DIY Easter wreath makeover (from this to that)
New ideas for something to hang on your door
I always look for new ideas for something to hang on our door. While I don’t typically head to the dollar store I am known to hit up Michael’s on a semi-regular basis.
I was in the market for something entirely different when I saw this sweet bunny grapevine wreath. It had a few plastic easter eggs on it which I thought I could use for my easter egg topiary tree. But how could I embellish this wreath easily and make it, well, better?
Typically I prefer to make my own wreaths or restyle ones I already have. It is always best to shop your home for old things you can make new.
Here is what I did.
DIY Easter Wreath makeover 101
In my mind, there is pretty much nothing that can’t be solved with hot glue. It’s a great way to take a wire wreath form, a dollar tree wreath, or any floral wreath or craft and up the ante!
How do you jazz up a store-bought wreath?
Supplies you will need
- store-bought wreath with minimal decorations or any wreath you have that needs a refresh
- glue gun
- wire clippers
- 2 bunches of tulips (any color)
- 1 bunch of forsythia stems
- 1 bunch of Hyacinth flowers
- roll of pink mess ribbon
Start by clipping the heads of the flowers off of the stems.
On several of the stems, I left the faux leaves attached to fill in the spots with greenery.
Cut the flower tops down on the tulips to a smaller size, then use a glue gun to attach them to the easter bunny wreath, working your way around.
Tying the ribbon was super simple since I used a piece of floral wire. Twisting it around was the easy way to have it attached.
Since this was going to hang on my front porch, I didn’t need to worry about the back of the wreath.
Once I arranged the flowers where I wanted them, I added a mesh pink bow to my simple easter wreath.
DIY Easter Wreath Ideas
- The first thing that came to mind is to light it up. That’s right. Adding a battery pack of twinkly lights always seems to ‘brighten’ up everything. I prefer fairy lights since they are so delicate.
- Have you ever noticed? Don’t DIY Easter wreaths tend to be fuller than craft store wreaths? They are in my house anyway. I love to add lots of greenery to jazz it up.
- Embellish your wreath with pom poms, bunny ears, or colorful eggs
- Do you like simple wreaths? Paper flowers or a wooden wreath frame can be made or purchased at a craft supplies store.
- A little bit of burlap ribbon goes a long way.
- Want the frame of the store bought wreath but not the flowers on it? Take the whole thing apart and start with just the base.
- How about attaching paper egg cartons with faux colorful eggs glued into it? Spray paint works wonders and would be a great idea to give your carton some color.

How do you make a cheap wreath look expensive?
The perfect way to make your cheaper wreath look like it came out of an exclusive shop is by adding fabulous faux flowers. Not just any flowers, but really realistic-looking stems. Higher-priced faux flowers are definitely worth the extra money. They last for years and may be reused in another DIY project or simply placed in a ginger jar or special vase.

Hey there, honey! I’m so excited to tell you about my latest obsession: buckwheat honey! I know it might sound a little strange, but I’m telling you, this stuff is amazing. It’s got this rich, dark flavor that’s unlike any traditional honey I’ve ever tasted. And not only is it delicious, but it’s also packed with health benefits.
