2 Blackbirds Autumn Wreath | Tutorial

A couple weeks ago, I decided I wanted to make an Autumn wreath for my MIL's front door. She was so excited about my plan to make her one that I knew I couldn't buy a pre-made anything for her...and I didn't want too! What fun would that be?! So I took a trip to JoAnn's and found some fun fall items to work with and put together a wreath that she fell in love with at first sight!

My favorite part about the wreath are these 2 adorable blackbirds. They add a touch of whimsy and fun to the wreath!!!

It all really began with these 2 adorable little blackbirds that I found at JoAnn's! They spoke to me and said "Put us on a wreath. We'll be adorable!" And of course they were!!!

Start placing the stems on the wreath and play around with their placement. Do NOT hot glue anything just yet. You want to make sure you like it there before you commit with the glue!

Once you are pleased and happy with where everything is going to go, hot glue them in place.
