Sweet Spring Bird Wreath

smoothfoam yarn wreath

One of my favorite things to do to get ready for spring and summer is to fix-up my yard. In the warm months, my family likes to use the backyard as an addition to our home. We eat many meals, read, and relax outside as much as we can. Creating a beautiful environment with pretty décor makes the yard a more inviting place and encourages everyone to get outside and enjoy the nice weather.

One charming way to make your backyard feel like a retreat is to hang sweet & colorful ornaments from tree branches. This mini-bird wreath will bring joy and color to your yard. It’s also a nice way to bring a touch of nature indoors or use it to decorate a special gift.

Supplies:

4″ Smoothfoam round wreath
Yarn
Decorative bird (try the dollar bins of your local craft store)
Buttons
Green felt scraps
Craft glue
Ribbon

Instructions:

1.  Wrap yarn around the Smoothfoam wreath and secure the ends to the back with glue.

2.  Cut leaves from green felt. You only need a little, so this is a great project to use up small scraps.

3.  Arrange leaves and buttons around the base of the wreath to represent flowers. Use my project photo as a guide for placement, or create a placement that is pleasing to you.

4.  Glue buttons and leaves in place. Glue the bird to sit inside the wreath.

5.  Tie a ribbon around the top of the wreath to use as a hanger.
