I started out with this and just about decided to leave it as is.
Don't get me wrong, I didn't mind this wreath at all and it definitely has the spring look I'm going for. I made it about 2 years ago but wanted to do just-a-bit-more this year.
The reason it almost stayed like this is because I wanted one of those cute little bird nests that I've seen all over blog land. But I HAVE NOT been able to find one. Anywhere. And believe me I've really looked!
So I decided to make one myself. I cut some twigs off the trees in my yard and then got out my bag of moss, a lot of hot glue, some twine, and I went to town. I also found a little bird house at Joann's for a dollar, spray painted it and used some distress ink for antiquing. (Sorry, the pictures don't show that work at all.) The eggs are rocks that look egg shaped to me and I wanted everything to have a more natural look.
And....voila! I think I did an ok job of adding some cute. :)
Getting this birdhouse onto the wreath was
$&#(*&$ frustrating! I ended up putting a small nail in the back, tied some twine to it and then wrapped it around the wreath. The hot glue I tried first was just not doing it!
I added a little more moss around the whole wreath to integrate the mossy nest a bit.
Now I'm done and I'm not touching this again.
I can't handle extra clean up like this very often, and I didn't show you the floor! :)
