spring easter nest :: diy

i shipped a few of these out to some friends earlier this week, so hopefully they've received the packages and i'm not giving anything away here!  anyway, i wanted to share with you how i made these cute little nests:

  1. form spanish moss into the shape of by hollowing out the center of a bundle
  2. spray the entire nest with adhesive spray
  3. add leaves, sticks and other things from nature to make the nest look more realistic
  4. let dry completely
  5. apply acrylic matte spray to seal the nest
  6. decorate.  i painted wooden eggs and stamped names on them, but you could add a little bird, candy... the ideas are endless!
happy spring!
