Every year when I pull out my Easter decorations my son accuses me of having an obsession with bunny butts. I've put them on tote bags. I've put them on banners and pillow covers. And now I'm putting them on wreath. I can't help it - those little fluffy tails are just too cute!
When I started experimenting with ideas for this wreath I couldn't decide whether I wanted a ruffled version or a non-ruffled version, so I made both. And I'm sharing directions for both versions so you can make whichever one you like best.
Here's what you'll need for the ruffled wreath:
- A 12" round wreath form
- 3/4 yards of fabric for the ruffle
- A 12" round wreath with a flat top and bottom
- Scrap fabric to wrap the wreath form.
- White fabric scraps (two pieces at least 8-1/2" x 11")
- Orange fabric scraps
- Green 1/2 rickrack
- A 3" pompom for the bunny's tail
- Polyfil stuffing
- A glue gun
- Templates for the bunny and carrots (download the file here)
Repeat for as many carrots as you want. I used six for each wreath, but depending on how you arrange them you may wan more or fewer.
