 Easy DIY Bunny Butt Wreath

 

Bunny bottoms are adorable crafts. This cute, simple to make, bunny butt wreath is an inexpensive to make spring craft, perfect decor for your door, over your fireplace or on a wall.

In my opinion, the bunny butt/bunny bottom trend is super cute!! Not all the bunny butt wreaths are easy to make, however. This bunny bottom wreath is so simple to do! Grapevine wreaths are very springy and Easter-ish. The bottom is simply the tail and not paws – which is what makes this a wreath nearly anyone can make! No need to follow a pattern either (which is great for the patterned-challenged!!).

Like most of the crafts you will find on this blog, this is easily customizable. Use a different sized wreath or a green form wreath with green ribbon wrapped around it! Make your bunny butt smaller or larger. Use different spring flowers other than the baby breath shown. There is really no end to the things you can do following this simple tutorial as a base!

If you would like some other cute and easy spring/Easter crafts, this No Sew Sock Bunny is adorable! This Spring Themed DIY Framed Dot Art is simple to make, and those of you with children may want to consider this Easter Bunny Garland!

The materials needed are linked below if you wish to see exactly what they are and/or buy online. Otherwise, write down the list and head over to your nearest Michaels for the supplies that you do not already have handy.

Easy DIY Bunny Butt Wreath Directions:

• The bunny butt is the star of the show on this wreath. Anything you do with spring flowers, carrots, etc should not detract from this cute little bunny bottom.
• The grapevine wreath used in this tutorial is 10″. If you purchased (or have) a smaller or larger grapevine wreath, adjust sizes accordingly.

• Cut a large square (a 10″ x 10″ size is used in this tutorial) from the fake fur.
• Place the cut fake fur face down on a flat surface (fur side down).
• Place down a handful (or more) of polyester stuffing on top of the fur-side down fake fur.

• Fold up the edges of the fake fur to make a little bag. It will look like a little favor bag. Tie it closed with some twine. Leave a long piece of the twine to dangle so you can use it to tie the bunny butt to the wreath.

• Tie the bunny butt you just made to the wreath using the long twine you left dangling. In this tutorial, the bunny butt is placed at 5 o’clock on the dial and the long string on the twine wraps around and through the grapevine wreath to secure the bunny bottom. You can place your bunny’s bottom anywhere you would like on the grapevine wreath.
• Adhere securely with a few dabs of hot glue.

• Use wire cutters to cut off each individual bloom segment from your greenery.
• Arrange this greenery around the bunny butt to give the illusion that the bunny is hiding in a field of flowers.
• Adhere securely with a few dabs of hot glue.

• Tie several fake carrots together with twine, again leaving a long string free so you can tie the carrot bunch to the wreath. Used in this tutorial are three fake carrots taking into account the 10″ size of this grapevine wreath. If you use a larger wreath form, you may want to consider five carrots and/or larger fake carrots.

• Tie the carrot bunch to the 10 o’clock position of the wreath. Again, you can place your carrots anywhere on your wreath. The carrots are across from the bunny in this case because he is burrowing through the vines to get to the carrots across from him.
• Adhere securely with a few dabs of hot glue.

DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs Ingredients:

• 2 cups Baking Soda
• 1 cup Citric Acid
• 15 drops Pure Orange Essential Oil
• 15 drops Pure Pure Grapefruit Essential Oil

DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs Directions:

• Mix the baking soda and citric acid in your mixing bowl well, making sure to remove any lumps before you begin the next step. Sometimes the citric acid can have some good size lumps in it.

Tip: If you plan on using citric acid for other recipes, buy it online in a larger amount as it is much cheaper to purchase a large quantity than a small quantity. The little bottles you can buy at the local store do not have much in them and they are very pricey. Store your citrus acid in a glass jar to keep it fresh.

Note: If you plan on making more than one egg color, you will need to divide up the mixture before putting in the food coloring. Decide now, or stick to one color.

• Add your food coloring a few drops (2-4) at a time – because a little food color goes a long way. When you begin to wet the mixture with the witch hazel, the color will become brighter. Also, adding a lot of food coloring at once will actually activate the fizzing process which you don’t want.

• It WILL fizz some though, so don’t panic.

• Once your food coloring is mixed in nicely and you have an even coloring, add your essential oils. Mix well.

• The final mixing will be done with your hands (hence the gloves).

• Take Witch Hazel spray bottle and spray a few sprays into your mixture a few sprays at a time, and using your hands, start mixing the powder until it begins to clump up. Add more sprays as needed.

Note: You don’t want your mixture to get it too wet or your mixture will fizz so spray slowly. The consistency is much like a dry snow. Your bath bomb mixture needs to stick together but not be dripping wet. Scrunch the mixture up in the palm of your hand and when it starts to stay together in a clump, then you know you’re getting close. (The mixture will actually get cold as you do this, and that is normal!)

• Now you are ready to pack your mixture into the Plastic Easter Eggs. Make certain you push the bath bomb mixture all the way down into the egg and pack it in so you get a full, nice shape when it is done. Scrape off the top excess and add it back into the bowl and repeat until your eggs are full.

Tip: If you end up with any extra bath bomb mixture and don’t have any more eggs to use, you can use silicone ice cube trays or candy trays for nice shapes too!

• Let the Easter Egg Bath Bombs sit in the eggs for at least 30 minutes or so to be sure they are set up nicely. If they are too dry, they will totally crumble when you flip the trays over. If this happens, just put them back in the bowl and wet the mixture a little more. That is a better option than having them be too wet, so don’t be discouraged. (You will know if they are too wet, because they will be fizzing some and will get sticky – if this happens, add in some more of the baking soda and citric acid.)

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor, and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils or making your own bath bombs so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils and making your own bath bombs.
