Make A Spring Tulip Wreath With A Handmade Bird Nest
This wreath is absolutely perfect for welcoming spring guests. Let’s get crafty!
1
To begin making the bird nest, mix equal parts Mod Podge and water.
3
Blow up a balloon to desired bird nest size. Use a water balloon for smaller nests. Place in a jar. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
4
Begin forming the base of the nest by dipping paper shreds into Mod Podge mixture and placing on top of balloon.
5
Continue layering and crossing strips to create a solid structure.
6
Make sure the entire balloon is covered under the nest area. Let dry for a few hours.
7
Next, dip handfuls of paper shreds into Mod Podge mixture and loosely lay on top and around nest until desired look is achieved. Let dry 24 hrs.
8
Deflate and remove balloon. Form nest by cutting off excess paper shreds.
9
Attach bird nest to bottom center of grapevine wreath with floral wire or glue.
10
Use wire cutters to snip artificial tulips from bunches. I used 3 bunches in total. Some tulips may need to be shortened before placing in wreath.
11
Begin placing tulips in wreath. The grapevine should hold them in place, but if needed, use floral wire to secure. Tulips should cradle bird nest.
12
Add paper shreds inside nest and put (glue) a bird in it.
