Bedspring Bird Nest

I was roaming though my past photos and I found this picture
of a bird nest bedspring thingy that I made several months ago.
At the time I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, but I put it in my
booth anyways and it didn't take long to sell so someone must
have liked it. lol.

To me it just looked like a mess. ha!
I used purchased nests with eggs , greenery and all
and then added paper shred underneath them and
fastened them to an old bedspring that I wrapped
tea dyed muslin around.
I think I was feeling a little crazy the day I made it!! :)

I did fasten the nest tag to it with ribbon at the bottom,
but forgot to take a finished photo. What do you think? I am trying to decide whether to make more or just leave
well enough alone. :) I am also thinking there should
probably be a bird somewhere...oh well.

I love it! I am amazed at your boundless creativity! I don't doubt that your other one sold. If you like it, many others do too. Definitely!

Sandi this is too cute. I would have never thought to wrap the coil itself! What a genius you are!!! No wonder it sold is so unique.

This is so cute Sandi! What a creative idea! We had some old bedsprings left behind by the previous owner of our home. We tossed them out, wish I had kept them! The addition of a little birdie would be the icing on the cake! Have you thought of spray painting the springs rather than wrapping them in the fabric? It might be less work. Just a thought :)
