Spring Robin

Finished up this sweet robin today. It will be listed on my website for sale in a little while.

I wanted to have have her sitting in a nest and didn't know where to get such a thing, so I made one!! I think it turned out pretty cool!!

I first started with bark covered wire, attached some old cotton batting, then weaved in and out some twine, added some excelsior, Spanish moss, sheet moss, and some twigs from my yard. I found a branch in my back yard that was in the shape of a "Y" and attached the nest to that. It was actually pretty fun trying to make a nest!
