This is a fun wreath to do by yourself or with a group. It takes a while to make all the little construction paper rings, so make sure you set aside enough time before Easter to finish your wreath.
Kaitlyn put an "Easter thought" on the inside of most of the pink rings (because she likes pink). Some of these included things she
wished for, for Easter (like pastel ankle socks), but mostly they included Easter Bible memory verses and angel quotes (she LOVES quotes).
- Ring of cardboard (empty cereal boxes work wonderfully)
- construction paper (pink and yellow)
- Empty cereal boxes or frozen dinner boxes work well.
- It doesn't matter if you go over the folds of the cardboard.
- Cut a small strip of cardboard and glue it onto the back of the ring over any folds in the cardboard.
- This will reinforce the ring.
- Cut strips of construction paper (about 1 1/2 inches by 4 inches).
- Glue the strips into rolls (like making a paper chain).
- Glue the rolls of construction paper onto the wreath. We made a pink and yellow pattern, but you can do it however you wish.
- Print out the craft template of choice.
- Color the template pieces and cut out.
- Glue the head, easter egg and two paws on top of the wreath.
- Glue the body, tail and two paws on the back of the wreath (so it looks like the bunny is peeking over the top.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
