Spring is definitely in the air and I think your are going to love this Moss Bunny Wreath Update. As I’m writing this post the sun is shining bright. The birds are chirping, and I have my window open. For some of you that may not be a big deal, but here in PA for mid-March that’s a pretty big deal.
I’ve been spending some time going through my spring and Easter decor. Joyfully decorating my home for the new season when I came across this bunny wreath. I purchased it as a deep clearance item at the end of spring last year and I’m not gonna lie, it looks a bit shabby. While I like burlap, This particular burlap ribbon is a bit, well, too shabby for my liking. I can definitely do better.
One thing I’m not a fan of is ribbon that does not have wire in it. I mean, if you’re going to make a bow it needs to be nice and full, not flat. So off it comes. It was easy to remove. A quick tug and some peeling and voila no more shaggy, flat burlap.
I chose a nice wired ribbon with a tan and cream check pattern. It’s a nice neutral color and pattern. I think it looks very fresh and just right for spring. In my opinion it is just what this moss covered bunny needed. Keep your eye out for sales on ribbon especially after each holiday or season. This is the best way to save money on ribbon and goes a long way with quick little decorating updates. You don’t have to break the bank to freshen up your home.
Making bows can be intimidating I will admit. I’m not as good as I wish I were, but I get by. My advice is just keep practicing or find a friend who is great at making bows and bribe them to make one for you. I opted practices makes perfect. I know there are so many different ways you can make a bow. Another cute option would be to make a shabby or rag bow where you just tie together a slew of ribbon strips then attach it to your wreath. Would you like to see a tutorial on that let me know I’d love to show you.
Here it is a simple updated bow on my moss covered bunny wreath. What do you think? I think he will look great on my porch. If you want to see more bunny DIY’s go to this post.
