Home Sweet Home

I had some fun today-
I was cleaning up in the garage abit
and found this wreath form I bought at Goodwill-
These tablecloths were freebies from my mom-

A bundle of burlap leftover from another project-

I cut it into strips
Wrapped it around the frame-
Then, I wrapped the strips into circlets
some big, some small
and created
what looked like flowers-
pretty, huh?

I found this little nestie sign
 at the Christmas Tree Shop for $2.99
Paper "leaf"lets made from scrapbook paper


Attached the cute sign to the wreath-

Inside each "flower" I added a pearl

and miniature bluebird eggs

The birdie and the pearl
are the finishing touch!

As my first project of 2012-
this wreath hangs in my hallway
and brings a breath of fresh air
to Bless My Nest!

Take care, gotta fly-Claire
