Here are the simple steps to making this cute nest:
You'll need a strip of burlap, tacky glue, a chipboard or cardboard circle and pearls:
Gently pull the long threads from the burlap. You'll be left with varying lengths of burlap threads:
Add a ring of glue on the circle and start to layer on the burlap threads:
Add another layer of glue and another layer of burlap:
When it's mounded high enough, let dry:
(A bird's nest is not perfect, and you don't want your's to look perfect, either ;)
Lastly, add your pearl 'eggs' after the glue dries:
Then look at your hands...and have fun peeling the glue off! :)
Easy or what?
