Paint Me Plaid: Guest Blogger Malia Karlinsky (Yesterday on Tuesday)

It’s March and that also means it is National Craft Month. Since this month is all about celebrating crafts, we also wanted to celebrate people who craft. All month long we will be introducing you to some craft bloggers. We here at Paint Me Plaid love to showcase the amazing crafts that other craft bloggers create, but in addition to showing off their crafts we want to spotlight the crafter as well. Today we have a guest blogger, Malia, from Yesterday on Tuesday.

Happy National Craft Month, everyone! March is here and Spring has (almost) sprung. When I think of spring, I think of birdies chirping and sweet little nests. It’s easy and fun to make your own cute nests with some simple supplies including Mod Podge.

Paper Bag Nests

Supplies: Cling Wrap, Mod Podge, paper lunch bags, a small bowl and a paper shredder!

Cut some strips out of the paper bags 1 1/2-2 inches thick

Meanwhile shred up some paper lunch sacks

Cover the bowl with Cling Wrap

Using a foam brush, paint Mod Podge on the paper strips and press around bowl to make the nest shape. Nest dab Mod Podge on empty spots and gently press paper shreds in

Let it dry overnight

To separate the bowl and nest gently peel back Cling Wrap. Trim top of nest.

Nesty goodness.

Then you get to feather your nest…

With a bird… (Dollar Store find)

Easter candy…

Or there’s always eggs!
