Dollar Store Craft: Easter Bunny Wreath

Since Spring and Easter are both just around the corner, I thought I'd share my Dollar Tree Easter Bunny Hat Wreath as my craft for the March Dollar Store Craft Challenge that I'm participating in with several of my blogging friends. For this challenge, we each create a craft using supplies from the Dollar Store.


While searching for Easter wreath inspiration on Pinterest, I found Rock-A-Bye Parents' DIY Easter Bunny Wall Hanging and decided to make my own. So my daughter and I went shopping at the Dollar Tree to pick up a few straw hats. My daughter fell in love with a lavender hat I bought, and she's been wearing it around the house and when we go on errands. Everyone says, "She looks ready for Easter!"  I also bought pink, green, and blue hats. For this bunny wreath, I decided to use the pink hat for the face and half of the blue hat as the bunny's hat. I still plan to use the green hat to make another bunny door wreath since this craft project was fun and easy.

SUPPLIES:
2 pastel hats
fabric scraps
3 buttons
white felt
pink felt
twigs
glue gun
needle & thread

hats from the Dollar Tree

I decided to use the pink hat for the bunny's face, and the blue hat would be the bunny's hat, so I cut it in half.

I used white felt and black buttons for the eyes, white felt for the teeth, and a pink button for the nose.


I attempted to use a Sharpie to draw the mouth, but that didn't work so well. Hence, I cut up some black scrap fabric to make the mouth.

I thought it would be cool to use twigs from a grapevine wreath for the bunny's whiskers.

I made the bunny ears using white and pink felt.

I used scrap fabric to make a few rosettes for the hat.

I glued the rosettes to the hat.

I stitched on the blue hat after I glued on the bunny ears.

I didn't like the pink flower that was on the pink hat, so I replaced it with a yellow rosette.

Now we have our own Easter Bunny greeting us and our guests at the door.

I hope you will visit all the participating blogs to see their wonderful Dollar Store creations, too!
