Spring Willow Wreath made from Dollar Store items
* One 10 inch wicker wreath
* One bag floral moss
* Seven (or more) willow flower stems
* Floral Wire cutters
* Bird nest (mine came from my maple tree)
* Two Birds
* Small Eggs
Glue gun and glue sticks
I opted to spray paint my wicker wreath
a green color, to tone down the tan.
* Eggs are ceramic, with one coat clear sealant, and
spray painted in Miracal Brown from Dollar General.
I love birdhouses... what else can I say?
With wreath on newspaper, put glue over small
sections of the wreath and press on the floral moss.
Clip off stems of willow from the main stem
and glue into wreath, in your desired position,
trying to keep it in a "swirl."
Wow, I didn't realize how STICKY and Prickly
those things are to work with!
Seven stems of willow was obviously not enough,
but it was all the store had left.
Position the nest, eggs and birds; glue in place.
The idea for the candles set inside jars with split peas
came from Two Twenty One.
And the "chocolate" eggs, and bunny, ideas came from
The eggs rest on my antique Homer Laughlin
Virginia Rose patterned Platter.
Hope Y'all have a Good Weekend!
