1. Fluffy Bunny Wreath

Is it a holiday without a wreath? I think not. This fluffy bunny wreath with light up your home with cuteness. Below the instructions, you'll find a photo gallery that illustrates the steps in this process to help you follow along.

Materials Needed

  • 2 wire hangers
  • Silver garland
  • Floral wire
  • Easter string light or a string of LED lights
  • An old shirt or a bow tie
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • 2 twist ties

Instructions

  1. Shape one wire hanger into a small circle. Cut your other wire hanger in half and shape ears. Attach the ears to your circle using your pliers.
  2. Begin wrapping your garland around your wire. I find it easiest to hold the beginning piece and wrap the garland on top of itself to secure it in place.
  3. Continue wrapping the garland until all the wire is covered.
  4. Wrap your string lights around your bunny. I started at the top of the head and worked my way around.
  5. If you have a bow tie, you can secure it to the bottom of your bunny using the two twist ties. If not, you can easily make one from an old shirt.
  6. To make your bow tie, lay your shirt out flat. Cut the back side of the shirt along the seams.
  7. Set the rest of the fabric aside. Lay your cut fabric out flat.
  8. Fold your fabric in half, hot dog style. Cut the fabric down the side to make your edges even.
  9. Fold in half once more, hamburger style. You will have a small to medium sized rectangle.
  10. Using your hot glue gun, glue the edges together.
  11. Pinch your fabric rectangle in the middle to create a bow. Tie an extra strip of fabric around the center to hold it in place. Cut off any excess fabric.
  12. Flip your bow so the knot you created is facing you. Slip two twist ties under the knot.
  13. Secure your bow tie to your bunny using the twist ties.
  14. Create a hook to hang your bunny wreath using the floral wire.
  15. Hang up your bunny wreath and enjoy!

2. Easter Egg Tree

This is a cute and fun decoration that would be beautiful on a mantle or as a table centerpiece. Below the instructions, you'll find a photo gallery that illustrates the steps in this process to help you follow along.

Materials Needed

  • Branches
  • Vase or container
  • Yarn or Easter grass
  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Decorative ribbon
  • Dental floss
  • Scissors
  • Beads, optional
  • Other decorative items, optional

Instructions

  1. Place a little bit of yarn or Easter grass in the bottom of your vase. I filled about a quarter of my vase with yarn.
  2. Arrange your branches in your vase. I used four branches from my yard.
  3. Place a few plastic Easter eggs in the vase for decorative purposes. This also helps keep your branches loosely in place.
  4. Open your plastic egg and string dental floss through the two holes in the top. Close your egg and tie it to a branch. Repeat this process until you have the desired amount of eggs on your tree.
  5. Add a few finishing touches to your branches for flair. You can add beads, light necklaces, thread, plastic flowers, etc. The possibilities are endless! I added some copper thread to the bottom of my branches for a subtle sparkle.
  6. Arrange a few extra eggs and yarn or grass around your branches to fill the top of your vase.
  7. Tie a decorative ribbon around your vase. You can create a fancy bow if you like. To create mine, I wrapped my ribbon around my vase, making sure the tails of the ribbon were even. I tied a tight knot to secure it. Then, I started creating loops, carefully twisting the bottom. I created two loops on each side and secured them with a twist tie. Below, I've shared a great tutorial on how to create a fancy bow.
  8. Display your easter tree on a mantle or as a table centerpiece.

3. Floppy-Eared Blanket Bunny

When I was in first or second grade, I made the cutest washcloth bunny for Easter. I remember loving the craft and treasuring my little bunny. I wanted to recreate that magic in a new way. Because I don't have any extra washcloths that would make a cute bunny, I decided to use an old blanket to create something new, and this floppy-eared blanket bunny craft was born! It's so easy to make and takes less than five minutes. This soft bunny would be adorable on the couch, or you can give it your child to cuddle at night. Below the instructions, you'll find a photo gallery that illustrates the steps in this process to help you follow along.

Materials Needed

  • Blanket
  • Large rubber band
  • Decorative ribbon or Mala beads

Instructions

  1. Unfold your blanket and lay it flat.
  2. Starting at one corner, begin folding the blanket in on itself toward the middle, a little at a time. Repeat on the opposite corner so that you have two long sections in the center.
  3. Fold the blanket in half and lay the ears next to each other in a 'V' shape.
  4. Turn the blanket so the ears face you and fold it once again.
  5. Gather your ears and wrap the rubber band around them to hold in place.
  6. Wrap a decorative ribbon or Mala beads around the ears to hide the rubber band and give your bunny interest.
  7. If you don't plan on reusing your blanket in the future, you can hot glue googly eyes on as well as pom-poms for the nose and tail.
  8. Enjoy your floppy-eared bunny!

We opted out of DIY Easter this year. Instead we have a giant, hollowed out Easter bunny head that we are going to fill with all sorts of goodies. A bit like a pinata but covered in fur. I can't wait to watch my son dump it all out. Not looking forward to the clean up, hahaha!

Alyssa (author) from Ohio on March 16, 2020:

Thank you Jason! Have a wonderful week!

Jason Nicolosi from AZ on March 14, 2020:

Thank you, Lora! It's so important to me to find ways to make crafts unique and easy to create. I think it's awesome to use things you already have on hand versus going out and spending a lot of money on supplies. I'm glad you liked these ideas. :)

Hahaha! I agree, Rochelle. Your move, Bill.

Lovely and unique crafts, Alyssa. I like the creativity that you display in using items that you can collect from your yard and those that we already have readily available. I love the tree with the branches and the blanket bunny. Thanks for sharing!

Cute ideas, and I think Bill should try the fluffy bunny wreath.

I'm just here to show support. There is no way in the world I'm doing this. I know you'll understand. :)
