Spring Nests

Since my last set of nests (below) sold out so quickly, I decided to make some new ones with a spring theme.
I love how bright and cheery these turned out with the colored eggs on a nest of Spanish moss tucked in a vintage tart tin.
I added a removable chalkboard style sign using my Labels Four Nestabilities (Spellbinders), pastel papers, alphabet punches, some twine, and the Tiny Tattered Florals Dies from Tim Holtz.
These pretty little nests are perfect for adding to your spring or Easter decor and were a lot of fun to make!

This is SO sweet, Esther. I picked up a whole bunch of these vintage tins at an antique store in Minnesota a couple of summers past, and I've been holding on to them; not quite knowing what I will use them for. Now I have an idea. LOL Thanks for the inspiration. Thanks also for sharing your talents with us in the Easter/Spring Challenge. It's always a blessing to have you play along with us.
