How to Make the Bird's Nest Candy Dish
- 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.
- Scatter feathers in and around the nest. Fill the nest and some of the cracked shells with candy.
- 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.
