How To Make A Small Birdnest...

I bought these very cute ceramic eggs...
and I needed a little nest to put them in to keep them safe...
I searched many a tree trying to find a used nest, but to no avail.
So I decided to make one.
I collected some moss, dried grass, coconut fibre and a few feathers.
First I moulded a small bowl out of airdry clay.
This is to give the nest a bit of weight, 
and also helps with the structure.
Put some coconut fibre into the clay bowl.
Then wove some around the outside.
Add some grass, moss and feathers...
Weave the stick out bits into the mix to help hold it together,
I wanted this nest to sit on top of this silver milk jug...
So I kept manipulating the grass and fibre until I was happy with the shape,
 and it sat nicely in the jug.  
Then added  the eggs...
  These darlings are from Myfawny Pughs Studio.

Isn't the aqua colour simply gorgeous?
This DIY faux bird nest completed my Easter sideboard display...
