A "Nest" Project!!

What a difference a day makes!!  It it so warm here today 47 degrees in February in Michigan!!  I must be dreaming. 

Since it is warm ( not snowing) I decided to go check out some stores I have not been to in a of them is Pottery Barn.  I saw so many fun things- some real cute Easter items, but my favorite of all has to be all the fun birds nests and eggs!!

A while back- on a cold gloomy day- I decided to put together my own little nest project.  I started with a really bad ugly frame that I picked up at the Goodwill outlet.  I did not take a picture of it but trust me it was bright yellow with this little tin mouse type creature glued on it.  YUCK!!

After I pried off the mouse and sanded, primed and painted it robins egg blue, it looked like this:

Sorry about the bad pic quality, I am still learning!!

I filled in the opening with a piece of cardboard covered with scrapbook paper.  I then glued a small nest I had leftover from another project on the paper and then hot glued small eggs in the nest.  Using my cricut I cut out two little birds and a branch and mod podged them on.

Doesn't this just make you want Spring to be here?
