I found this crown on sale at a cute little gift store in Boise last year.
I thought I would put a candle in it. Maybe a bird? Hey, I like a good trend, and I have collected quite a few birds and items with birds on them over the past few seasons. I didn't like the look of either, so I decided to make an arrangement with a nest on top.
I bought this little nest with eggs at Ross. I bought some moss and a little ivy. I cut off a few of the ivy tips so the leaves were very small. The fern was really hard for me to find. I ended up buying
a fern in a little pot. It was stuck in the pot with a bunch of foam and hot glue, so I made a huge styrofoam mess pulling it out of the pot. I flattened it out and worked in a few strands of ivy. I poked some little bunches of moss in here and there.
I filled the bottom of the crown with moss.
I added the greenery and nest.
Voila! The finished crown.
It's beginning to look like spring in here, even though it is snowing outside.
