Copy Cat Spring Wreath
Inspired by this moss wreath at Frou Frou Gal I created my own. I first saw her wreath on Saturday and set this evening aside to make it. That's a remarkably fast turnaround for me!
To make this wreath I started with a cheap plastic picture frame, a bag of moss and a moss sheet from the Dollar Tree. I also used some Model Magic clay for the eggs. I picked that up a few years ago from the 99 Cent Only store and have used it here and there for a long time. The mini grapevine wreath is from my stash. I
Here it is with the moss sheet glued on. Ignore the big eggs, they are for another project.
From here I glued on bunches of moss to add volume. I also added some sticks and the nest. I made the eggs out of that air dry clay. I painted them and glued them right on. I added some newspaper scraps to give it the collected look of a real bird's nest. I hope to add some feathers if I remember to get some. This is the kind of project I'll be tweeking here and there for a while.
My cost for this wreath was $4.
Moss Sheet $1
Bagged moss $1
Clay, paint, sticks, hotglue are all from my stash.
