Paper bird nests

Just sharing some things I've been working on this week.
I saw this idea in Country Living magazine and loved it,
so I got busy crafting and getting messy
with shredded paper and glue.


shredded paper mache bird nests



some with vintage sheet music


and an Alabaster dove
{This one is sold . . . thank you, Vyanna :) }

how about pink?

with a cute little sheet music bird ornament

  16. Hi Julie! What fun to decorate blue eggs! I only had little ones so I couldn't! The blue eggs aren't so easy to find, either!! Can't wait to see yours! No need to link to me! I've gathered bits of inspiration from all over, and take no personal credit unless I know for sure it is a totally custom design! You're too sweet, though!! So glad to meet you!

    Have a delightful weekend!!
