Many years ago, when I used to be a florist, I used to fill my shop with easter nests like these. They are really fun and easy to make.

You will need:
Flower pot
Ivy - I always use real Ivy, but you could use artificial.
Bird's nest
  1. Fill a pot with dirt and plant a couple of ivy strings in it.
  2. Remember to water if you're using real ivy.
  3. Then place a birds nest on top, you can find these at your local flower market.
  4. Twirl the ivy around the nest and hold it in place with some small pieces of this metal wire.
  5. Place a beautiful egg in the middle.


Nothing says Spring and Easter to me like this.
