Are asking yourself what can I do with a Dollar Tree bunny head wreath form? Well, I came up with such a pretty idea that you can make with it!! It took me about 20 minutes to make too.
Making A Moss Covered Bunny Head Wreath
Today I am part of a Bunny Hop (blog hop that is!!) put together by Janet at A Life of Balance at the end of my wreath tutorial you can check out all the creative ideas from the other 9 participants (really pretty ideas!)
If you are here from Regina over at Saved From Salvage I am still crushing on the adorable Slate Shingle Bunny she created (I have a big piece of slate down in my studio that I might try this one on!!

- Dollar Tree Bunny Wreath Form
- Grapevine Garland
- Floral Wire
- Preserved Moss
- Dried or Artificial Small Flowers
- Raffia or Ribbon
To make this wreath you will need to grab a bunny wreath from your Dollar Tree store (if yours doesn’t have any I added a link above but you have to order 4) and a grapevine garland. I have to tell you grapevine garland is a must-have on my crafting supply shelf…I’ve used it for countless things over the years from using it around my front door for Fall, adding small pieces to my Christmas tree, making a heart wreath, and most recently adding to my Spring flower crate.
Step 1. Cover The Head With Grapevine
Starting with the round part of the bunny head, I wrapped the grapevine garland around the circle while also wrapping floral wire around the grapevine to secure it to the wreath.
There are small pieces of wire in the grapevine garland and I snipped them off after I had the grapevine in place and fanned them open a bit to cover more of the black metal wreath. (I did this only for the round head portion of this wreath…not on the ears that are just a single piece of wire and easy to hide).
Step 2. Cover Bunny Ears in Grapevine
For the ears, I measured out how much grapevine garland it was going to take to cover them and cut the piece to size using my floral wire cutters.
Then I secured the grapevine in place using my floral wire,
Step 3. Add Moss to the Bunny Head WreathWreath
Now it’s time to hide the metal frame while also making the wreath look natural and organic.
I’m using a bag of preserved moss for this step but I’m sure you could use any moss that you have on hand to get a similar look.
What I did was take chunks of the moss and insert them between the grapevine pieces near the center of the frame because that is where the metal frame was showing the most.
I alternated between just sticking them in the grapevine and hot gluing the moss in place. You will be able to tell what is going to stick on its own and what you will need to glue.
I focused on adding the moss to the inside of the ears. Pulling the moss apart is a messy job so do this someplace that will be easy for you to clean up afterward.
Step 4. Finishing Details For The Wreath
To add a few pretty details to my bunny head, I hot glued a few of my dried strawflowers onto the wreath. The dried flowers are from my cutting garden (they were one of my favorite flowers to grow!) but small artificial flowers will look great too!
To finish off this cute bunny head wreath I added a simple raffia bow to keep the natural look of my wreath.

Seriously, how cute did this moss bunny head turn out??!! Sometimes the vision I have in my head turns out exactly as I had pictured it (sometimes…not so much!!)
Next up on the Bunny Blog Hop is my friend Jayne at Chalking Up Success. She has a similar crafting/DIY style as I do and I love checking out her latest creations. I seriously adore the DIY Wood Slice Bunny project she has today.
