Burlap Easter Spring Wreath with Nest and Eggs

I was so inspired last week by the burlap wreaths that Sharon
from Elizabeth & Co. created that I had to make one!
Sharon has been nicknamed "The Queen of Wreaths"
and if you check out her blog you will see why.
I just happened to see her Spring wreath post a few hours before I was heading to Michaels.
Talk about perfect timing!

I picked up a 16" wire wreath form, two 10 yard rolls of burlap ribbon and a mixture of faux flowers.
I already had floral wire, hot glue and a nest and eggs in my craft stash.

Did I mention - everything I needed was on sale!!!!

I followed Sharons instructions on how to create the burlap wreath.
Like I said, I used a 16" wire wreath form.
I made four loops of burlap on each row, in each section.
This gave it a full look, which I like.
It took just over 15 yards of the burlap ribbon.
Once the basic burlap part was complete,
 I arranged the flowers in two separate groupings and
wired the stems together.
Next, I wired the grouping to the right of the nest to the wreath form first.
Then I wired the grouping on the left of the nest to the wreath form.
Lastly, I wired the nest onto the wreath form, over top of the stems of the flowers,
then hot glued the moss and eggs to the nest.

I'm hooked.
I love how it turned out and I plan to make many more.
This one is for sale in my Etsy shop and I'm sure I'll be listing more wreaths soon.
I will be participating in my first open market this Spring.
It is local to my home in Landrum, SC.
I'm super excited about setting up a booth and
 I think a variety of these wreaths will be a nice addition to that sale.
What do you think?

Any advice on setting up a booth at an outdoor Spring market?
Thank you so much for stopping by and
maybe if we all dream of Spring time it will hurry up and get here!
'til next time,

  3. Very different type of wreath, but very pretty and very springy.
    I am sure they would sell very well, as there are so many people
    into that burlap look these days.
