Here’s a simple spring bunny wreath craft that’s perfect for the Easter season, but also celebrates spring. Along with a bunny, flowers, and butterflies, it incorporates jelly beans, fitting for National Jelly Bean Day!
Supplies To Collect

For this sweet, floral craft project, gather the following:
- white paper plate
- cardstock in spring colors
- flower, butterfly, and circle paper punches
- white or tan cardstock
- pink pompom
- wiggly eyes
- needle and thread
- jelly beans
- glue stick
- white glue or glue gun
- thin black felt pen
Making The Spring Bunny Wreath Craft
First, cut the center from a paper plate.
Next, punch flowers, butterflies, and circles from spring-colored cardstock. Using a glue stick, adhere contrasting circle centers to some of the flowers.
Then glue butterflies and flowers around the paper plate rim.
Trace and cut a bunny head from white or tan cardstock. (A white bunny is perfect for Easter, but a grey or brown one will take the craft into spring.) Download this free template if desired.
This printable is for individual or one classroom use only.
Then draw two curved lines for the bunny mouth, and add whiskers.
Afterward, glue on the wiggly eyes and a pink pompom nose.
Lastly, adhere the paper bunny to the bottom back of the wreath using white glue or a glue gun.
Adding The Jelly Bean Necklace
For a unique crafting experience, make a colorful and tasty jelly bean necklace for the bunny:
- Pull a long piece of thread through a sturdy sewing needle.
- Thread on jelly beans in a pattern of choice, or add them randomly.
- Tie off the ends of the thread when the necklace is the desired length.
- String the necklace around the bunny’s neck.
Tip: For young children, the necklace could be prepared in advance. Or little learners could dictate which color jellybeans to thread on a necklace as you make one for them.
Making this jelly bean necklace was easier than I thought it would be. I was sure that I would poke my fingers more than once. But thankfully I didn’t!

The spring colors in the wreath are so welcome at a time of year when some days are bright and sunny, but others are grey and overcast. And I’m so ready for flowers and butterflies since we’ve had more than our share of snow this year!
