DIY Easter Bunny Nest

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. I’ve had this wooden bunny for years and it appears each spring somewhere in my decor.

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.

I added a little heart charm on a piece of twine to the bunny’s neck for a very cute finishing touch.

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.

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. I found the grapevine cloche at a local shop and have never seen another one anyplace else. Any sort of cloche would work so if you like this look, just experiment!

    Hi Ann,
    You are so TALENTED !!! Love all your Bunny Nests. However, the
    one I was wanting to copy, is the one Sitting on the two Grapevine
    Wreaths… Do you have any idea of the name of the Greenery
    that was used? I Love the pale green color and little buds for the
    Spring Bunny Tablescape. Everything you do is Beautiful!!

  12. Jane @ Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    Oh my, Ann! I had dubbed you “Queen of Wreaths” but now you’re “Queen of Nests, too!” I love each variation. I am almost finished with my inside decorating, but I’ve yet to do the porch. I was planning to do ti today, but it was too cold and windy here today! Will spring ever get here?

  13. Jeanette Duke says:

    Ann, I just love what you have done with your bunny! I copied your bunny in the wreath last year and had it on my coffee table. This year I put it on the island in the kitchen. He just hops around all over! Lol!! Spring decorating is so refreshing.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I love that you are moving your accessories around. Moving things from room to room is the easiest way to refresh things. Thanks!

  14. This is adorable, as is all of your ideas. You are such an inspiration — I just placed an order at Pier1 for the carrots and the bunny!! I’ll share a photo of mine when I do it up. Thanks for the idea.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Yay dj!!! Happy Spring!

  15. Ann! I am dying for that white rabbit! I’m guessing you made that, if not please tell me where I can find one! Shari

      1. Ann Drake says:

        Yes Shari the white wood bunny came from Hobby Lobby. I haven’t been there for a few weeks but the last time I visited they still had some!

  16. Cute, cute, cute!! I love the grapevine cloche especially. I have to go to Pier 1 this week so I will look for the carrots. Thanks!

    So very, very cute Ann…I love the bunny’s necklace….and where did you get that wonderful grapevine cloche….I just love the natural looking bunnies too…they are perfect in the lantern also! I adore your yellow and white decor!!!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Shirley! The grapevine cloche came from a farmer’s market a few years ago. Honestly, it is the only one I have ever seen. I googled it but came up with nothing. If I ever see one I will be sure to let you know. Have a good week!

  20. Beautiful…love all of the ways you used your bunnies

  21. Love it! Hobby Lobby has been getting a lot of my money lately. They should pay you commission.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Haha Carolyn…wouldn’t that be nice? Thanks for visiting and have a good week!

  22. Karen Caraccilo says:

    I have the same bunny and bought those cute little carrots today at pier 1! Love it and will try it! On a side note – what is that gorgeous yellow pattern in the back ground ? Chair and pillows – just beautiful!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Karen! The print on the chairs is called Aviary by Thomas Paul. I actually got the chairs at They have an incredible collection of slipper chairs that are extremely affordable. Thanks for stopping by!

  23. Natasha In Oz says:

    What a fun idea. I am definitely going to try this for sure-I love it, Ann!

    Best wishes for a lovely week,
    Natasha in Oz

  24. So lovely Ann, love all the options. Tuesday Morning has some of the carrot bunches also. They have these larger twig type carrots that I thought were unique but I wasn’t sure how to use them. I’m sure you could find a way. Love all your ideas. Have a great week.

  25. Nana Diana says:

    I don’t think my comment went through before…arrrgh. I said I loved your sweet little bunny in a bowl. That is a really cute idea as are the other ideas you have, too. Happy Sunday to you- xo Diana

  26. Ann, this is so cute!! I’m going to try to find a bunny at Hob Lob. :)

  27. That is such a cute Easter arrangement. I love how you added carrots around the grass. Seems like we have to wait a while this year for Easter to get here!

  28. Ann, I have the cute bunny from Hobby Lobby on my shopping list. Thanks for sharing. Your bunny nests are adorable. Love the yellow in your living room.

  29. Yvonne @ StoneGable says:

    Ann, This is so adorable! I can’t wait to make one for myself! LOVE IT!
