Pussy Willow Nest

Steps:3
This time of year, birds instinctively put the materials at hand to good use. Here, the downy, gray catkins of pussy willow branches soften a densely woven nest, while dried grasses inside cushion fragile decorated eggs. A trail of feathers suggests that the winged occupant has just taken flight.
Materials
  • Pussy Willow branches
  • 24-gauge brown wire
  • 10-inch wire wreath
  • Plant cutters
  • Dried grass
  • Feathers
  • Decorated eggs
