Seeking advice: how should I use these cardboard, vintage Easter decorations?

Whenever I see vintage holiday decorations at The I.D.E.A. Store, I buy them. A while back, I picked up these two vintage Easter bunnies. I realized yesterday I should probably make something from them soon, before Easter comes and goes.

I'm thinking of incorporating them into a wreath, perhaps something similar to one of the spring wreath ideas I shared earlier. It might be cute to attach one or both of the bunnies using painted clothespins, like I did with that Christmas card holder wreath I made last year.

Blog PhotoThey don't seem to have any holes in them or places to attach them from the back, so I'd like to figure out a way to use them without ripping or ruining them.

Blog PhotoI'm open to suggestions - any of you have great ideas on how I can decorate with these?

You didn't say how big they are. You know the hooks with the tape you pull to take them down? They also make stuff to hang posters and the like which comes off without damaging the paper. Depending on the size, you could also use one (?) in a basket display and the other framed by a wreath. I remember when the one with the hat was sold in stores.

They're both probably about a foot tall - a little too big to go into a basket. The sticky tack stuff idea is a good one, though! Thanks.
