Crochet Bird Nest

I just made another attempt to help the birds. Its now springtime and they are all over the place trying to find a place to nest. I have only one tree in my back yard and its huge! It is full of birds of all types and its fun to watch them from my kitchen window. However, there are still some that refuse to nest in the trees and want to use parts of the house, plants, and even my car. I can leave for 3 days and come back to a dove nest on the hood of my car. They are so silly.


While looking on Pinterest the other day, I found a really cute bird nest. You can find the pattern HERE. I just knew I had to make one of these and see if it really works. I followed the instructions, but for some reason, it did not come out looking as beautifully egg formed as hers.




Its ok though. I kind of like the "gourd look" or "Pear shape" that mine took shape of.


I carefully placed it on a limb, hidden deep inside the tree and now I will wait to see if I get any renters on this unique home. I do not know how well it will hold up in the rain but hopefully the thickness of the shrub around it will protect it from damage. So far it has withheld strong winds.



I hope to get an update for you all in a couple months. Meanwhile, Ill stick to making hats.

    1. No birds yet. I hope they find it soon and get out of my window seals. Lol

  2. I've only camped once and it wasn't the best experience ever. I think this was due to the nature of the experience. If I'd had a nice caravan or bigger tent, I would have found the experience much more enjoyable. I intend to go caravanning one day as it's on my bucketlist!
