This DIY project involves a secret tool…
Supplies: Cling Wrap, Modge Podge, paper lunch bags, a small bowl and a paper shredder!
Cut some strips out of the paper bags 1 1/2-2 inches thick
Meanwhile shred up some paper lunch sacks
Cover the bowl with Cling Wrap
Using a foam brush, paint Modge Podge on the paper strips and press around bowl to make the nest shape. Nest dab Modge Podge on empty spots and gently press paper shreds in
Let it dry overnight
To separate the bowl and nest gently peel back Cling Wrap. Trim top of nest.
Then you get to feather your nest…
With a bird… (Dollar Store find)
Or there’s always eggs!
Hey, they are really pretty! This is something we can do with the little ones, I bet they’ll love making their own nests. Thank you!
Very cute idea. Bet kids would love doing this project. Thanks for sharing :)
I bought some eggs but realized I had no nest! Thanks for sharing how you made yours!

Really cute. I tried this over the weekend and I don’t think mine is as cute as yours! I didn’t use a paper shredder but probably will in my next try. :)

This is too funny, guess what we’re going to be making soon…the exact same thing. Great minds think alike! We’re having my friends over on Palm Sunday and I wanted something cute for the little girl’s table settings and when I looked at mini baskets they all seemed so expensive. Then I got my issue of CL and thought, BINGO!

I love love this project! THANKS SO MUCH! I have a bridal shower to do using a bird/nest/vintage theme and this is perfect for treats on the table! I also love the natural “feel” of the paper bags plus it’s recycling which I adore.
