I had fun creating an Easter craft for Chocolat Frey, and said I would show you how I did it. So, here is the tutorial on how to make the Chocolate Easter Bunny Wreath.
To make this Chocolate Easter Bunny Wreath, you will need the following supplies:
1 (12″) styrofoam wreath form
1 precut Jelly Roll Fabric pack, or 2 3/4 yards of fabric, cut in 2.5 inch strips width of fabric
5 chocolate Easter bunnies wrapped in aluminum foil, such as the Chocolat Frey Chocolate Bunnies
4 (3″) tiny plastic Easter baskets, or 4 baskets cut using Cricut Design Space
4 plastic Easter eggs
7 assorted color pipe cleaners
candy to fill the plastic eggs if you wish
2 yards satin ribbon for hanging
As you tie the strips on the wreath form, push them tightly together. Keep tying strips on until the entire wreath form is covered. Next, add your embellishments.
I tried to pick pipe cleaners that matched the color of the bunnies, so that they would blend in. I twisted the pipe cleaner around the bunny’s “neck” (I know that sounds mean, right?), then run one end of the pipe cleaner under a couple of the fabric strips and twist again. Hide the ends behind the bunny.
To attach the paper baskets to the wreath, carefully thread the pipe cleaner through the holes on one side. Run the other end of the pipe cleaner under a couple of fabric strips, and twist the ends together. Hide the ends behind the baskets. If you use plastic baskets, you will attach the same way, but don’t have to be as careful because they won’t tear as easily.
Last, fill the plastic eggs with candy, and put them in the baskets. Slip the ribbon through the wreath and bring ends together. Tie a knot in the end. All done. This is Chocolate Easter Bunny Wreath really easy to make, and requires no sewing. Do you think you would make one?
