Spring is in full swing and what better way to celebrate than building your own bird’s nest! I made a few of these and nestled them in wreaths and tucked them onto branches.
– Spray glue
– Spanish moss
– Green sheet moss
– Twigs, feathers and other nesty what-not
– A few eggs if your birds are the family type
Gather your Spanish moss into a nest-size ball and spray it all over with spray glue. (Best to wear some gloves.) While wet, shape it into a nest shape. If needed hit it with some more glue until it starts to hold it’s shape.
Using a glue gun add bits of green moss. I concentrated on partially covering the inside of the nest and having a few pieces curve over the top. Then go back and insert a few twigs around the outside. Add a feather here and there. I also added a piece of silk ivy curving around the outside.
Add a few eggs. I then nestled them into a few wreaths. These will last year after year and what a great way to welcome spring.
