Easy Christmas Ornament

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!

There is a poem or something that goes with a bird's nest Christmas ornament. I'll see if I can find it for you. You are supposed to hide the nest in the tree's branches or something. I'll let you know if I find it. BTW, cute ornament.

very cute! nice gifts!
