Happy Thursday!!! Isn’t it a beautiful Spring day? I am in California helping my mom recover from a hip replacement surgery. She is slowly recovering, but doing really well. I am enjoying the green hills and the birds singing while I am here. And, of course the quality time I am having with my mom. I am also excited to spend Easter with some of our sweet grand kiddos.
If you know me, you know I like vintage and book pages, right? Well, I have the ideal book page bird nest for your Easter table or for anytime of year. This is MY version of a DIY Book Page Bird Nest.
Isn’t it sweet???
Let me share with you how I made my book page bird nest.
Using a few vintage book pages and my shredder scissors, I had the beginning of a bird nest.
My next step was to wrap a bowl with plastic wrap. I wrapped my bowl loosely, but you could do it tighter if you like.
You can also make various sizes if you choose.
I loosely lined my bowl with the book page strips.
I had a mixture of half Elmer’s glue and half water ready to apply to my book page strips.
Using a sponge brush, I lightly moistened the book page strips. Until almost the whole “nest” was wet.
I set my bowl outside to dry in the warm sun.
It did not take long before it was almost dry. I carefully peeled the bird nest away from the plastic wrap.
I am very pleased with my DIY Book Page Bird Nest. They are ideal for any Easter table setting, or just to have as décor in your home anytime of year.
I KNOW I will be making more book page bird nests in the very near future. How about you?
You could make a variety of sizes, shapes and even colors.
Thanks for joining me today while I shared a small thing that makes me smile.
Make it a terrific Thursday!
