Instructions

1 Cover a flat surface, such as a table or countertop, with old newspapers.

2 Take a small handful of Spanish moss, another of dried pine needles, and another of corn silks and place them on the newspaper in front of you.

3 Mix the three ingredients together by gently tearing clumps from one handful and adding it to another. Continue to mix until they are evenly distributed into one large pile.

4 Pour about 2 tbsp liquid glue onto the pile and mix it evenly by rolling the pile around in the glue and mashing it all together with your hands.

5 Mold the pile of corn silks, Spanish moss, pine needles and glue into the shape of a bird's nest by pressing firmly in the centre to create a bowl shape.

6 Allow the bird's nest to dry. Once it is hard to the touch, spray it with some outdoor wood protecting spray and place it in your garden.
