This is one of the easiest wreaths you could possibly make, and it turns out so cute. You could make this easy Easter ribbon wreath in less than an hour and use all things purchased at the Dollar Tree. It’s almost embarrassing to dedicate an entire post to this project, but it really is the perfect decoration if you don’t want to spend a lot of time or money, and you end up with a really nice wreath for your door. Read through my simple tutorial below. I’ve listed materials, most of which can be found at the Dollar Tree, however, I know that sometimes the store no longer has the item, so I’m giving you Amazon links for the same or similar products, just in case you can’t find them.
The first thing you will need to do is take the mesh ribbon and wrap it tightly around the wire wreath bunny frame. I first glued the end to the back of the frame at the base of one ear, and I tightly wrapped pieces around, but I kept the mesh ribbon open. This kept me from using too much of the mesh ribbon, because you are going to cover most of it up anyway. For this step, I only wrapped from the base of one ear, around the round part, and then I stopped at the base of the other ear.
Next, using the same lavender mesh ribbon, I wrapped both ears, wrapping tighter, and keeping the wrapped ribbon closer together as I went around. All the time, making sure to hot glue the end pieces of the wire ribbon in place when you start or stop. I also put a little bit of hot glue in the back of the pieces of mesh ribbon as I went along.
Then I chose 3 patterns of ribbon that I found at the Dollar Tree: a lavender gingham pattern, plain lavender, and light blue. I cut four 20-inch strips of each pattern (color).
Next, I made simple bows, using the strips of ribbon, and tied them around the wreath leaving approximately 1-1/2” to 2” between each bow. It’s up to you how close you want them to be to each other. After tying each bow, I put a drop of hot glue onto the ribbon on the back side of the wreath and a drop of hot glue on the bow, concealing on the side but making sure it won’t become untied. When the bows have been tied, you will have a little on each end that needs to be trimmed, so just snip each end of the ribbon, to the length you’d like it to be, trimming it with a diagonal cut.
The final step in this wreath was to take two silk flowers and tuck them into the mesh ribbon at the base of the bunny ears. I chose these small, purple flowers, but you could use any that you like. Once you tuck the wire stem under the mesh ribbon, secure it in place with a bit of hot glue.
