Mini Bird's Nest Place Settings

Hello friends!  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog!

Being that it is almost Spring and that the rainy weather has finally relented, it got me thinking about my Easter Tablescape.  I thought it would be fun to place tiny nests at each setting indicative of the season.  I hope you enjoy the post. 

You will need:

Poster board
Spanish moss
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Plate you intend to use in your setting 
Writing utensil
Assorted small Spring blooms

Begin by using the center of your plate as a guide.  Trace the underside of your plate.  Tracing the plate intended for use in your tablescape will ensure it fits right inside your plate.

Cut out. 

Use your cutout as a template to make how many you need. 


Trim away a bit so that all of your circles are symmetrical. 

Bead glue onto the outer perimeter of your circle.

Mold the moss around the circle where you beaded the glue. 

For extra reinforcement, between the layers, dot glue sporadically and continue to mold into a nest shape.  Allow cool time.  

Once cool, lift up the edge of your nest and trim away any visible portions of the poster board. 

Finally, shake vigorously to remove loose fibers. All set!  


You can choose to adorn with small blooms as I've done here,

Or add eggs.  To view my tutorial about how to make these speckled eggs, you may visit the tutorial in the archives by clicking here.  

The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination!  All supplies purchased at The Dollar Tree.
