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.

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:
