Spring is here and Easter is on its way! Is your home decorated for spring yet? This time of year I see moss-covered crafts are popular for spring decorating. I was on the hunt to make something with moss for my front door for Easter.
I was scoping out the spring section of Dollar Tree store when I spotted this coconut liner in the spring plant section. I instantly thought what a great alternative to moss and what a perfect color for a natural looking bunny craft. It turned out to be the perfect material for a spring door hanger. Here is how I made this easy Easter bunny wreath.
Sweet Bunny Wreath Made with Coconut Liners
- 3 Coco Plant Liners
- 2 Styrofoam Wreaths, 10 inch & 7.8 inch
- Pink Burlap Ribbon
- Hot Glue & Gun
- Various Spring Stems
- Sharp Scissors
- Straight Pins
- 2 Wood Skewers or Toothpicks
- 1 Clover 4.5 inch Jumbo Pom Pom Maker
- Spinrite Patons Cobbles Yarn: Winter White
Small foam circle shown above not used.
Gently pull and stretch the molded coco liner to make it lay as flat as possible.
Place one of your wreaths in the center of the liner and trim the liner to fit over the edges for the size of your wreath.
Cut triangle slits out of the liner every 4 inches going around the outside of the foam wreath.
Hot glue the liner to the wreath. Glue slowly around the wreath allowing the glue to thoroughly dry before going on to the next section. I used straight pins to hold the liner in place and snug to the foam while the glue dried. Repeat with the other wreath.
Glue the two wreaths together and to stabilize them, place two skewers or toothpicks pushed through both wreaths. Add glue to the picks and between the liners. Let it dry.
Pull and stretch the third coco liner out flat. Cut the liner in half with sharp scissors. Take one-half of the liner, leaving the straight cut side alone and cut a rounded outer ear side out of the liner. Using this ear as a guide, lay it on top of the other half of the liner and cut an exact copy of the ear out. Trim the rears down to suit your wreath size. Hot glue them to the back and top of the smaller wreath.
Add a strip of pink burlap ribbon and tie in a bow. Add a few spring picks and hot glue them to the back of the bow.
Now you can easily buy a pom pom for the tail or simply leave it off. I wanted a big fluffy tail, so I used my Jumbo Clover 4.5 inch Pom Maker to make one.
NOTE: See my detailed instructions on how to use the Clover Pom Pom Maker post.
Hot glue the tail on the bottom of the large wreath. Add a hanger on the back by gluing a small piece of twine or yarn between the ears and that’s it!
He’s so fun and I really liked working with the coco liner. It is so easy to mold and stretches into and around objects. I am totally going to use it from now on as an alternative to moss.
What would you cover with coco liner? I’d love to know what your ideas would be!

I know this is several years old but I’m just seeing this for the first time and loving it!! I think I’d have to make a basket or 2 to match out of the coco liners too! Of course for an indoor decoration. The nice thing about all the products you used is that they are all outdoor materials so they will survive the weather too! Would t this be cute with a mama poppa and a couple of babies? OMG my wheels are spinning! Happy upcoming Easter!!🐰👯♀️👯👯♂️🐰
Thanks so much Shirley! I am glad you liked my bunny it was one of my favorite projects. Sadly it did not get much traction, but I just love it. It is made of out materials but I used hot glue to adhere it together and in hot climates it may melt if it is hung outside. You can use Gorilla hot glue though, it is weather resistant and works great for outdoor projects. Also, check out my Yarn Snowman door hanger. He is very similar to the bunny.
Where did you find these size styrofoam wreaths? I’m so disappointed. I bought very everything I need but can’t find the wreaths anywhere.
I got the large green one and the other foam green smaller wreath is a dry foam wreath, that I got at the dollar store. I provided a link in the supply list for the 7.8 wreath and I added one for the other wreath. A 10-inch wreath will work instead of 9.8 inch.
I love your bunny. This such an adorable bunny for your door and so easy to make. You are so creative! #merrymonday

Wow I never would have thought about using those liners to make a wreath. Great idea and I love how it turned out!!
I see the florist in you with this craft. So smart to use coco plant liners. You have me thinking of all the things I can make with this now.
Such a unique Easter craft! I know those moss covered crafts are so popular and I love them too but your coco liner bunny is awesome! I always enjoy blog hops because it’s the best place to find new ideas.
Omgosh, that it so smart! I would have never thought to use liners in such a way! Your bunny turned out fantastic! Love it
