Spring Nest Making with Jute
By Khadija's Creative Mind on March 11th, 2014 Winter season is going great Alhamdulillah, As I am a fan of winter more than the other weathers so I enjoyed it a lot..its too good, everything seems cozy & cool.. which makes me happy.. although I have been captured by cold/cough & flu several times during the season but who cares when you are in love with this cold..! haha..well finally spring is around the corner, in my previous post I have shared a random post filled with some Spring clicks from my home garden, so Weather is changing, do you feel any glimpse of spring around?
Today I am going to share something inspired by spring season! if you are now hearing the sweet chirping of birds from your window, so it would be a happy sign! but if you are living in a busy city where the nests of birds are not easily visible near your window, so you must try something like my today’s fun creation. got it? let’s see what I want to share..sheet, all you need to have is just a foamic sheet piece, scissors, paint colors, an ear bud & glue.
I draw a bird shape on the foam sheet & cut it with scissor. I cut two shapes & then glue them both together, then fold the ear bud stick & fix it as the legs of bird.. then paint it & let it dry!! I made this simple/rough bird because it will be sticking inside the nest, just a sign of bird actually. So its not a perfect bird but its OK within the nest..dough or clay. Dough recipe)So I thought why not to use that, as I were not going to make something special with this. So I shape these as a little eggs & when it was dry totally, I paint it with white acrylic paints. when its done, place it in the nest then. if you will remember once I made a Paper Weight with a lump of dried dough, so while experimenting with dough making if you fail, dont worry & make a paper weight.
Its making was a bit lengthy but it was fun, I was so curious to see when the nest globe will be getting dry & I start fixing arrangements inside. but it went good finally!
Have a Great day!
