An Icy Winter Wreath with a Burlap Nest

As much as I love living in North Carolina, now, I still love looking at snow and ice. Thus, my desire to create this year's winter wreath!

I found this nice, pre-lit, realistic one with pine cones at my nearby Habitat and scapped it up for a cheap $8.
I used lots of Snow-tex and glitter to enhance it and bring it to life!

Lots and lots of wintery snow, all over and on my great big burlap bow.

At the dollar store I found strands of plastic icicles. I cut them one by one and added them here and there.

Then I made a little, burlap nest filled with "snow" and added an icicle strand around the rim.
  I found the perfect "fluffiest" cardinal to snuggle in the nest!
 I'm so happy with the way it turned out and the fact that I'll get to display it for the entire winter season!
I'll be working on the inside decor and will be back to reveal it soon!

 Love, Hugs and Kisses,
