Spring Mantel with Moss Wreath

After a day of spring-like weather, it was time for the red and white of Valentine's Day to be put away.  I had two springs wreaths in mind for my spring decorating.  This is by far the easiest and fastest wreath I've ever put together.  It's simple, sweet and green.
Supplies:  14" straw wreath (keep the pastic on the wreath!), 2 packages of green sheet moss, 1 package of floral pins, 4 straw nests with eggs.
Lay the moss across the straw wreath and secure with floral pins.
 Keep covering all the way around...
 Secure with floral pins:
 The moss comes apart easily and makes a big mess.  The less you handle the wreath, the better.
 Once the wreath is covered in sheet moss, secure the nests with two floral pins.
 Finished in less than 5 minutes.
 I hung the wreath on the wall above the mantel with a nail and framed it with an open frame:
 I love the new addition to the spring mantel.  It is similar to the mantel last spring, but the wreath changes it up enough to feel fresh in our home.
The ground is still covered in snow outside, but it sure is Spring-y inside!
