A Spring Wreath Recycled

Spring Wreath: The Charm of Home
For my spring wreath this year I really wanted something green.  We have a threat of snow again this week..bah humbug..something green is going on my front door.  This fern wreath base I have used several times for spring and summer but, the beauty of it is that I can keep recycling this fern base to make many wreaths, which is what I have done again here today.

Spring Wreath: The Charm of Home
I removed the burlap bow and hanger and added some florists wire in the back to hang it by.  I then used a black and white gingham check ribbon for the bow.  I then wired in a little nest.  It looks very Mary Carol Garrity (Nell Hills) to me.  

Spring Wreath: The Charm of Home
I think I will hunt up a few little eggs to tuck inside the nest.  The promise of spring is on it's way.  I saw a little bird on our street pick up a long piece of landscaping grass and fly off with it this week.  He is industriously building a nest so, even the bird's know spring is coming.

A beautiful wreath. I learned a few years ago not to put a wreath on my screen door, but on the inside of it. A bird began to build its nest on the wreath HA! HA!

Hi Sherry-

I smiled while reading this because I recycled last year's spring wreathe today too-
and yes, it is cold here too.


I decided I am going to pretend!

I am totally smitten with ferns and this is so lovely. A few eggs would be the perfect addition.

Your local birdie is lucky to have found something for her nest. Here we still have a foot of snow. ;-/

Thanks for sharing your fab wreath at Project Inspire{d}!
