Bird's Nest Candy Dish


  • 4 grapevine wreaths, in graduating sizes
  • Floral wire
  • Spanish moss
  • Tea-dyed goose and duck eggshells
  • Loose feathers
  • Candy
  • Paintbrush
  • Black acrylic craft paint
  • Fake pheasants


  1. Step 1


    Stack the wreaths for a dense-looking nest. Use wire to join them together. Fill the bottom of the nest with moss, and scatter eggshells inside, some cracked and others whole.

  2. Step 2


    Scatter feathers in and around the nest. Fill the nest and some of the cracked shells with candy.

  3. Step 3

    Use paintbrush to apply paint to birds' heads; let dry. Arrange birds on and around the nest, using the wires on their feet to help them stand.
