Make a Mossy Spring Wreath.

To welcome Spring into our home, we made a Mossy Spring Wreath to hang on our front door. It has a golden bow, little spring-colored paper roses and a tiny nest with robin’s eggs inside it and we say ‘Hello Spring’ whenever we open our door!

This is what we need:
* A wreath frame
* Dried Moss (found at a craft store)
* Tacky Glue
* Sticks for spreading the glue
* Hot glue gun
* Paper flowers
* Pretty Spring-colored ribbon
* Little blue eggs (make your own using this tutorial or find some at a craft store)
* A nest (make your own from grape vine or find one at a craft store

Cover the wreath with ample glue…
Find a little boy to help you spread the glue using the sticks.
And then I’m sure he’d love to help you stick the moss to the wreath.
When you have generously covered the wreath with moss, making sure that no part of the original wreath frame shows, leave it in the sun until the glue is dry.
When it is dry, find a little girl to help you trim the straggly bits of moss so that your mossy wreath looks neat.
With your glue gun, put a blob of glue onto the moss where you want the nest to go. Stick it on fast. Use your glue gun again to gently stick the little blue robins eggs into the nest. Use your glue gun again to stick the pretty paper roses into place.

Hang your pretty Spring wreath with the ribbon, tying a lovely bow at the top and Voila! What a pretty wreath you have to welcome in the Spring!

Blessings and magic to you today!
