How-To: Tabletop Twig Nest
Not just for the birds, nests are taking shape as some of our favorite adornments for a natural Easter. In a few simple steps, you can create your own decorative nest to welcome spring around the house. Begin with a handful of moss-covered twigs and wet them for easy shaping. Weave the flexible twigs together loosely to form a rounded base, then tuck in your choice of foraged accents-- we picked dried grass, moss and lichen, sprigs of fern, and dainty angel vine clippings. Add a few blossoms for a pop of color, and top off your nest with tiny, speckled quail eggs. Place the finished nest in a favorite tray or dish as a sweet Easter centerpiece, or use it to enliven a spring basket or planter.
