Old Bed Spring Crow's Nest


How many times have you read a blog that's starts out "So I was skimming through Pinterest when".....? Yeah, that's what happened here. Ha!  THIS is the one I pinned on Pinterest. When I saw this cute little crow, I knew I had to make one.  I also knew I had all the supplies to do it. So I went shopping in my craft room.
To recreate my crow's nest, you will need the following supplies:

Hot glue gun with glue sticks
Black crow (the crafty kind)
Old rusty bed spring
Twine 
Ribbon
Spanish Moss
Pearl pins
Buttons
Rhinestones
Old book page
Beads
Material to make the rosette (I used vintage seam binding)
Stuff a hand full of moss in the top of the spring, then add the crow and all your "decorations" using your hot glue gun.
I made the rosette by twisting seam binding and then hot gluing it to a piece of heavy card stock in a circular motion.  The book page bow is just a 4 x 6 piece that I scalloped on the edges and then formed to the shape of a bow. I then tied it with a vintage button and some twine to hold it.
Lastly I added a few beads, rhinestones and some pearl head pins just to add interest. You know, like maybe the crow gathered them to make her nest more lovely?
She looks so happy with herself all perched up there in her beautiful nest of bling and baubles.
 I think she fits right in to my spooky Farmhouse decor!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
