1.
Let's first start with the leaves.  Get a bunch of vines with the large leaves.  Pull long vines off and wrap in between the branches on wreath.  You may need to use glue in certain places to keep vines/leaves in place.  I also took single leaves and glued them in empty spaces for a more full look.




2.
Moss time.  Make sure your gloves are on.  Take small pieces out of the bag at a time (this stuff is kinda messy).  Nestle in between leaves and branches.  Glue small portions at a time onto wreath.



3.
Continue placing vines, leaves and moss on certain places of wreath. Do not overdue.  Make sure it is full but not too busy.

4.
Spruce up the birds nest.  Remember little birdies put this together ;)  The nest I bought from Save-on-Crafts was just a basic twig nest with three robin eggs.


 Take the eggs out of nest and glue small pieces of moss and leaves around sides.



5.
Glue eggs onto nest.

6.
Securing your nest onto wreath.  Along with glueing your nest to wreath, you will also need to secure with thread, twist ties, etc.  I used brown thread to blend with wreath.  Use thread to go through nest and tie around branches of wreath.



7.
Once nest is on wreath, place more moss and leaves around nest.  Secure with hot glue.

8.
Hang up your Spring wreath and enjoy!

  8. I love this! It's easy and sooooo pretty! Yes, I adore the Nester. =) Her style is really inspiring.

    My mom had to sew the dark brown stripes on one by one. She's the best! They're spaced about 6 inches apart. The fabric is broadcloth from HL. (40% off!!!!)

    Thanks for the comment! =)
