When the new Easter lines arrived in Hobbycraft this year, I spotted this unusual Bunny Wreath. Made from rattan, it was such an interesting shape, I just had to do something with it. But what......
I started by grabbing some cream yarn and wrapping it around the wreath.
Obviously one wrap wasn't going to be enough, I ended up wrapping it three times in total to try and hide as much rattan as possible.
Then I decided I would add a kind of "dream catcher" design to the centre. I threaded a needle with yarn and looped it through the wraps at equal intervals. I then went back around looping each new wrap until it all met up in the centre.
Doesn't look too bad does it? So I did the bottom hoop as well :)
Time for the ears. This time I picked a cream yarn with splodges of pinks and lilacs in it, and started to wrap.
I added the design in the ear gaps just like the large hoops.
What else did I need to finish it off, I thought. Ahh yes, a pom-pom for a fluffy tail.
Using the same cream, pink and lilac yarn, and a pom-pom maker (as we don't need to cut cardboard circles anymore) I quickly made a big fluffy pom-pom.
And that was it finished. It did take a little while to wrap the wreath form, but worth it I think.
Now little bunny is ready to catch those nasty dreams :)
