Bunny Charger Wreath



I'll start with the end result and explain the rest…

When I first put the pre-made bunny wreath (Michael's) on the door it felt like it needed something more.  I had various ideas fly into my head and then I noticed these chargers at Michael's that had a wood grain look.   

I explained my idea to hubby and we hashed out how we were going to do it.  We discussed using glue but I was concerned with it holding up because this is on a door that is sandwiched in between a storm door.  So we decided to use wire to put it together with some glue.  Two holes were drilled for the wire.

The wire was cut with a longer side because of how the loop to hang this with was going to be created.

You can see up close how the wire looks that's holding it in place.

The 2nd charger was marked to drill the other holes needed and a wood wedge was glued in place to help the charger balance next to the other one..

Another wedge of wood was placed at the bottom so the bottom charger wouldn't tip towards the door.  Dabs of Gorilla Glue were used at the mid point where the two chargers overlap to help the charger stay in the same spot.

The wires were connected and an area to hang it with.  We also gave the back a quick coat of white paint  to make everything look uniform and nicer to view from the backside since you can see it through the door.

I tried to take a close-up of how it hangs on the command hook.  I wanted to leave the clear command hook in place since I also have a skinny basket that hangs here too and the hook is just the right height for it.  

So that's my Bunny Charger Wreath!
