I made these cute little nests Saturday night instead of cooking dinner for my starving family. Yes, I have been known to craft (or garden, sew, blog etc.) instead of being a responsible adult.
When the crafting bug bites me, I just HAVE to create. Here's what inspired me.
I bought this wired twine about 6 months ago at JoAnne's, thinking I would use it somehow for my daughter's upcoming wedding. Wanting to make a little something for each place setting at my Easter table, I was visualizing nests. Enter twine.
I cut off about 15 inches of the wired twine with my needle nose pliers and using the pliers, twisted the wire around several times to make this. . .
Sorry for the bad pics - it was getting dark and my family was starting to cry.
Then I cut off about 7 more inches of the stuff and wove it around the spiraling twine to look like this. . .
Then I filled them with Jordan almonds that I had previously picked up at Target.
After tossing a few Jordan almonds to my family to keep them quiet, I did finally feed them real food.
Easter dinner was lovely and I enjoyed having a little something for each family member at their place.
I'm joining up with these parties:
