Bird's Nest Spring Wreath{DIY}

A wire hanger & burlap? That simple?!
This was so easy.  I followed this tutorial here.

I did make my strips a little thinner for a thicker fill & I was using a smaller sized wreath.
I added my own touches to it using vintage fabric to make flower rosettes and hot glued them onto the burlap.

I took a photo and sent it to my sister, aunt, and mom.
Everyone responded with compliments, but my sister said "It reminds me of a bird's nest." 
{I immediately remembered those little clip on bird ornaments from my Christmas tree}
PERFECT---I put a bird on it! {ha} 

I like hanging all my wreaths using clothes line, clothes pins and fabric for the top of the wreath {just my thing}.
I also whipped up a little matching fabric banner for our porch bench.

A good start to outdoor spring cuteness!

Thanks for looking!
