Springtime is the time for bunnies & flowers. Okay, every day is the time for bunnies & flowers, but during springtime – they’re essential.z
My front door was looking a little empty, and that needed to be fixed ASAP. I love decorating for the season so I knew I needed something that screamed SPRING!
And the succulent & rose bunny wreath was born. Amen.
This wreath is made up of a few different parts – the base, the roses, the succulents, the bunny, and the lettering. You can go as far as embellishing your wreath just like I have, or stop at any point along the way when you feel your wreath is full enough.
As far as the wreath base goes – it’s very similar to my One Skein Wreath Base – just a bit longer to fit a larger wreath form. So if you have any confusion on the wreath base portion of the pattern, see that pattern for more photos on it all coming together!
Also see the crochet rose and succulent videos on their respective patterns linked above & below in the pattern. They’ll help ya a lot!

With white Ch 21, Sc in 2nd and across, Ch 1, turn (20)
Rows 2-176: Sc in each across, Ch 1, turn (20)
Color change alternating black and white every 8 rows. (Pro Tip: Carry your yarn up the side of the work when you change colors so that there aren’t as many ends to weave!)
Finish off leaving a long tail (about 3 feet). With a tapestry needle, sew Row 176 to Row 1 to form a loop.
Wrap the base around the wreath form and whip stitch the 2 raw edges together still using your long tail. Make sure that the stripes match up with one another as you go around. Weave ends.
With white yarn, sl st into the center of Row 16, Ch 20, sl st into the center of Row 8, finish off & weave ends. Hang wreath by this strip.

With a tapestry needle, sew to the wreath base positioned as pictured or as you prefer. Weave ends.
With sharp scissors, cut a bunny shape from the cardboard. Mine is about 6″ tall and 3″ wide. Try your best to get it symmetrical.
With a hot glue gun to secure, wrap the bunny with sky blue yarn from top to bottom.
Make a 1″ wide white pom pom, snip the tails, and hot glue it to the blue bunny.
Hot glue the blue bunny to the wreath positioned behind some flowers.
With a hot glue gun to secure, wrap the wood letters with rose shocking yarn from top to bottom.
