A Springtime wreath

Spring is only days away and I am ready to say sayonara to Winter!  To welcome my favorite season, I have whipped up a fancy new Springtime wreath for my living room.

My inspiration came from Karin Lidbeck-Brent and a bird’s nest wreath she designed in a basket:


I thought that was pretty cute and innovative, so I set out to create my own.  Since I didn’t have a cute basket and I did have a spare grapevine wreath I used that for my base.  A quick trip to Michael’s yielded a spray of pussy willow and a cute little bird.  Combined with some moss from my stash and a bird’s nest (thanks nature!) I was able to assemble the whole thing for less than $10!

Here is my version:


The tiny nest is filled with little blue eggs.  The blue bird is made from natural fibers and has a twig “feathered” tail!  I put a little branch across the bottom of the wreath so she would have somewhere to perch.


I thought the top was feeling a little empty and since I didn’t have any fun ribbon for a bow, I added this tiny banner welcoming Spring!



I accented mine with forsythia and hydrangea to complement the decor in the living room.  I think it turned out pretty cute! 


Happy Spring!

I’ll be back soon with more seasonal updates in the yard and the house! :)  Stay tuned!
