also cut the bunny pick wire shorter so that it could be pushed into the frame center. This wreath is made of styrofoam so it is very lightweight and the pick pushed in easily.
After the glue dried I used some of my macrame cord to create a loop for hanging on the back. Now this wreath is perfect for welcoming visitors to our home. Another benefit is that the bunny can easily be removed after Easter and then it will be a perfect piece of decor for Spring. I love having decor pieces that can be re-used for different seasons.
