Bird Nest Bobby Pin Tutorial

     
Remember the itty bitty birds nest tutorial I posted here?  Well, it was so fun that I made a few of them and have been wondering what to do with them...

 I saw these little bobbypins with the little bail on them at Hobby Lobby, and immediatly thought of the little birds nests. 


All you need is the pack of bobby pins from Hobby Lobby, a couple of the itsy bitsy birds nests, and some good glue (E-6000, gorilla glue, or even hot glue).
  



Glue the nests onto the little bail & wait about 20 minutes.  That's it!  They also meet my 3 favorite craft criteria - cute, quick, & cheap!
