I saw this idea on somebody’s blog (I just remembered where) and thought I would try it – I love little birds. So what better than little bird nests.
I got 22ga bronze colored wire and some small blue/grey/white beads from Michaels.
I first tried hand forming the coils, but it didn’t turn out as even as I wanted. So I tried different pens I had on my desk, until I found the diameter I liked.
Then I added 3 beads and crimped down the coil, doing a little triple wrap on 3 sides.
I made 5 little nests, aren’t they cute…
Then I attached then to a barrette clip which I first covered with bronzy-green ribbon – and I love how it turned out! (I always forget how messy hot glue is until I use it again)
I also did a larger, hand formed nest that I will attach to a pin backing.
These have been fun to create, I may make a few more as gifts.
Thank you for stopping by my “studio”!
