“How to Craft a Bird Nest with Speckled Eggs”
As you have been witness to these past few weeks…I have a fetish.
Moss and eggs.
Moss, eggs and birds nests.
(Okay, that’s three fetishes.)
That is why this project is so perfect for me.
The best part is that I spent so little money at Jo-Ann Crafts
to get such a dramatic impact on my front porch.
Jo-Ann makes Spring crafting easy during
National Craft Month especially when you have
A shared a Forsythia Wreath I made for my
2014 Spring Porch Reveal yesterday.
The wreath featured a beautiful, speckled egg-filled nest.
Both the wreath and the nest were inspired by projects which were
shared on Stone Gable by my sweet friend, Yvonne.
Here are the supplies I used:
I purchased a large grapevine nest. This one is large – about 6″ wide.
I also purchased a bag of reindeer moss (LOVE that stuff!) and
a small package of speckled pastel eggs. (LOVE these, also)
Did I mention above I have some fetish issues?
It took me all of 5 minutes to put this nest together…
I cut a sprig of variegated silk ivy into smaller 3-5″ pieces and
attached them around the edge of the nest with my low temp glue gun.
Already pretty, huh?
Next, I glued on a few pieces of forsythia which had fallen out
of the stems when I was making my wreath.
Using my reindeer moss, I used smaller pieces and glued them
randomly around the edge, as if the moss was growing onto the nest.
So fetishly cute!
I needed a little “nest” in my nest for the eggs…so I filled it with
larger clumps of moss, also glued into place.
Finally, the speckled eggs were glued into place, as well.
I tell ya’ – easy crafts like this make my heart go pitter-patter.
This is the kind of decor I will leave out until I decorate for Fall.
It’s what I call a “Happy Craft.”
When I originally made this – I thought I would place this on my
glass coffee table on a vintage, glass candleholder.
It’s shown here with one of my favorite Bunnies.
(I will share my Spring-decorated Living Room soon.)
Here is a close-up of the “Nest Topiary.”
In the end though, the Forsythia Wreath needed a little
“something-something” and I knew the
Bird Nest with Speckled Eggs
would be that perfect “something.”
And I wasn’t wrong.

I received compensation for this review; however, this is my personal, honest
opinion based on my
experience, and all personal festishes for moss, nests and eggs are my own.”
