Deco Mesh Bunny

Supplies:

- One Round Deco Mesh Wreath Form
- One Roll Of Deco Mesh - 25"x10 yards
- 2-3 Yards of Tinsel or pre-made ears
- One "2 Pink Pom Pom
- Three Black Chenille Stems
- One Set Of Wiggle Eyes
- Hot Glue Gun

Directions:

BASIC DECO MESH WREATH:
1. To begin, gather the end of the Deco Mesh in your hand. Beginning on the inside row of the wreath form, twist one set of ties around the Deco Mesh to secure it to the wreath.
2. Next, measure approximately 12" of Deco Mesh and gather it between your fingers and secure to the wreath using the next tie. Continue around the inner ring of the wreath form until all ties are used. Fan out the mesh as you go.
3. Without cutting the mesh, skip to the outside ring of the wreath. Continue to gather and secure the Deco Mesh around the outside ring as you did on step 2  until all the ties have been used. If you need to, you may cut off excess mesh and tuck the tail end to the inside of the wreath to hide it.

EARS:
1. To make your own bunny ears, you'll need one - 3 yard piece of tinsel. Start by folding the tinsel in half and twist it onto itself to create a thicker piece of tinsel. (repeat for second piece of tinsel)
2. Using the thicker piece of tinsel, fold it in half and shape into a bunny ear. (repeat for second piece of tinsel)
3. Next, secure the bunny ears to the top of your wreath form by twisting the ends two times around the wire form . Add a little hot glue to the tinsel and wire form for additional support. (repeat for second ear)

FACE:
1. Take the wiggle eyes and hot glue to Deco Mesh wreath in the desired position.
2. Next, use three chenille stems and twist in the center to make them look like whiskers.
3. Add hot glue to the middle of the chenille stems, and secure pom pom nose.
4. Finish by adding hot glue to the back of the nose and whiskers and adhere to Deco Mesh wreath.
5. Enjoy your new Easter bunny!
Optional: Add a bow or a hat to make your design unique!
