To make a miniature birds nest you will need:

  • PVA (white) glue
  • Preserved Reindeer Moss in a natural beige color if possible
  • Embroidery Thread in a dried straw or wood color. The one used here is a flax thread from DMC.
  • Round Bead the diameter you want the interior of your nest to be.
  • Cling Film food wrap or thin plastic to keep the nest from becoming glued to the bead.
  • Fine Sharp Scissors

To Make Miniature Bird's Eggs:

  • Polymer Clay in your choice of colors
  • Sharp Craft Knife
  • Tile or disposable aluminium dish to bake the clay on.
