Latest nest pins

I've been busy-busy the past few weeks and have horribly neglected my blog! So I figured I'd at least post some pics of what I was able to accomplish. I noticed that there are quite a few people doing the needle-felted bird's nests, and mine didn't really stand out from the rest very much. So, back to the drawing board (or felting foam!); I wanted to add something more, and I really like how the new style turned out.

The branches are felted over wire so they're bendy :) The eggs in this particular nest are wooden beads, and the branches have glass leaves and a glass flower. The whole thing is about 3 inches long. I had to use my newly-Ebay-won fawn as a photo prop...I almost can't stand how cute he is!! He arrived with his beautiful Mom as well...they will have a photoshoot all to themselves soon :)

I like the soft grey color of this one. The 'eggs' are white glass pearls, and the branches have more glass flowers and leaves sewn on. This one's a bit bigger at 3.5 inches across at the longest point.

My long weekend is over and it's back to work at my dayjob tomorrow. I wish I could do this stuff all day! I hope everyone enjoys their week, bye for now!
