Guest Blogger: The Magic Onions’ Mossy Spring Wreath.

A big welcome to Go Green Month’s first guest blogger!  I stumbled upon Donni’s blog, The Magic Onions, one day when we were featured next to each other on Craft Gossip.  I’m sure glad I did!  At the time I was still debating on the whole Go Green Month idea, and knew that she would be a perfect guest blogger!  Her blog is inspiring, as she shows us that there truly is magic in nature and our surroundings.  When she agreed to participate, Go Green Month came to life!  You’ll love her tutorial, and make sure to check out her link to the little blue eggs tutorial, you’re kids will love it.  AND, you’ll be missing out if you don’t also check out her Etsy shop, Fairyfolk, where you’ll find the CUTEST felted wool creations.  Seriously adorable!  Okay, enough from me…

Hi, I’m Donni from The Magic Onions. I am super-excited to be a guest on this lovely blog. I love that Abby is hosting a month of ‘green’ inspired posts and I am delighted to be able to participate. I have two children, T is two and K is 6. We are Waldorf inspired and do our best to lead a natural life. We love doing crafts and learning activities using natural materials… it’s amazing what you can make with the gifts from Mother Nature herself.

Today, we are going to make a Mossy Spring Wreath with a golden bow, little spring-colored paper roses and a tiny nest with robin’s eggs inside it.
a mossy spring wreath with paper roses and blue robin's eggs
This is what you’ll need:
* A wreath frame
* Dried Moss (found at a craft store)
* Tacky Glue
* Sticks for spreading the glue
* Hot glue gun
* Paper flowers
* Pretty Spring-colored ribbon
* Little blue eggs (make your own using this tutorial or find some at a craft store)
* A nest (make your own from grape vine or find one at a craft store

Cover the wreath with ample glue…

Find a little boy to help you spread the glue using the sticks.
And then I’m sure he’d love to help you stick the moss to the wreath.
When you have generously covered the wreath with moss, making sure that no part of the original wreath frame shows, leave it in the sun until the glue is dry.
When it is dry, find a little girl to help you trim the straggly bits of moss so that your mossy wreath looks neat.
With your glue gun, put a blob of glue onto the moss where you want the nest to go. Stick it on fast. Use your glue gun again to gently stick the little blue robins eggs into the nest.Use your glue gun again to stick the pretty paper roses into place.


Hang your pretty Spring wreath with the ribbon, tying a lovely bow at the top and Voila! What a pretty wreath you have to welcome in the Spring!

Thank you, Abby, for asking me to be a guest on Sew-much-ado… it has been fun and I have enjoyed meeting all of you. Happy ‘green’ living!
Blessings and magic to you today!

Thanks again Donni, we loved having you as part of our Go Green Month!
