Last Monday, I featured these adorable bird nest decorations.
The idea for these bird nest plaques came from the catalog Country Door. As promised, here is a quick tutorial of how to make them.
Step 1: Purchase 2 wood plaques.
Step 2: Paint the outside of the wooden plaques.
Step 3: Cut music sheets to fit slightly inside the 2 wooden plaques. Several people have asked...I found the music sheet paper on E-bay.
Step 4: Ink the outside of the music sheets to give them a semi-antiqued look.
Step 5: Using Mod Podge, attach the music sheets to the plaques. Let dry.
Step 6: Using a paper towel, lightly apply a brown paint to the sides of the plaques. With a clean paper towel, wipe off excess paint. This will continue the semi-antiqued look.
Step 7: Hot glue bird nests to the front of the plaques. I purchased my bird nests (instead of making them) from Wal-mart.
Step 8: Hot glue the bird eggs to the inside of the nests.
Step 9: Paint the bird nests a light blue to match the outside of the plaques.
Step 10: Using a stencil brush, blot brown paint onto the blue eggs.
Step 10: Display and enjoy!
