Birdhouse Wreath

This idea is a wonderful wreath design for someone who is a bird lover because its centerpiece is a birdhouse.

Check out the closeup view to see the tiny bird and eggs I added (with glue) to the bird house porch area, as the perfect accent to the birdhouse.

The base is a grapevine wreath, covered in silk ivy, fern, berries, preserved moss (found in plastic bags @ craft stores) & flowers.   You can either wire your birdhouse inside the wreath (securing it from the the top & bottom, inside the wreath) or you can hang the birdhouse and wreath on separate nails, measuring the appropriate distance to ensure the birdhouse displays inside the wreath when both are hung.

I love to shop inexpensive home stores, like Old Time Pottery or Hobby Lobby for reasonably-priced bird houses.  If you don’t have these stores near you, try www.PlowAndHearth.com or www.JacksonAndPerkins.com.
