Brown Sack Easter Nest

I saw this nest in the Country Living magazine and thought I would try my hand at it. 
Supplies needed:
Bowl the size that you want your nest
Brown paper sack
Saran wrap
Mod Podge
Scissors

Cut your brown paper bag into thin strips and of varying lengths.  It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Put some Mod Podge in a bowl and throw the paper strips in and toss until they are coated thoroughly.  {It’s gonna be messy!}

Wrap your upside down bowl in plastic wrap and start laying the strips around it to form a base.

At this point I was being very neat and realized it wasn’t going to be messy like a bird’s next.

After you get the base it all covered, take the remaining paper strips and jump glop then on the base.  Spread around until it looks messy and let it sit to dry for 12 hours.

Then, my friend, is a wonderful bird’s nest!

Fill it with some Easter grass and some pretty eggs and your all set!

I LOVE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT!
This would be a project that the kids would love helping with!
