Bird Nest DIY

DIY Wedding Idea “Love Birds” 3 of 3


Todays DIY wedding idea is these bird nests are so cute and also versatile depending on what size and shape you make them! They can be used to hold the favors, programs, bridesmaid gift basket, flower girl basket, or even for a dessert table display like we did. We used both a bowl and a plate, but we are sure you can find other items to use as well! Use some candlesticks to create different heights and you are starting to think real creatively.


1. Shredded paper bags(about one per nest)
2. Bowl for glue mixture
3. Bowl for the nest mold
4. Clear school glue
5. Plastic wrap

Step 1

Cover the bowl used as the mold with plastic wrap.

Step 2

Mix the glue with equal parts water.

Step 3

Dip the shredded paper into the glue mixture, then pat
it onto the mold covering it completely. Then add a few dry shredded paper on top to make it have the messy nest look.

Step 4

Allow to dry for 24-48 hours.

Step 5

Remove nest from bowl once it is dry.
