Barbed wire wreath with bird nest for Fall decor.

I made this wreath with barbed wire and a bird nest that I found on our property.  It only took about a half hour and is really easy to make.


  • barbed wire
  • flowers and autumn leaves
  • bird nest or moss
  • hot glue gun

Step 1.

Form an oval shape with the barbed wire making two loops.

Step 2.

Glue leaf garland onto barbed wire.

Step 3.

Glue bird nest on to the wire.

Step 4.

Glue on a sunflower and then start adding more of the flowers you’ve chosen until it looks full but not overloaded.  You should move them around and then stand back and look at them before you glue them.

You can also add raffia or ribbon or anything else you can think of.  I like to put seasonal things like candy corn, acorns, candy, etc… in the nests I use in wreaths.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
