Every Holiday is a good excuse for adding decorations. Easter is no exception, and we are pleased to bring spring into our homes. If you like fresh and modern Easter decor, this bunny wreath made of wooden beads will please you. It is a quite simple Easter craft to make that you can finish in less than one hour, watch the video to find out all the details.
You can hang it on your front door or on a wall. I kept the bunny wreath very minimal but feel free to add some flowers or a ribbon for a personal touch.
This beaded bunny was created for spring and Easter, but it will also make a nice wall decoration for a kid’s room, don’t you agree?
How to make an Easter Bunny Wreath
Materials you will need to make your beaded wreath:

Print and assemble the two sheets of the template, to have a bunny head shape.
Cut a piece of wire, about 1 1/4 yard long. Fold one end and pass the beads thought it. You can choose to play with several wooden beads sizes or keep it uniform using a unique bead size, up to you. Once you are done passing the beads fold the second end of the wire.
You must leave part of the wire visible, this will allow you to move the beads around and bend the wire more easily to create the bunny shape.
Start by placing the center of your wire on the space between the bunny hears, fold the hears shapes using a plier.
Keep folding the wire following the template shape. Add or remove beads if necessary to finish with both wire ends in the lower part of the bunny head shape.
Fold both wires to makes loops and keep the wreath close. Cut the extra wire length, flatten the loops and hide them into the beads.
Attach an invisible nylon thread on top of the bunny head and hang your wreath where you like. Another option is to attach each end of the thread at each hear tip. It makes it easier to hang the wreath straight. It’s what I did to hang the wreath on my door and it works like a charm.
