Easter is usually a quiet holiday when it comes to decorating in my house but I love to have a fun wreath on my door. Our yard starts to look so pretty with trees and flowers blooming and this DIY Easter Wreath just makes everything look happy.
To make this DIY Easter Wreath you'll need a few things from the craft store.
Every blue link you see here will take you to where yo can buy the items I used to make this wreath. They are provided for your convenience if you buy something we receive financial support at no extra cost to you. I found a square grapevine wreath with greenery on it at a local store but you can make your own with this round grapevine wreath and a simple ivy garland. Just wind the ivy in a circle on top of the grapevine wreath and attach with small pieces of green floral wire by wrapping it around the wreath and twisting the two ends together on the back.
I then took a wooden bunny cut out and spray painted it brown so it looked like a chocolate bunny. I added a yellow and white wired ribbon bow tie and attached it using green pipe cleaners and hot glue. Just wrap the pipe cleaners around the back and twist to secure.
Next, I added a tulip bouquet I cut in half behind the rabbit and these cute burlap carrots in the opposite corner. To finish this wreath off I made this easy paper banner with my Cricut Explore Air. If you have never experienced a Cricut before it is the best money I have every spent when it comes to crafting. I used to spend tons of money on stickers, craft punches, pre-cut packages of things that had 30 in them when I only needed one. That led to wasted money and lots of junk cluttering up my closet. For the cost of a few craft punches and tools, I could have paid for one Cricut. To learn more about what a Cricut can do see How Creating with Cricut Explore Air 2 Will Save you Money.
Here is a quick video tutorial to show you how I made the banner with my Cricut Explore Air or you can scroll down to see it in pictures.
How to make a paper banner for your DIY Easter Wreath
I used yellow and green paper to coordinate with the colors already on my wreath and orange and white twine. Once I cut my banner pieces I used a glue stick to sandwich the twine between the two layers. Make sure to you smooth out your twine when applying it so your letters won't flip everywhere when you hang it up. You can use scrapbook stickers for your letters if you don't have a Cricut Machine but these were cut out of adhesive indoor vinyl. Apply transfer tape to the top of your vinyl letter cutout and scrape it with the Cricut scraper.
Peel the backing off of the vinyl and place on your banner. Scrape the transfer tape with the Cricut scraper again and peel off the transfer tape.
Here is how it looks when it's done! This took me about 10 minutes total to make.
I attached the banner to the wreath by tieing it to the base of the leaves and I was done. I love how it turned out. It's so festive. If you want to hang this wreath outside I would recommend putting the banner pieces together without the twine and laminating them first. Then you can apply the twine or a heavier ribbon to the back with E6000 Craft Glue.
