Easter Driftwood Bird Nest
How to create a nice low centrepiece for the Easter table that has some staying power? Build a nest from driftwood. Where do you find real driftwood in the early spring in Toronto? You don’t! I picked a whole bunch at the cottage last summer and this hoard just satisfied my Easter craft craving.
Supplies / tools
- carpenter glue
- small driftwood pieces
- something to put in your nest (flowers, painted eggs, I had a bunch of pale blue egg candles which looked cute and I will switch for painted hard-boiled eggs the day of the family Easter brunch.
Well, this is a no brainer. Just pretend you are a bird with a bottle of carpenter glue. Lay your first circle with a bunch of the wood pieces and “close” the circle so the nest will be closed on the bottom. Criss-cross the pieces of driftwood in the way you like and glue them together. I would do one layer and then wait for half an hour so they would be secure before building on top of that layer.
lay your eggs. Happy Easter!
