take a few minutes to put together a bird's nest candlestick
If you can't wait for spring, or you just love shabby chic and nature-inspired items, take a few minutes to put together a bird's nest candlestick. Made from simple wood pieces and a faux nest, it can hold candles, eggs, or the decoration of your choice. Don't be intimidated; this project is easy to make and can be painted to match your decor (you can even display it outdoors).

  • Step 1

    Paint candlestick and base, and dry completely.

  • Step 2

    Using wood glue, attach the round wooden base to the bottom of the candlestick, and the bird's nest to the top. Place a book or other sturdy item on top of the nest to press the pieces together. Dry overnight.

  • Step 3

    Using the metal jump rings, attach teardrop crystal beads around the bottom of the nest (or accessorize as desired).

  • Step 4

    Fill nest with décor items, such as eggs, a small bird or a favorite collectible.

  • Step 5

    To use outdoors: coat candlestick and base with wood sealant after painting, and protect from rain as much as possible.
