Bird Nest Necklace | DIY

Saturday

Today's DIY is a bird nest necklace. It's simple to make and perfect for last minute gifts. Here's how to make it...
First, take your wire and begin twisting it around three beads to form a small cluster. These will be the eggs in the nest. After these are secure, begin wrapping the wire around the beads to make the nest. Wrap in a circular form getting wider and wider to make the nest bigger. Also, intertwine the wire throughout to fill gaps and make it more secure so to not bend out of shape. 
Once you've got the shape and size nest you want, leave 2-3 inches of the end to make a loop at the top for a chain.
Hope you enjoy this DIY! We're off to enjoy an all-day-date. Have a beautiful weekend. 
Sincerely, Kinsey
