Hi everyone! Hope all is going well with you. It has been an eventful week at our house from family illnesses to plumbing emergencies to carbon monoxide scare. I am hoping this week will be more positive!
Recently, a friend and I did a shabby chic bird's nest swap inspired by Jennifer Stevens at Ooh LaLa Vintage Treasures. The nest is displayed on a bedspring. A doily was starched and shaped to create the nest. From there, it was just adding various lace trims, appliques, bling, yarn, more doilies, eggs, and, of course, the bird. There is a picture overload, so please sit back and enjoy.
I began by painting the bedspring with gesso and then covering it with trims, lace, appliques and bling.
This is a view of the completed nest from the top. I wanted to make sure you could see the tiny eggs I tucked in by the bird.
The rest of the photos show the nest from various angles.
The link for Jennifer's creation is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2vOdoTJoOw. I just used whatever I found in my stash.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by and if you read through this long post! I appreciate reading your sweet comments. Have a wonderful week ahead!
