Several weeks ago I showed you how to make some faux Robin eggs. I have quite a few of them hanging around here and wanted to make a little nest for them.
Starting with a cheapy little flat basket that I had on hand, I gathered a few sticks and tucked them into the basket. I fired up the glue gun and drizzled glue over the sticks and back and forth across the basket. Working quickly, Spanish moss got pressed into the glue on the inside of the basket.
I added in the eggs and glued them to the moss. Next I added in sheet moss that had faded and looked more brown than green. I just tucked it here and there until it looked random enough to suit me.
There are a couple of things I like about this type of craft:
- It’s free. I had all of the stuff on hand.
- It’s versatile, I can tuck it into a planter outside or keep it in.
- When the season is over, I’ll pull the eggs out and toss the rest. No storing it. I can just make it again next year….
- … ‘cuz it’s fun to do.
