Rabbit Burrow Spring Wreath

2 Hours
Easy

I tried this year to give the main piece of my mantel and the decor around it a more natural look and make a Bunny Burrow wreath the focal point for my mantel. A Burrow is basically a hole covered in vegetation to protect the rabbits and their babies from the elements. My burrow consists of 2 wreaths the biggest one about 28 inches and the smallest one within 16. The are attached at the top with wires and covered by all kinds of vegetation and hydrangeas in blue and yellow. As in the real thing...my bunnies are cuddle inside waiting for the right time to come out and play. I'm ready for spring, my rabbits are too...how about you?

I wanted to leave some of the wreaths exposed with no foliage to represent the dirt or uncovered area surrounding the entrance of the burrow.
