Spring Bird Nest!

So I've been seeing birdie nests all over blogworld lately. Combine that with my little boy's love of birds and I just had to figure out a fun way to make my own.

Luckily, it all came together.

I used:
*random untensil holder from Target Dollar bin
*Spanish Moss (Dollar Store)
*Two birds (Dollar Store)
*A nest (.59 at Walmart!)
*random bits of ribbon and raffia

All I did with the white holder was tie ribbon on the handles at the top:

Then I filled it with the spanish moss and let it poke all out the sides. The nest fit perfectly on top!

I decided to make a tag to hang off. All I used was a piece of printed burlap I had, cut it into the shape of a tag then put some letter bubble stickers that said 'spring' on it! Attach with raffia and ribbon and...

I got so excited about taking pictures I forgot to get ones with birdies outside... here it is inside...

I spraypainted the birds with Almond and sanded them to let their colors show through a little.

Aren't they just springy?? I loved how it turned out... now I just gotta keep them from being taken by my two year old :)
