Nesting Balls

Today I have created a bird nesting ball. I found this craft on Pinterest and I based it off of the nesting balls described on Beneath the Rowan Tree.

 

First I went through my crafting supplies and looked for some scraps.

I was able to find:

  •  yarn
  • different kinds of string
  • scraps of paper
  • and I had just brushed my cat, so lots of cat hair

I didn’t really have any wire, so I twisted 4 pipe cleaners into a beach ball shape.

Then I stuffed the items I had found into the middle of the pipe cleaners. Then I used ribbon to tie the finished product outside.

I hope it is strong enough for the birds to move it around without the ball falling! 🙂

Uh-oh Naughty Santa

After some suggestions on Etsy I am now making the Uh-oh Naughty Santa Pin as an ornament too!

I will make a new listing just as soon as I take pictures and choose some ribbon for the new ornaments. But I baked and coated them with gloss yesterday, so they are coming to my shop soon!
