DIY Bunny Butt Easter Egg Wreath Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Paint the Wooden Picket Fence Pieces

Begin by painting your wooden fence pieces with white paint. Apply two coats for full coverage and allow them to dry completely.

Step 2: Place Easter Eggs in Wreath Form

Place one wreath form upside down on your work surface, so the curved back is against the table and creates a place to set the eggs. Lay out your Easter eggs on one of the wreath forms, arranging them in the desired color pattern.

Step 3: Attach Picket Fence to Easter Egg Wreath Form

Once the fence pieces are dry, zip tie them together and then attach them to the wreath form using zip ties. Place the piece of cardstock or cardboard at the bottom of the fence pieces and secure it with hot glue to help hold the picket fence in place.

Step 4: Add Moss/Grass to Fence

Glue some moss to the lower section of the fence. Apply hot glue to the cardstock and press the moss on top to create a grassy base.

Step 5: Add the Easter Bunny to the Wreath

Attach the bunny butt (or whatever Easter character you chose) to the moss using hot glue, ensuring it is firmly in place.

Common Questions About This Bunny Butt Easter Egg Wreath DIY

Can I use different types of glue instead of hot glue?

While hot glue is recommended for its strong and quick-drying properties, you can certainly use other types of craft glue such as tacky glue or E6000. Just be sure to allow for adequate drying time and test the bond before hanging your wreath. You can also use floral wire to hold elements in place, by itself or in conjunction with the glue.

Where can I find the materials for this craft?

Many of the materials needed for the Easter Egg Bunny Butt Wreath can be found at your local dollar store or craft store. You can also purchase them online from retailers like Dollar Tree or Amazon for added convenience.

Can I make this wreath with real eggs instead of plastic ones?

While using real eggs may seem like a charming idea, they can be fragile and prone to cracking, especially in warmer temperatures. Plastic Easter eggs offer durability and longevity, making them the preferred choice for this craft.

Can I spray paint the wreath form?

Yes! If you’d prefer a different color, you can easily spray paint the black wire wreath frame to the color of your choice. Gold spray paint adds a bit of glam, or choose a spring green, or a pastel blue pink or yellow for a soft Easter touch.

How can I hide the zip ties on the wreath forms?

When trimmed short, the zip tie connectors are hardly visible. If you’d like to hide them and dress up the Easter egg wreath DIY a little bit more, loop colorful Easter ribbon around the outside edges of the wreath frames to create visual interest and add a pop of color to the Easter egg outline.
