How to Make an Easter Wreath
Whether you’re an experienced crafter looking for something special to add to your home decor or need something simple and quick, this wreath is sure to make the perfect addition to your seasonal celebrations. Not only does it require minimal supplies, but it’s also budget-friendly so you can easily get into the springtime spirit without breaking the bank. So grab your bunny cake pan, glue gun, and some ribbon – let’s get crafting!
Patina Bunny Cake Pan Instructions:
Apply the first coat of Metal Effects Primer by Modern Masters. Apply with a sponge applicator in thin, light strokes to cover the entire bunny cake pan. Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes.
Apply a second coat of Primer. This time allow for a generous layer to fill in any missing areas of the first layer. Allow to dry for at least 30 more minutes.
Using a new sponge brush, apply a first coat of the special oxidizing bronze paint. This is where the aluminum vintage bunny cake pan turns into a more high-end metal-looking easter decoration. Allow cake pan to dry for another 30 minutes.
For the final coat of bronze paint, apply in small sections at a time.
After applying a few strokes of paint, spritz the blue patina aging solution over the wet paint area.
Get creative and experiment by varying the sprays of the aging solution from a light, airy spray at a distance to a closer more concentrated spray that leaves pretty drip marks behind.
This is where the magic happens. As the patina aging solution dries, it will begin to change the bronze paint into an aged patina!
Easter Wreath Assembly Instructions:
Hot Glue a styrofoam block to the inside of one half of the bunny cake pan.
Then hot glue a zip tie to the block.
Attach the English Ivy or greenery garland around the metal wreath frame using zip ties and then attach your new bronze patina Easter Bunny cake pan in the center of the wreath. (I also added a metal basket to the center of my wreath.)
Add a coordinating ribbon to hang the wreath on your front door.
So transformative and amazing!
