Vintage Birds

I picked up a bunch of these small woven wreaths for only .75cents for the lot. I knew exactly what I was going to do with them when I spotted them. I cut off the woven pieces that held them together... and pulled them to form little nests. I used cardboard circles as the base/bottom for each little nest, added some shredded paper and a vintage bird.I had previously decorated these vintage birds with party hats to place on the fairy tree I made early in the month. They came together really fast and will be for sale at my craft boutique next month~

Cute birds and nests! You're very creative! Now I wish I didn't pass up that last bag of mini wreaths I saw at the thrift! LOL I'm trying to "pass" on stuff these days, then you go and show us this cute craft! Good luck at your sale this weekend, and I hope you get some relief from the doctors on your painful shoulder.
Blessings, Heidi
