Here is a very sweet and inexpensive Christmas ornament
I made to give as gifts this year...
bird's nests for the tree!
Here's how I did it:
I found this decorative excelsior moss in one of my cabinets
and decided it would make a great base for the nest.
I pulled out a small amount and just used my hands to press and shape until...
it took on the shape of a birds nest.
I thought it looked a little too "green" so I spritzed it with a bit of brown spray paint I had on hand.
I picked up a bag of spanish moss at the Dollar Tree
and added it to the nest to give it more dimension.
I made little bird eggs out of air dry clay I had left over from a school project and hot glued them in the nest along with a bit of Merry Christmas ribbon.
I made these as gifts, but I think I need to make one for my tree, too!
