Bird’s nest

I made this cute little nest for Easter. I had some more decorations planned, but this was all I had time for.

I remember seeing something like this on a blog years ago, only made in wire. It was awesome, and I planned to make one for a long time, but then I lost the link and forgot about it.

Of course I couldn’t find my wire the day I did this, so I used some faux leather string I have for macrame, first in brown, then in green. It was wonky and weird and didn’t look much like a nest:

Then I used some tweed effect wool yarn to shape it and plug all the holes. And what do you know, it actually looks like a nest!

The eggs are beads in a weird iridescent lime green, so they’re hard to get proper pictures of. I wanted to get some blue ones instead, to make it look like a robin’s nest. Now it looks like this:
