How Can I Make an Affordable Wreath for Spring?

Dollar store supplies used for wreath for spring, pizza pan, white dust mom, easter bunny.

Do you ever just get inspired as you’re walking through the store?!

As Steph and I were walking through the aisles at Dollar Tree I spotted this fluffy micro fiber dust mop.

And we agreed that it would make a cute bunny for a wreath for spring.

As we continued strolling through the store we started to gather items that we thought would be fun for our Easter bunny wreath.

Along with the mop, we decided to purchase a small Easter bunny and use the legs for the ears.

In addition, we purchased a pizza pan for the base for our wreath.

Clearly, the items we came up with are unexpected, however we are loving how this cute spring wreath turned out.

Please share with us what unexpected items you’ve used for a wreath. We’d love to hear from you!

In fact, another wreath we made with unexpected items is our Simple Summer Garden Wreath.

How to Make the Bunny for Spring Wreath

Tie a white string around 1/3 of the dust mop for form a head for the Easter bunny spring wreath.

In order to make the dust mop look like a bunny, I needed to form a head.

I did this by tying a piece of string around the dust mop and knotting it on the backside.

Insert wire into each bunny ear.

Of course my bunny would need floppy ears. So for the ears I used the legs from the floppy legged Dollar Tree bunny.

To help the ears hold their shape, place a piece of craft wire in each bunny leg and cut it to length.

Attach bunny ears to body with hot glue.

Next, glue the opening closed for each ear and attach them to the head portion with hot glue.

Apply hot glue to pom pom for bunny tail.

Last, but not least, my bunny would need a fluffy tail.

For this I used a fluffy fur pom pom and attached it with hot glue.

Once it was all put together, it looks like this.

Pizza Pan Chalk Board

Next, it’s time to make the chalkboard portion of my wreath for spring.

For this I simply used a pizza pan from Dollar Tree and painted it with chalkboard paint that I already had on hand.

Spray on two light coats of paint and let cure.

Rub chalk on the back of words to transfer to pizza pan.

This is my cheater method to get a cute font on my chalkboard signs.

First, print your message on paper. 

Then, rub the backside of the paper with chalk.

Place the printed message on chalkboard and trace over letters with a stylus or pencil.

With a white chalk marker, write the words "Hello Spring".

Finally, go over letters with a chalk marker.

TIP: If you have any areas that get a little wide, take a damp cotton swab and rub along the area you would like to remove. This is an easy way to clean up the edges.

Attach Cord for Hanging & Embellish

Form a hole on each side of the pizza pan to attach hanger.

I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole through the edge of the pizza pan for adding my hanger cord.

If you don’t have access to a crop-a-dile, you can also drill a hole or punch a hole through with a large nail.

With hot glue attach 1/2 round wood beads to the edge of the black painted pizza pan.

Now for the fun part, embellishing!

I added a few decor carrots from Dollar tree and placed a knotted polka dot ribbon by the “neck” of the bunny.

The carrots from Dollar Tree are so cute, I also love the way Steph used them on her Spring Bunting and also in her apothecary jar.

As I looked at my wreath for spring, I felt like it still needed a little bit more.

I scoured my crafted supplies and found leftover half wooden balls.

Don’t you think that add the finishing touch to my wreath for spring?!

Simply adhere the wood balls with hot glue to the edge of the pizza pan.

To me, the wood balls add a bit of Boho farmhouse vibe to my bunny wreath.
