  • Quince branches

  • Vase

  1. Begin by arranging quince branches in a vase.

  2. Affix dyed quail eggs into the bird's nest with hot glue. Attach a decorative bird to the edge of the nest with hot glue. 

  3. Bend 20-gauge floral wire in half, into an upside down U. Poke both ends of wire through bottom of nest. Attach the bird's nest to branch with the floral wire by wrapping wires around branch.

  4. Glue birds to branches, if desired, by applying hot glue to bottom of a bird and affixing it to a branch.
