In my never-ending quest to renew and refresh what I already have, I’ve updated my DIY Easter bunny nest. This bunny nest concept first appeared on the blog back in 2013, and with each new version, I’ve loved it more. It’s been a few years since it appeared in my spring decor, so I felt it was high time to bring it back!

Use What You Have

This is one of those quick projects where you can and should use what you have on hand. Gather together your favorite bowl, basket, or tray, and any small spring accessories you have in your stash. Any kind of bunny and greenery can be used.

Easter Bunny Nest Assembly

1.) Begin with a bowl, basket, or tray.
2.) Add a riser of some sort, in the middle, so the bunny sticks up and out of the nest. I used a clear glass container turned upside-down.
3.) If desired, cover the riser with Spanish moss. Since my riser was clear, I opted to skip this step.

4.) Between the riser and the edge of the bowl, basket, or tray, tuck in whatever kind of greenery you have on hand. I used my favorite eucalyptus garland. (You may need to trim your garland to fit around the bunny.)
5.) Place your bunny in the center of the nest, on top of the riser. (Get the whimsical bunny with carrot, or a real-life bunny.)
6.) Add carrot bunches, green berries, blueberries, faux eggs, or spring faux flowers.
