DIY Easter Bunny Nest | Signs of Spring

There’s a saying that goes something like “everything old is new again.” Not sure who said it, but I agree. One of the best ways to decorate for the seasons is to repurpose and reuse things you already have. That’s exactly what I’ve done with this Easter bunny nest. This bunny has appeared on the blog before…but more on that later. For now he’s nestled in a brand new nest of boxwood and forsythia. It was super easy to do and took just a few minutes.

  1. Start with a large bowl and some sort of container to use as a riser.
  2. Place a greenery garland around the riser.
  3. Add small forsythia blossoms by just sticking them in the greenery. Tip: I bought one big bunch of forsythia and cut it apart.
  4. Place the bunny on the riser. Cover the riser with extra pieces of greenery if it shows.

I tried to find some shopping sources in case you want to make a DIY Easter Bunny Nest of your own. I wasn’t able to get exact matches, but I think I came pretty close. The boxwood garland I used is the exact one linked to below. I have been using it in my seasonal decor since fall!

  20. This is very festive. I have everything but a bunny! I may have to see what I can do about that????Thank you for this inspiration!

  21. Ann, I’m loving your spring and bunny décor. Spring is my favorite time of year. My lilies are blooming a little early this year and now some irises are opening. I shopped at Michael’s and found some adorable spring decorations. I purchased a precious jack rabbit and set him inside of my lantern with some Easter grass and decorated the top with some darling multicolor tulips and ribbon. Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas and inspiring me to take something old and making it new again. Have a wonderful day and I’m looking forward to your next email.

  25. Jeannie C says:

    I followed your blog last year and made my first bunny nest! It came back out this week with a few new twists—like your inspiration!

    In case someone is looking for a bunny but needs a budget friendly one, check
    Hobby Lobby they have them again this year. I think the large ones were about $18….. and you can use a 40% coupon.

  26. I agree; using our same old favorites in a new setting gives a whole new look. I am a bunny lover, not only at Easter, but year round! This year I’m putting together a ‘new’ centerpiece with an ‘old’ bird cage and an ‘old’ bunny! Sounds like a good Sunday afternoon project, don’t you think?? Thanks for sharing your adorable Spring idea.

  27. I love your decorating ideas for various seasons and holidays. I especially love Easter and spring decor because I love both bunnies and flowers. And after one seriously weird winter here in Ohio, I’m super ready for spring.

  28. Classic! I always love when this bunny appears. You always make it look easy and fun. Great directions. I too repurpose decorations as I never do the same thing twice. I love shopping my home. I come up with the most interesting merchandise;-)

  29. Love bunnies and nests…starting to do spring in the house so love your ideas.

  30. I love the pairing of the pale, blue, speckled eggs with the yellow forsythia. It’s a great combination.

  31. I love bunnies, boxwood and forsythia! This is really cute and I love the tip to make a garland a wreath so easily for the table – love it!

  32. I am always repurposing things in my home especially with spray
    paint.Your bunny is adorable and so easy to create.Perfect touch
    of spring.
