DIY Spring Wreath

I was inspired by all of the cute wreaths I've been seeing out there. Since everyone is getting ready for spring, the pinecones are coming down and the flowers are coming out. I'm not a huge fan of fake flowers so I decided to go with a Mossy wreath. I stole the idea to put our last name intial in the middle from Morning T's wreath which you can see here on her house tour.

I started with a grape vine wreath from Michaels, and a $4 bag of moss. I just grabbed clumps of moss and starting hot glueing them to the wreath. I filled in all the wholes until it was comlete.

You can buy the letters at Michaels, I spray painted mine black then glued it to the moss. 

I purchased a mini nest, and glued some little eggs in it, and then just stuck the blue bird right in the moss. Ta Da. Easy but a tad messy from all the dirt falling off the moss when your glueing it. Make sure you use a table cloth that can get dirty.

    and to Jenny above: i got my eggs at joann fabrics. mine are colored more crazy easter colors, but they were 50% off, so i got a whole container for $2.
