An old favorite with a new look.


I made an Easter wreath more years ago than I like to think about. I just loved it! The second year I put it out a bird also decided it was pretty neat too because she built her nest in it. Then she laid and watched over three eggs. I could not have been more excited. I was at the time pregnant with my first child. Yes, I know he is 12 now, but that is a minor detail. I left it up forever. I think it was time for halloween before I took it down, but oh I enjoyed having baby birds grow up in my Easter wreath. I guess I put it out each year since hoping that the phenomenon might repeat, but alas I now have three busy boys so no luck! hahaha I guess the birds are much smarter than that.





Well, I love that wreath much more than I should so I just haven't been able to part with it. I can't think of many other holiday decorations who have hung around so long. This year I couldn't bear to put it out again. It looks horrible! I also couldn't throw it away. Soooooo... I decided it needed a makeover. I just love the results. What do you think?
