Wire bird's nests have been all over the internet for at least a couple years. I first noticed them shortly after I began blogging back in 2008. Both on blogs and on Etsy. So while the idea wasn't mine, I have been enjoying creating my version of them for the past year or so. I've also enjoyed carrying my supplies for them inside this pretty little bag that Jillayne sent to me during a swap we did. It's the perfect size for my wire, snips and tiny little "eggs"!
You can see the beginning of a second little nest in the photo below. I begin by threading on three "eggs" and then just twist and weave the wire until I like how it looks. Sounds so technical, doesn't it?!
The completed nest is a pin. I also make them into necklaces and use them in my altered art work as well.
I find them very relaxing to make....one of those "mindless" kind of things to do. Although you do have to pay a little attention to what you're doing....so you don't end up with a gigantic nest!
Here's some variations of a wire bird's nest that I recently found on ETSY. I love all the ideas out there!
