Easy Wreath for Springtime

Jennifer Howard | Cottage on Bunker Hill

Forsythia are the first flowering shrub here in New England.

The bright yellow flowers are a welcome sight after a long winter! Here is an easy forsythia wreath to make to welcome Spring.


2 Forsythia Stems 2 Pussy Willow Stems Grapevine Wreath Green Moss  Added Bird's Nest: Spanish moss, mini eggs, spray adhesive.

What to Do:


Trim Stems

Trim off the excess stem off of the forsythia flowrs.

Add Forsythia:


Add Forsythia

Start on one side of the wreath and add stems tucking them into the grapevine to secure in place. Repeat on other side of wreath


Add Pussy Willow

Next tuck in pieces of the pussy willow stems.

How It Should Look:



Repeat on the opposite side of the wreath.

Green Moss

You can tuck pieces of green moss into the grapevine wreath for more detail if you like.

DIY Bird's Nest

You will need spray adhesive, Spanish moss & disposable gloves

Grab a clump of moss and form nest shape

Spray adhesive and form nest shape with dent in center.

Use more adhesive to adhere mini eggs and green moss

Attach Nest

Hot glue the DIY nest onto your wreath. I like it slightly off-center near the bottom.
