A little Twist on Coffee Filter Wreath...DIY

OK I know what your saying... Not the coffee filter wreath tutorial again. I know you see this on a ton of sites but I did mine a little different. I made this over the weekend- not because I had spare time but because I needed a little something fast and easy to hang on my mirror, so here it is..
 I used "natural" Coffee filters and wreath from the Dollar Tree.
 Covered the wreath with Brown ribbon. I kept my filters their original size, you can trim them down if you want a smaller wreath. I hot glued about three at a time on.
I hot glued a bird nest into the center, I used card stock and printed out, vintage bird postcard and collage sheet of eggs.( Thank you to the Graphics Fairy.)
 I put "NEST" using stickers on the eggs, I mod podged the eggs, Just because I think it makes the color pop a little better and hot glued "craft sticks" on the back of them. You could use what ever you have on hand such as tooth picks etc.
 Stuck them in the nest and added a little hot glue for extra support.
 Then I hot glued a little Spanish moss and waaaa laaa.

 This is the back, and I looped a ribbon through the wreath so I could hang it on my mirror.

This is so fast and easy and the possibilities are endless. I hope you enjoy making yours.
If you get creative please show me yours I would love to see!!!!!
