If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know how much I love to upcycle paper bags. I have created a few paper baskets for Easter this way. And now Meagan has come up with this really cute paper bag bird nest that you can recreate using our tutorial.
This is an easy craft project that is also kid-friendly since you can use white glue or a glue stick.
The tweetest Easter craft
Our paper bag bird nest would make really cute table decor. Or you could even use it as a little treat basket at each place setting. Along with adding some candies to our birds nests, we styled them with some crepe paper tulip magnolias and the pear branch from one of our Member Make projects.
Crafting tip: The more paper strips you use and weave in, the stronger your nest will be.
