Easy Spring Wreath!!!

This cute project is rated as EASY!!!  A small waterhose can make up to 3 or 4 wreaths, so enjoy this project with a few friends.

You need a section of waterhose, glue, florist wire, glove, birdhouse and fake flowers, spanish moss and a raffia bow.

Instructions: First cut the hose long enough to circle around 2 times. This makes a nice wreath. Using wire, add spanish moss to the bottom 1/2 of the wreath by wrapping the wire around the hose to secure the moss. See it behind the flowers and under the birdhouse?!?!?  Next fill your glove with Spanish moss and a sprig of flowers, glue those securely inside the glove. Add the glove to the wreath with some hot glue. Then secure it with a bow by tying it to the wreath and making a pretty bow at the wrist of the glove. Add flowers to the opposite side using wire to secure. Glue in decorative items like a birdhouse, flower pots, butterflies, etc.

With a little care, these wreaths can last outside quite a long time, but beware, birds love using the Spanish Moss for their nests!! So be prepared to replace some moss from time to time!!
