It’s March and that also means it is National Craft Month. Since this month is all about celebrating crafts, we also wanted to celebrate people who craft. All month long we will be introducing you to some craft bloggers. We here at Paint Me Plaid love to showcase the amazing crafts that other craft bloggers create, but in addition to showing off their crafts we want to spotlight the crafter as well. Today we have a guest blogger, Malia, from Yesterday on Tuesday.
Happy National Craft Month, everyone! March is here and Spring has (almost) sprung. When I think of spring, I think of birdies chirping and sweet little nests. It’s easy and fun to make your own cute nests with some simple supplies including Mod Podge.
Paper Bag Nests
Supplies: Cling Wrap, Mod Podge, paper lunch bags, a small bowl and a paper shredder!
Cut some strips out of the paper bags 1 1/2-2 inches thick
Meanwhile shred up some paper lunch sacks
Cover the bowl with Cling Wrap
Using a foam brush, paint Mod Podge on the paper strips and press around bowl to make the nest shape. Nest dab Mod Podge on empty spots and gently press paper shreds in
Let it dry overnight
To separate the bowl and nest gently peel back Cling Wrap. Trim top of nest.
Then you get to feather your nest…
With a bird… (Dollar Store find)
Or there’s always eggs!
