To make this project I first painted an aluminum watering can with white gesso just to give it a shabby look. Then I stuffed newspaper into the watering can so that the bird's nest would have something to rest on. I took some raffia and formed into a circle and stuffed into the can. I topped that with a cheap purchased bird's nest and since I was in Florida at the time, I went outside and gathered some spanish moss to add to my nest along with some tiny pieces of bark. To give it all a cohesive look, I dry brushed the nest and raffia with white gesso and tan paint.
I fussy cut some elements from Graphic 45's Time to Flourish Collection-May Flourish paper, and adhered to the can.
I found this sweet little bird in the Easter section at Michaels.
Petaloo's Botanica Blooms in lavender/purple were the perfect flowers to go with my vintage dogwoods and the G45 papers.
The Botanicas are soooo pretty!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoying a little breath of spring with me!
