How To Make A DIY Tobacco Basket Spring Wreath

Make a gorgeous tobacco basket spring wreath that makes a perfect Easter or spring door hanger.

Doesn’t this tobacco basket spring wreath make you think of Peter Rabbit? I absolutely loved the books when I was a kid, and reading them to my own children.

I shared how I made this adorable Easter wreath on a facebook live last week as part of a Spring Decor Door Challenge, and I promised I would share a written tutorial on the blog.

Wreath making is my most favorite craft. If you enjoy it as well, check out all of my wreaths here. When I was planning what type of spring wreath to make for the challenge, I knew I wanted something different.

While I love a good grapevine wreath, sometimes it’s fun to mix it up. The moment I saw this adorable little straw bunny at the craft store, inspiration struck!

Plus, I already had this tobacco basket in my craft room that I knew would be perfect for this spring wreath. This tobacco basket is metal, instead of the normal basket material.

I do think the basket style would look great as well. In fact, I made a winter tobacco basket wreath here.

Supplies Needed For A Tobacco Basket Wreath

Instructions For Tobacco Basket Spring Wreath

  • Hot glue the foam block to the bottom center of the wreath.
  • Secure the straw bunny to the top of the foam block with hot glue, or floral wire.
  • Begin attaching spring florals into the foam block. Continue adding the flowers until the tobacco basket is covered in an L-shape. You can add more if you like, but I wanted the basket to show.
  • Add the larger fabric carrots to the top of the wreath using hot glue.
  • Attach the smaller carrots throughout the wreath also with hot glue.

How To Make A Wreath Bow

Once the wreath is decorated, it’s time to add a pretty bow. The pink gingham ribbon is perfect for spring.

Start by folding the ribbon in equal lengths for each loop that you want. I normally do 8 for a wreath this size. Be sure to leave a long enough tail.

Hold the ribbon together at the bottom of each loop and use floral wire, or a pipe cleaner to tie a knot around the base of the bow and tighten until it is secure.

You can add the bow to the wreath with the floral wire. I chose to add it to the left side of the wreath, but it is totally up to you.

Now it’s just a matter of hanging the wreath up indoors or out. Here it is on my front door:

It also looks great in and entryway, or over a mantel. Wherever you want to add a little spring cheer!
