This is a really attractive wreath and a really popular one. you’ll want to collect a supply of twigs which are long, thin and pliable. you’ll also need craft wire, 22 to 24 gauge, wire cutters, a glue gun, glue sticks, and a wreath base. you’ll also want some bird picks, the selection is yours, a man-made birds’ nest, wooden eggs, small ones, and an outsized ribbon.
You will want to chop the twigs into about ten-inch lengths. Take a couple of twigs, choosing an amount that seems right to you, bind them firmly together and cut the wire, securing it then tucking it into the twig bunch which you’ve got just created. Continue this until you’ve got created what you are feeling are enough bunches to hide your wreath base. Take a wreath bunch and fasten it securely to the wreath bases with craft wire. Continue this until you’ve got completely covered the wreath base. Cut the craft wire and secure it firmly into the wreath.
Now you’ll want to require the birds’ nest and secure it firmly to the wreath. Take a ten-inch piece of craft wire and fold it into a “U” shape. Poke this thru the rear of the birds’ nest then stick the ends of the wires through the twig bunches at rock bottom of the wreath and secure the wires firmly to the wreath base, tucking them in in order that they’re completely covered by the twig bunches. Now hot glue the nest to the wreath bunches to offer it added security and stability.
Next glue the synthetic eggs into the birds’ nest. Depending upon the breed of the bird which you’ve got chosen, you’ll or might not want to color the eggs first.
Now take your bird picks and place them where you’d like them on the wreath. you’ll also want to use your glue gun and glue to form sure that they’re securely attached.
Take your ribbon and form an outsized bow and glue it securely to the highest of your twig wreath. You now have a gorgeous twig wreath, which may be used at any time of the year. I hope you’ll enjoy it and pride yourself in your work.
