It’s finally starting to warm up here in East Tennessee! I was very ready to see a little more sunshine around here. This is our first Spring here so I have been having so much fun watching the trees start to bud – and the grass is getting so green again! I feel all inspired – I want to decorate everything with bright colors and celebrate! So I made up a new Spring wreath!
This darling Spring Pom Pom Wreath is super easy to make with it’s sweet felt Easter bunny, pom poms, mini eggs and a tiny little fabric bunting to finish it all off.
I had to add in a few vintage fabrics – cause that’s what I do – but you could decorate with any little fabric scraps you have. This project is perfect for using up odds and ends of your fabric and yarn.
So let’s get started!
How to make a Spring Pom Pom Wreath
- Yarn – Lt. Green, Dk. Green, White
- White Felt
- Blue Embroidery Thread/Needle
- Fabric Scraps
- Baker’s Twine
- Mini Easter Eggs
- Hot Glue
- Wreath Form
- Bunny Pattern
Begin by wrapping the wreath entirely in jute. Maybe put on your favorite movie – this takes just a little while.
Cut out two bunny silhouettes from felt. Sew the two pieces together with a blank stitch. You can find Embroidery Stitch instructions here.
Continue until your bunny is all stitched together. If you don’t want to use embroidery, you could do an easy running stitch or just glue the pieces together. You don’t need to add a face, since this is the back of the bunny.
Create pom poms from your green yarn in two different sizes. Create one white pom pom for your bunny tail.
Wrap a piece of scrap fabric around your bunny’s neck and tie a bow. Place the bunny on the side of the left wreath and glue the pom pom tail in place. Place the green pom poms around the bunny to form the grass. You can glue these in place or use pins to hold them to the wreath form.
Add in the Mini Easter Eggs around the the pom poms.
Cut more fabric scraps into a mini bunting and glue the pieces along a piece of baker’s twine. Tie a bow in each end of the baker’s twine
Glue the bunting in place along the top, right side of the wreath to finish it off!
Now you have a cute Spring decoration – no matter what the weather is like outside!
I hope you give it a try!
