A Spring Wreath

I made a wreath last fall (pictured below), and I wanted to recycle it for spring.  I liked the simplicity of it.  So, I just took the pumpkin off of it and pinned a spring nest in it's place.

Looking at these pictures I realized the Spanish moss faded.  I have no idea why. 

All of this moss reminds me of the way a nest really looks when a bird assembles it.    Spring is almost here.  Are you enjoying the extra day of daylight tonight?  I celebrated for spring last week by going to the Dollar Store and buying myself a new pair of sunglasses!

What a cute idea putting the nest on the wreath. Now I know what to do with my nest.

That little wreath is so sweet!

My front door faces south, and I can't keep a Christmas wreath green. Within 2 weeks, it starts turning brown. And that's in Minnesota!

Hi Sherry,
What a darling wreath you made. I like how it faded, it seems to go so well with the cute bird nest. I'm going to try making one like it. Thanks for sharing.

I love your wreath with the little birds nest. I like the way you used burlap for the bow, very rustic and out-doorsy! I think I actually like the wreath better faded!

How did you attach the moss to the wreath?

Sherry said...

Cwillis,
I used the hot glue gun to attach the moss to the wreath.

Beautiful! fyi the spanish moss faded because it was alive before - you can actually keep it alive by spritzing it, if you picked it alive.
