Easter is approaching soon and putting together this Bunny Patch for Easter Decor was an inexpensive way to add some fun decor. I was on the hunt for Easter items at a local dollar store that I could use. I always like to have a few whimsical pieces of Easter decor.
This month, along with our group of blogging friends, we are participating in a Dollar Store Craft Challenge. This challenge is a fun one! I always enjoy finding ways to use dollar store items in my craft projects. Who doesn’t love a good deal?
Some very talented bloggers are participating in the challenge this month. Please stop by and have a look at how they met the Dollar Store Craft Challenge. You can find links to their crafts after my tutorial.
I found a number of items that I’ll be using for spring and Easter decor on my last visit to the Dollar Tree. I wasn’t sure just what I was going to make, but I selected items that looked like they would be fun to incorporate into some crafts. Some of these items I used for my Bunny Patch for Easter, others I’m using in a few other projects.
Supplies Used for Bunny Patch for Easter Decor
- Small Wreath Form
- Paper Easter Grass
- Stuffed Bunny
- Thin Teal Rope Ribbon
- Teal Cloth
- Hot Glue
- Easter Eggs
The wreath forms that I found were small ones. They measure 9.8″. That’s not very large for a wreath, but it’s a perfect size for what I had in mind. I added hot glue to the wreath and pressed the paper grass onto it. I worked in small sections to avoid having the glue cool off too quickly.
Once I had the wreath partially covered, I shook it off to allow the loose grass to fall away. I added more hot glue and continued gluing and shaking until I had the wreath fully covered.
I added a center to the back side of the wreath using a piece of green card stock. It’s glued in place and then trimmed to fit.
I have so many Easter eggs on hand that I didn’t need to buy any new ones. I picked out some in pretty colors and added them to the center of the patch.
The stuffed bunny I found at the Dollar Tree was cute. I love the brown and bronze ears and paws. I didn’t love the pink bow.
I carefully trimmed out the pink bow and replaced it with a bow tied from teal paper rope. It’s hot glued in place. I’m finding lots of uses for this rope. It’s used on my Spring Blooms Wall Art, too.
This color matches my sunroom decor and that’s where I plan on displaying my Bunny Patch for Easter.
I cut a few carrot shapes from some orange felt and added a bit of the paper rope to them. These are hot glued together and pinned in place on the grass.
I added a bunny tail by using a small rosette. It’s hot glued to the bunny.
I didn’t want to hot glue the bunny to the grass because I wasn’t sure if it would adhere well. Instead, he’s just sitting atop the patch of grass looking over the eggs. I used a couple of pearl head pins to keep him in place.
Bunny Patch for Easter Decor
My dining room will be decorated for Easter using bunnies, too, but they are porcelain and the room will have a more formal look to it. This Bunny Patch for Easter fits in well in my casual sunroom.
A trip to the dollar store always means finding fun, inexpensive items that can be used for lots of crafts. I can’t wait to see the crafts created by the others in the blog hop!
