This little wee bird nest is a lovely decoration for the seasonal table and is so easy to make. You can follow the tutorial for the felted stones but instead of stones we use a ping pong ball this time. Click here for the complete tutorial.
After your felted ball is completely dry you carefully make an incision in the middle of the ball with a pair of scissors and you cut around the ball. Now you have two small bird nests. The inside of the nests can be a bit fluffy and can be smoothened with a felting needle.
For the eggs you fold the edges of a small piece of wool roving to the center
and wrap it with a small tuft of wool roving into a small ball.
Now follow the same instructions as for the felted stones but make an egg shape by rolling the balls between your hands before you let them dry.
Enjoy this lovely symbol of spring!
