Bird's Nest Christmas Gift

Here is a cute Christmas craft I found on Tip Junkie.....

Just go to your local craft store and buy some Spanish moss and some little bird's eggs. They are together in the same aisle. Take a large handful of the Spanish moss and break it away from the rest. Shape that amount into a bird's nest with your hands, tucking in any loose pieces, and making an indentation in the center so it looks like a nest.Next, use your hot glue gun to glue three little eggs in the nest. Print out this saying on your computer and tear around the edges to make it look old. Ink the edges, or burn the edges with fire.

An Old Christmas Legend
Long ago, great happiness and good fortune came to those who chose a Christmas tree with a bird's nest in its branches.  Here is a little nest for your Christmas tree.  May the legend come true for you.

Tuck your paper in the bird's nest and voila! You've got a cute little ornament to place in the crook of your Christmas tree. I give these out as gifts, and to present that, I place the bird's nest in a clear gift bag (also found at the craft store in the bag and tissue paper section) and tie it with a ribbon.

I bought a bird's nest with this saying 37 years ago and lost the poem. Thanks for helping me find it!My little bird and its nest is among my very favorite ornaments!

I'm making several little bird's nests for gifts this year. I hope that everyone who receives one will treasure it as much as I do mine.
