Smoothfoam™ Bird's Nest Wreath

This month on the Smoothfoam™ blog they are sharing this springtime Bird's Nest Wreath I designed with a Smoothfoam™ wreath and Smoothfoam™ eggs!  DecoArt® Americana® Acrylics and Americana® Decor™ paints were the finishing touch.

The full instructions are here on the Smoothfoam™ blog - but here are a couple of photos not included there - highlighting the joy of crafting with two four legged studio assistants lol!

Mason helped by biting off the twigs as I wired them on. 
Ike helped by sticking his nose in the wet paint.


  1. This makes me long for springtime, very cute, creative, and just plain adorable!!!!! I also love your final comment on daring to be different!!! I don't know if it's because I am no older and sick of the same thing over and over but my friends & family roll their eyes at me constantly when I go into my sermons about being original, stop following the masses and be that one person who everyone stops, gasps, and just smiles at. Thanks for sharing your wreath with all of Us!

    1. Thank you so much Deb for your kind words! I'm glad you like the project - I was pleased with how it ended up :) And yes, I too just get so tired of people copying everything, having no originality, not daring to be UNIQUE! Here's to all of us who DARE TO BE DIFFERENT! :) Happy New Year!
