DIY Baby Birds Nest from Easter Basket Shavings

We just planned the cutest little kids Easter themed party and I am so excited about all the little DIY creations that went into making it such a success. These little DIY Baby Birds Nest creations are an idea I had, that to be honest I had no idea was going to work out or not (my ideas don’t always turn out!).

These little nests could be used a number of different ways; filled with candies, used for name cards on or beside your plates, cupcake holders, and more. Let your imagination go and incorporate our little DIY Baby Bird Nest creations at your next Easter or bird themed party. “A Little Baby Bird” might just be the sweetest theme for a baby shower or first birthday party… hmmm now we are onto something.

Supplies:

  • Easter Basket Shavings
  • Parchment paper
  • Hot glue gun

Directions:

  1. Heat up your hot flue gun while you are prepping your station.
  2. Lay out parchment papers so that you have enough room to hot glue gun your nest. Minimum size double the width that you want your nest.
  3. Form a flat circle with your Easter basket shavings. Hot glue directly onto the parchment paper a circle and then zig zags to fill the circle, about the size of the circle you just created with the shavings. Push the shavings circle down onto the hot glue. (Don’t worry, the hot glue peels off the parchment paper with ease so press as hard as you can!)
  4. Form the ring that will be the sides of your nest with the shavings. I grabbed a handful and twisted them around themselves until I reached the length that I wanted.

  5. Hot glue directly around the outside of your flat bottom of shavings. Once you have enough glue place your ring onto of your shavings bottom, press down firmly. Use dabs of glue to fill any loose areas and let dry.

  6. The beauty of these nests is that it doesn’t have to be perfect, the messy look is totally perfectly perfect! Have fun with it and fill them with all sorts of different goodies.
  7. Repeat steps until you have the desired amount for the party!

  • I’ve worn these shoes everyday since surgery, three cheers for not having to bend over to put shoes and socks on. James calls them my “grandma shoes” I call them “awesome”.

  • Evelyn got the honours of putting the star on the tree today, she got it on her first try. 🌟
  • Six years ago James proposed to me after spending the night together at @vandusengarden Festival of Lights. I can't even believe that six years has gone by since we were sipping Apple Cider and walking the pathways with two year old Ezra by our sides. Now, six years later we enjoyed a night at #vandusenfol again, just with a couple more kids by our side. We bundled up, enjoyed mini donuts and hot chocolate, met up with friends and enjoyed multiple rides on the carousel. It's events like this that make the holidays magical and memorable for kids and adults. Swipe right to see images from our night out last week. #ad

  • Home from the hospital and feeling good (a bit loopy) but overall good. Surgery went well, and I’m home to recover. Thankful for all the messages and prayers today, and for my family for all their support.
