Look at My Twig Wreath Now!

Hello Ladies, remember my twig wreath? He underwent another round of tweaking and fluffing and now he is the star of my Spring/ Easter vignette.

Twigg wreath detail

I unraveled an old little twine wreath and added it to the center to balance it a bit more and then I decorated with glue gun and eggs. And of course a nest. I love all of these natural colors together. I think it is Spring and Easter wrapped up in a nice little bundle (well circle actually).

I am not into bunnies or the bright colors that seem to go with most Easter decorations. When it comes to my living room I like neutral colors more. My Love and I are ‘present’ enough as it is, we don’t need the competition of loud colors.Smilie

Rusty lantern
I found these lanterns at a discount store (for the Dutchies: de lantaarns heb ik bij de Action gevonden). I really like their rusty, industrial look. And do you see that little nest with the bird in the back? Ha, I found another way to hide that $#@## radiator knob.

Feather and eggs

My little plaster bowl is filled with twine and feather balls along with some wooden eggs. These eggs must be a least 30 years old. I bought them as a little girl to hang in a Easter branch (in Europe willow branches decorated with little colorful (wooden) eggs and figures are a traditional Easter decoration). They were all kinds of pastel colors then, with stripes and polka dots. I painted them greenish and speckled them.

Twigg wreath
Look at him! Isn’t he handsome! Who could have thought a bunch of garden clippings could become the center of attention in my living room.

Twigg wreath detail2

At the same discount store where I found the lanterns I discovered these rusted bird and flower ornaments. I think they add just that little bit of extra interest to my wreath.

Twigg wreath vignette3
I just love vignetting! And if you share my love of vignettes hop on over to Beth’s place for the Ready Set Vignette! Party.

    I don't know how to vignette! I don't even know if I spelled it right. :)
    But I know when I see one I like! And I like yours!
    I love your wreath and your bowl. You did a great job.
    Looks like your little holiday cleared some cobwebs and cleared your head for some great vignetting!

    I sent a comment earlier but I think I hit the wrong button! I'm an American living in Germany for the past 6 yrs. I will return to the states in June. I have the EXACT 3 tiered basket you showed in your thrifting post. I haven't used it in a long time and I am more than happy to mail it to you free of charge if you want it. I would be glad for someone to use it and this way I won't have to ship it back! It looks like wire in the pic but it is a type of metal and very sturdy. Let me know if you want it. Clarks7@yahoo.com
    Love how your wreath turned out!

    Oh the wreath looks great. Well done for sticking with it until you got it the way you wanted. I would have thrown it away in disgust after being unhappy with my first attempt. The whole vignette looks lovely.

    Oh your wreath is beautiful, I love it!!! I agree with you, I prefer the more muted Easter tones rather than the bright ones. Your vignette is perfect!

    The wreath is gorgeous and the little eggs just precious. I, too, love the earthy colors. The wreath goes well above your vignette. I love everything, the speckled eggs and the feathered balls (really cool)! Well done!

    Hoi Marianne,

    Idd een prachtkrans geworden!!

    En de deco met vogels en eitjes maken hem helemaal af!

    Die gekleurde dingen….nuhhhhhh dat heb ik al jaren geleden naar zolder verbannen. Alhoewel….die eieren heb ik nu toch weer gebruikt maar door ze eerstin de kleuren van nu te bewerken. En een paastak is naar mijn idee ook helemaal uit!

    Fijne dag, groetjes Thea

    I love it, Marianne! Love the eggs. I don't do a lot of decorating for Easter specifically anymore {since the kids are grown}, but I do collect bunnies so it seems like I do!

    Zóóó'dit lijkt wel "echt" Amerikaans! Daar heb ik al op diverse blogs dit soort kransen bewonderd, maar nooit gedacht om 'em zelf te maken. Hij is echt super geworden, leuk met die kwarteleitjes! Die kun je nog tot ver na de pasen laten hangen hoor!
    Gewoon met de kerst de eitjes vervangen voor een paar kleine balletjes en klaar ben je! (hahaha…kerst… waar heb ik het over????)
