Sweet Little Bird Nest Tutorial

In case you missed this tutorial I shared at Ang's Juggling Act Mama as a guest poster a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd show it to you today. When working with some twine and yarn on my Twine Wrapped Easter Eggs, I started formulating a plan to use my leftovers to make these Sweet Little Bird Nests.

Here's what you'll need to make them for yourself: yarn, jute, felt, small wreath, hot glue, and a feather.
I'll let the pictures do the talking...





There you have it, a sweet little bird's nest to add a touch of whimsy to your spring decor. 
I even thought it would make a cute topper for a gift with a little tag attached. This is one of those crafts that can easily be done with your kids too, as long as you're working with a low-temp glue gun. Are you still working on your Easter decorations? Or have you abandoned them to start working on the Easter dinner menu? Thanks so much for stopping by and spending part of your day with me! I love your visits.
