If you are just diving into the world of making home decor, like this DIY Easter wreath, with your Cricut - then this project is great for beginners. There is no right or wrong way to make it and you can customize it to your liking. I put this DIY Easter Wreath together in under 30 minutes! Let's get crafting!

To download my free SVG files please make sure to follow the instructions found here for desktop and here for iPad. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me and I will help you with the downloads. There is also a YouTube tutorial that you can watch to help walk you through the process of downloading all of my free SVG files.
All of the SVG files for the DIY Easter Wreath are completely free to download and use commercially. You can find the Easter bunny SVG and Easter egg SVGs here and the rolled rose here, and leaves here. For the frame I used the Holly SVG found here and deleted the berries and leaves! I also have additional free paper flower SVG files under my community SVG files - please sign up for my newsletter to receive the password and start creating!
Once you have uploaded all of the free SVG files into Cricut Design Space and onto your canvas, start by deleting the berries and leaves from the Holly frame, then resize. My paper maxes out at 12x12 but you can scale this to whatever you would like. The max Cricut allows on a 12x12 mat is 11.5 x 11.5 inches, make sure the height is 11.5 (which I missed at first).
Then we can ungroup our easter eggs and resize. Again, this will depend on how big you made your frame so just scale accordingly and make all of the eggs the same size. There is no right or wrong way to do this. Same with the bunny SVG file!
Finally, I duplicated my leaves, I made about 16 to make sure I really filled up that DIY Easter wreath and then for the rolled roses I made them 5.5 inches high and I did this too fit four per 12 x 12 piece of paper however, you can make them bigger. The ened result at this size is about a 1-2 inch rose (so not huge)!
You can use the color sync option over on the side panel to adjust colors and give you less mats and also personalize this DIY Easter wreath! As for cutting, I like to cut everything on the medium cardstock setting on fast mode.
I started with my rolled roses and I will be the first to admit these take practice (which I still need) and patience. The design of my free rolled rose SVG file is supposed to be a little more realistic looking and you need to be patient when folding down the petals.
I like to use a quilling tool but you can also just use your fingers to roll the flowers or tweezers. You start from the end (not the center) and roll relatively tightly trying to keep the bottom even. Then at the end I add glue (craft or hot glue will work) to the center piece and stick it to the bottom rolled up part. Now, a few tips: let it uncurl a little to the size of the center piece and try to get the petals to not overlap perfectly if you can. After you have them glue down, i use my fingers to go around and peel/fold down the petals so it looks more like a rose.
For my leaves, I just gave these a slight bend in the middle but you can also color them with alcohol inks or even use a bone tone to give some lines.
I assembled my layered eggs with my craft glue and for some reason, somewhere along the way I lost some layers (CLASSIC). So I added on my rhinestones just for a little bling. Then i attached my bunny tail with a little glue.
If you cut your fame from paper, now is the time to layer and make sure it's pretty solid - no one wants a wobbly wreath. I suggest making all the pieces first before you start assembling, this way you can place everything and visualize the final project.
Once I had everything placed where I wanted it, I used my hot glue to attach everything. I started with the bunny, then the eggs. I placed the roses next and then finished off by tucking in the leaves then gluing them down. The leaves are fillers so you can use as many or as few as you choose.
BAM! You've made a DIY Easter Wreath with your Cricut, Silhouette, or any cutting machine!
