...speciman art...nests...







Figured I had to throw my hat into the speciman-art ring...

I love these little "nests"...I think I've mentioned before just how much I love the texture of burlap...

I had this frame sitting around...I just flipped the corrugated cardboard that came in it to the white side, removed the glass, marked off some measurements, got out my glue gun & went to work, twisting & gluing, twisting & gluing thin strips of burlap until I had these little guys. The "nests" themselves looked a little bare, so I tossed in a couple of faux robin's eggs.






Super-easy, super-fast, super-free spring art... oh, yeah.
