Etceteras: bread basket bird nest

I sense that the craft world is ready to move on from winter. I’m seeing a lot of colorful projects that include pastels, flowers and delicate fabrics. I’m ready too, but before I spring into spring, I wanted to create one more winter centerpiece for my table.

This snow bird centerpiece is made out of a silver bread basket. Because I may want to use my bread basket again someday, I lined the bottom with paper and then glued down oasis and a mound of moss. I painted twigs, a branch and a green ceramic bird with white spray paint.

This little snow bird will stay warm and cozy on my dining room table until spring. As the season starts to change, I may add eggs and small flowers and use this as a spring center piece.

If I can wait that long... I may have to give this little snow bird an early spring.
