$5.00 Nest Wreath

My front door was in desperate need of a fun spring wreath. I decided that it would be fun to make it a bird's nest! So I headed to the dollar store to see what I could find. All you will need are the following 5 items. First, grab a 9" round wreath. Then some loose floral moss. They also had a moss sheet. This sheet worked perfectly for the nest bottom. Then, is you don't have ribbon but some of that, and last but not least, some eggs. I will show you later in the post what kind I ended up finding at the dollar store that work great. First step is to cut your ribbon and sting it around the wreath. Then get the moss sheet and lay in down on top of the wreath, Gently press it down into the wreath and trim the edges. Hot glue it down on the wreath.
Next take the loose moss and start to glue it around the outside of the wreath.
Keep gluing all the way around the top and sides until it is all covered.
Looking great!
Now for the eggs. I thought these little malted candy eggs were perfect! Only a dollar for the pack, and they are the perfect size and color! I just hot glued them down in the center right onto the moss.
And there you have it, the perfect Spring wreath for only $5.00!

  2. I love it, too. I was thinking about maybe putting plastic Easter eggs, and it would be the perfect Easter wreath. :)
