Spring Nest

With Sunday being the first day of spring I was in the mood for some spring crafting!

I had a whole bunch of small wreaths that I got for free at our local ReStore and I wanted to make them into something.

This is what I came up with!

If you want to make one you will need, A small wreath (I think mine is made from a grapevine)

Dried Spanish moss

Thin cardboard

Mod Podge glue

Acrylic paint

Glue gun

Paint brush

And scissors

Step 1:  Cut out of the cardboard a circle slightly smaller than your wreath.

Step 2:  With your acrylic paint, paint the top of the cardboard circle and brush some onto your wreath.  I used a colour that was close to the Spanish moss.

Step 3:  On the back of the wreath, hot glue enough glue on so that it will stick to the cardboard circle.

Step 4:  Glue the painted side of the cardboard to the wreath.

Step 5:  Using a paint brush and Mod Podge glue paste your desired amount of Spanish moss on.  Allow to dry.

And there you have it!  A very simple yet beautiful nest to add some spring to your home!

On Friday I will share how I made the clay eggs!

  1. That’s so cute – I love little nests and with this one you could make it just the size you need for the number and size of eggs you have. Great idea.
