Faux Birds Nest

In a Terracotta Pot

Birds will build their nest anywhere - even in a terracotta pot discarded from the potting bench.  So why not copy that for an ultra cute bit of rustic garden art?

The base of the nest is wire -  you can see the method I use to make them here.

This one is a bit bigger than my usual kind, and ends up being about four to five inches across.  Then it's lined with spanish moss, and tucked into the terracotta pot. A few branches with lichen make it look even more rustic.

The eggs in this case, unlike the wooden beads on my usual ones, are complete little wooden eggs.  I drilled through them (just like making a bead) and they're wired into the nest.

I very carefully smashed the cracked pot to make the hole bigger, and then it can be displayed on a shelf or in a corner.  Your porch would be a perfect place to show it off.
