DIY Easter Bunny Nest | Elements include dried grass, carrot bunches, colored eggs and of course a bunny! All items can be found at craft stores.
In my never-ending quest to renew and refresh what I already have, I’ve updated my DIY Easter Bunny Nest yet once again. My Nesting Bunny How-To from a few years ago features the same wood bunny figurine.
This year for my DIY Easter Bunny Nest, I used one of my favorite pieces of ironstone, a large bowl from Pottery Barn. This bowl moves around my house and fits in absolutely anywhere. I placed it on my little yellow table and built the nest from the bottom up.
1.) Begin with a bowl, basket or tray.
2.) Add a riser of some sort so the bunny sticks out of the nest. I used a plastic container turned upside-down.
3.) Cover the riser with dried grass.
4.) Around the edge of the bowl, lay bunches of silk or dried flowers. Anything will work for this. Just use what you have.
5.) Place your bunny in the center of the nest.
6.) Add some carrot bunches (available at Pier 1) for a pop of color.
7.) Add some colorful Easter eggs.
For my original nest, I added a little heart charm on a piece of twine to the bunny’s neck. It’s still there and still very cute.
To show you a few different ways to do this, I played around a bit and came up with a couple of options. First is using a bunny that is a little more natural looking. This one is from Pier 1 and you saw it the other day in my spring lantern.
Second is adding a grapevine cloche to the nest with the tall bunny. It adds a natural element to the sort of unnatural wood bunny.
(Her little necklace is turned around…oh well!)
