Springtime Nests

I have had so much fun making these and this time I made them spring time nests. I used many new types and colors of wool to give the effect of fresh moss, dried little twiglets and spring time colors. And this time I added a new little idea and twist to the nests which I came up with while I was working on…

This lovely garland is made of paper hearts, hand punched from the pages of book about King Edward III. Each little heart is 1" across, and there are 100 of them on approximately 9.5' of thread. They have been run through my sewing machine and there is enough thread at the end of each garland to tie together or hang up. There are 3 garlands here. That's almost 30 feet of decorations! Don't forget the matching confetti!! https://www.etsy.com/listing/122733138/heart-confetti-book-page-confetti…
