While using the 15% off coupon at Michaels this weekend, Kara saw some birds that she fell in love with and wanted me to buy. She told me that she had the perfect idea for her next craft.
For this craft she used..
a clay flower pot
a package of 2 medium size birds
a package of baby birds
a package of speckled eggs
a mini grapevine wreath
a bag of moss from the dollar store.
to keep the moss from falling out of the bottom of the flower pot, she stuffed a plastic bag on the bottom. This was also done so that she did not need to use as much moss.
She filled the pot with with moss, and left a hole in the middle.
She placed in the mini wreath which then became the top of the bird nest.
She added in some of the eggs and one of the baby birds.
She added in the mama and papa bird
She tied a pretty pink ribbon around the flower pot. She found this ribbon in the $1 sale bin.
It turned out so cute. She has since added in a few more eggs, which makes it look even better. The Flower Pot Nest is such a fun way to celebrate the start of spring this week. It would also make a nice gift for Mothers Day.
