I love the cute wire bird nest charms I have seen on many blogs including my friend, Marie's.
I thought they would make sweet little gifts for Mother's Day and made some for those
precious Mom's in my family.

1 pearl for Erin
3 pearls for Jill
5 pearls for Jamie
6 pearls for Jane
4 pearls for me
I attached each little nest to a copy of a mother-with-children piece of art using ribbon.
After using a paper punch border to fancy-up the paper edge, I glued it to a blank card.
The tiny nests can be displayed on the card or detached and worn on a chain as a necklace.
We brought my mom over for lunch and spent a few hours with her just chatting.
Our son-in-laws parents were so kind to invite us to join them for dinner at a nearby restaurant.
We were a party of 14 including Jamie's five children.
It is a special blessing to love and enjoy the company of your kids in-laws.
We share much more than our grandchildren!
I watched a few YouTube videos for making the little nests and looked at several photos.
Each technique varies a little as does the color and size of the wire and beads.
Here is a link to one of the videos I watched.
