Have and hour or two available for crafting? Here’s project is one you can whip up in an afternoon! This Crochet Spring Bunny Wreath is about as simple as it can get and so festive for the Easter holiday but neutral enough to leave up for the entire Spring season! Crochet the ears with Bernat Blanket Yarn which makes them big and fluffy and sturdy. Wrap a 12 inch wreath form with the same yarn and you have yourself an adorable bunny wreath! Grab some wooden letters from Michaels Craft Store to jazz it up!

Row 15: Make 2 SC decreases, ch 1, turn
Row 16: SC decrease, ch 1, and continue to sc around the edge of the entire ear. Slip stitch to first SC to join. Leave long tail to sew ears together.
Bunny Ears (Inside Ear): Make two
Follow the pattern above but use pink yarn. When you get to row 16, make your SC decrease and then switch color to white and continue to SC around the entire ear.
Single Crochet the outer ear and the inner ear together.
Sew ears onto top of wreath using tapestry needle and white yarn. Be sure to weave several times through a good surface area of the bottom of the ear to make them stand up.
Head down the wood crafts aisle at Michaels and grab some fun lettering and wooden pennants! This part is optional 🙂
I painted the “Hello” and the SPRING letters in pink and the pennants in white. I hot glued the SPRING letters onto the wooden pennants. I then hot glued the pennants together so they overlapped.
Use a dab of hot glue in a few different spots to secure the letter onto the wreath!
Hang on inside or outside door using a command hook! You can tie a tiny little loop of yarn on the back of the wreath below the ears that the hook can slip into.
