easter to spring transitional wreath

Easter to Spring Transitional Wreath
Step 1
ADULT: Cut the individual tulip stems off each bush with floral wire cutters. 
Step 2
ADULT: Poke the stem of the tulips into the grapevine wreath base.
 
TIP: If needed, reinforce with hot glue. Fill the wreath with tulips, except for a small area at the bottom.
Step 3
To make the Easter Bunny, draw a cute face with the black marker onto a large decorative egg. 
Step 4
Paint an oval with Pink Bliss acrylic paint for the bunny's tummy. Let dry. 
Step 5
Make an approximately 2½" loop at the end of 2 pink chenille pipe cleaners. Twist together. 
Step 6
ADULT: Hot glue the 2 chenille pipe cleaners next to each other, down the center back of the bunny.
 
TIP: The ears should show above the egg, and the stems should hang out below the bottom of the egg.
Step 7
ADULT: Hot glue the two pom-poms in place as the bunny's feet. 
Step 8
Cut the chenille pipe cleaners to about 3" long below the bunny, and twist them together. 
Step 9
ADULT: Use the chenille pipe cleaners to poke into the grapevine wreath in the area at the bottom of the wreath you've left blank. 
Step 10
To make the transition into spring, change out the Easter Bunny and add a butterfly. To make the butterfly, first paint a small decorative egg black. Let dry. 
Step 11
Use a pencil and curl the end of a black chenille pipe cleaner around it to create a loop. Do the same with a second black chenille pipe cleaner. 
Step 12
ADULT: Glue the chenille pipe cleaners down the center of the egg, leaving about 2" above the egg and the rest below the egg. 
Step 13
Cut the chenille pipe cleaners to about 3" long below the egg and twist them together. 
Step 14
Glue the wiggle eyes in place and draw a smile with the white paint pen. 
Step 15

Step 16
Trace the butterfly's wings on the back of a piece of yellow foam. Trace the decorative wing pieces on the back of the pink and orange foam. Cut out all of the pieces. 
Step 17
Remove the backing from the pink and orange pieces and glue them in place on the yellow butterfly wings. Fold the wings in half horizontally to create a crease where the butterfly body will sit. 
Step 18
ADULT: Hot glue the butterfly body to the wings. 
Step 19
ADULT: Use the chenille pipe cleaners to poke into the grapevine wreath in the area at the bottom of the wreath, to replace the bunny.
