I can't wait to make this! 

This looks so easy.  I found this in Southern Living. 

Frames: To re-create this look, purchase inexpensive frames from a crafts or hobby store. They go on sale quite frequently, so watch for flyers in your local paper, and then stock up. The style doesn't matter because the base won't show in the end.

Wire: Use green florist wire that comes on a paddle (see photo above, right). It's easier to handle when applying the greenery in a continuous fashion. Use green wire, which blends in nicely with the garland.

Greenery: Here's the secret: Use garland to completely cover the frames. Look for deals at home-improvement stores or large wholesale clubs. We found a 25-foot cedar garland for less than $20. Simply start at one corner of the frame, and continue to wire the garland completely around the piece. Cut the garland, and tuck in pieces of greenery to fill holes.

Clippers: You'll need a good pair of clippers or wire cutters to cut the garland into pieces that perfectly fit each frame.

Floral Birds Pillow

Do you ever just see something and  think,  I just gotta have it!  Well I ran into this pillow about a month ago at Pier one.  I LOVE IT!  I have no place to put it and it goes with nothing that I own but it makes me happy.  Please someone buy this.  Then paint your walls the green in the birds and find a really cute stripe fabric to accompany it.  LOVE IT!
