You can make these darling nests for a number of occasions such as Bridal and Baby shower in appropriate colors, along with the pins or magnets as shown. It is also said that a nest in your Christmas tree will bring good luck as mentioned in the following: Legend of the Bird Nest According to an old German legend, “if you find a bird nest in the tree you harvest for Christmas, you will have an entire year of health and happiness. We hope you will tuck this nest in one of the branches of your tree with all the best wishes of the old legend”. These nests are needle felted by Foxglove Studios so check out this tutorial and there is a PDF file you can download with instructions for needle felting these nests. Foxglove Studios also has an ETSY shop.
