Paper Lunch Bag Nests

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.


Nesty goodness.


Then you get to feather your nest…
