Winter Wispy Wreath

Outside 05.17.15
This is my winter holiday version of my wispy wreath. I guess it just goes to show that you can repurpose these great wreaths all year! Not sure yet if I'll make one for spring, but ya never know! You can see my other versions of this wreath, the Autumn Wispy Wreath and Halloween Spooky Wispy Wreath on my Hometalk boards. Here's how this one was made.
Time: 2 Hours Difficulty: Easy
I sprayed the orange berries and the wreath with white primer. Then two coats of white spray paint and spray snow.
Place the berries and pine cone stems around circle of the wreath and add the nest. Lightly spray them and wreath again with the white spray paint, spray snow and glitter.
Add your nest, birds and small foliage. And that's it! Instant Christmas!

    I love this. My father passed away in 2012 and 'red' birds (cardinals) is our sign for him. Just beautiful, I must have one.

    Sorry to hear that Jenny, my father passed away this year and Red birds were our sign as well. I made this wreath way before not knowing how many people would respond to to it so well. Thanks for the sweet comment. Kim

    Did you purchase the wreath form, or did you make it yourself. I have looked at two shops and they don't have anything comparable to this form. I am definitely going to try to make this wreath.

    Hi Ann, I bought my natural wispy wreath at Michaels. I believe Joann Fabrics and Hobby Lobby Have them as well. Hope this helps. Kim
