Vine Bird nests


Vine Bird Nests

August 31, 2011

I was looking at some crafting sights the other day on Facebook and came across how to make decorative twine balls. Well I am big on needing something to be functional to even bother with it and on top of that we have a love for nature so we improvised and came up with making Vine Bird Nests.




First you drag the kids out of the pool… or at least I had too! Then you give them a balloon and some non-poisonous vines.  I was worried to death they would grab some poison ivy and start working with it! That would NOT have been good!



Stewart took and clipped some Muscadine vines for the kids to use to keep me from being a worry wart.




This is Anna’s “This stupid thing won’t twist right!” face!




“Now, that’s better!”




After you put the vines around the balloon the way you want to then just pop the balloon and ta-dah

a bird nest looking bird house made from vines.




“A Hat!”

I have already told Anna when she gets married we are going with the whole “Robin Hood Prince of Thieves” wedding and decorating all natural!




Yep, like this! She loves the idea!





Adam made sure he put a perch on his for the little bird to land on!




“Austin, it may not be the best idea to have it smelling like a cat! The birds sure won’t appreciate that!”




Naturally, if I was a bird I would want to live in something made from nature, it would just seem natural !
