Now before you run away because you know you don't have time to make any cute bunny wreaths for Easter because…you know, mom life. Let me tell you I used to feel the exact same way. I used to feel stressed and frazzled and like I had something to do every minute of the day, and I still couldn't keep up. Then I started figuring out my Real Organized Mom Systems, and they made such a difference that I've found I actually have some free time now. Woot, woot!
I still didn't feel like I had enough time to finish a fun craft for my own little “me time” or creative outlet because while I may not feel stressed and overwhelmed all the time, let's face it, mom life doesn't leave much extra time. So, I got creative again, and I've been figuring out how to break the crafts I want to do down into smaller steps. That means I can still craft here and there and finish a project. It makes me so happy! Which of course, makes me a better mom. 😍
The inspiration for this wreath came while walking through Target. I saw the wreath in the Easter section. It was only $12. I contemplated buying it, but it was a little smaller than what I wanted, and I also thought it would be cheaper and more fun to make it myself. Turns out I was almost right. Lol! I like that I was able to make mine larger and it was fun to make, but it cost me about $12 to make it.
Let me show you how to make this cute Easter wreath and how to break it into smaller steps you can do between family life.

- Craft Ring or Wreath Form
- White yarn (2 skeins)
- Clover Pom Pom Maker
- Hot Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
- White Felt
- Pink Felt
- Ear Template (at the bottom of the post)
Step 1: Make pom poms
You'll need about 45 pom pom if you're using a 12″ craft ring like I did.
I used the clover small pom pom maker (1 5/8″) (affiliate link). It took 2 skeins of yarn.
Making the pom poms takes a while. About 3 hours is my best guess. Just work a little at a time as you have time between mom life and you'll get it done.
Pom poms are also an easy thing to take with you and make in a waiting room or at a soccer match, etc. So, make it work in your life.
Step 2: Glue pom poms to craft ring or wreath form
Since I'd recently made another pom pom wreath, I'd learned a trick or two that helped this process go even faster.
You'll want to lop off one side of your pom poms. Being careful not to get too close to the center of the pom pom.
Then add a little bit of hot glue to that now lopped off part and let the glue set.
It helps the pom pom stick to the craft ring or wreath form better.
Add a generous amount of hot glue to the craft ring.
Press and hold the pom pom to the craft ring until it has set.
Place pom poms on the craft ring caddy corner to each other filling in the entire ring.
Step 3: Cut and glue bunny ears
You'll find a template at the bottom of this post that you can use to cut your ears. They'll work best if you're using the same size craft ring I used.
Cut your bunny ears out of felt.
Then add a line of hot glue down the center of the pink ear piece and stick it to the white ear piece.
Step 4: Glue ears to craft ring
Step 5: Glue ribbon to craft ring
You'll want a way to hand your wreath, so add some ribbon to the center on the back at the top of the craft ring.
Make sure to use plenty of hot glue and wait until it cools and has set before hanging your wreath.
Step 6: Enjoy!
And you have an adorable bunny wreath!
As you can see, I added mine on top of the pink gingham wall art I made which makes the cute bunny stand out even more. Fun!
Now, this one isn't a quick craft, but it's so cute it's worth taking the time to make. Also, you can use the steps I've show you to break it down and fit it into your life.
When you finish, you're going to feel like a mom rockstar because you found a way to take care of your family and make some time for something creative. Nothing better than that as a creative mom.
I find it helps me be a better mom because I'm fulfilling my need for a creative outlet and not feeling like crap that I abandoned everyone so I could be creative. Total win-win!
