Happy Monday! Do you have a hard time springing forward? As much as I look forward to an extra hour of daylight, it always takes me a couple of weeks for my body clock to get used to the time change. With spring arriving next week and Easter three weeks away, I’m ready to spring forward with bunnies and blooms!
I picked up this forsythia wreath at the end of the season last year on clearance. Like forsythia, I’ve been biding my time waiting for the buds to burst into bloom to welcome spring.
A moss-covered bunny hopped home with me from HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago. I wasn’t sure how I would use him but I picture him making an appearance on my Potting Shed door before spring is over. I removed the grapevine bow that was wired to the front. The basket pocket in the front is begging to be filled with flowers or Easter eggs!
Spring and Easter ribbon were 50% off at Hobby Lobby and Michaels last week. I picked some colorful yellow and orange plaid ribbon to pair with polka dots and checks, along with a ribbon sprouting carrots.
You want wire-edged ribbon for best results to make an easy bow. I used 6 different patterns of ribbon in varying widths but use fewer patterns or whatever you can find or have on hand. My ribbon widths ranged from 1 1/2 inches to 2 1/2 inches.
To make an easy bow, I cut ribbon into 32 inch lengths. Form loops to the size you want and pinch the ribbon loop in the middle. If your ribbon has a pattern on just one side, twist the back tail of the ribbon around so your pattern faces to the front. Repeat the process with your ribbon holding your loops together and tie your loop off with a pipe cleaner. Fluff your loops to arrange your bow and tie your bow to your wreath with your pipe cleaner.
I divided a trio of raffia-topped carrots, tucking one into the bunny’s arms and tying two with ribbon to hang from the wreath.
I added some additional green moss to the bunny pocket and then removed it, thinking it would be an invitation for birds to nest on the front door.
I’m not sure what makes it more inviting, with or without moss, but I’ll probably move the wreath indoors or to the porch to prevent the birds from moving in!
With spring arriving next week, you can find a little ‘rabbit rabbit’ and Easter inspiration. HERE.
Thank you for your visit!
