Tiny Nest HOME Sign

For this project I was looking for a neat little sign for our guest bathroom and I remembered these tiny wire nests.....

I've been making these nests for my rosette necklaces for a few years now. I've almost sold out in my Etsy shop so I'll have to make more. I love how they look with the sweet ribbon rosettes and beading. Making them isn't hard work since I enjoy them so much!

Here's a close up of the nest done in gold colored wire and the perfect freshwater pearls shaped like eggs.

For this project I turned to my handy dandy pre cut letters. A pizza box is the perfect storage solution.

I used a coupon at Joanne's to get this great selection of chipboard letters for $6.00 a few years back. This was a great buy and I've used them in dozens of projects since. Sometimes I just trace them and save the letters but this time I used letters in different fonts.....

I spray painted a frame from my stash gloss black, and also painted the mismatched letters. I tore card stock diagonally then inked and distressed the edges. I also grunged the corners and random areas for added texture.

A tiny nest of tarnished gold colored wire and three beads nestles at the bottom of the "O".

A wispy branch picked up from the yard adds a final touch of whimsy.

I grunged the edges a bit more and also grunged around the branch to make it stand out a bit. I like it. I like it alot!

Insanely Creative Christy redid this little cabinet with recycled dictionary pages, paint and twine, and the cubby at the bottom is perfect for this HOME sign. It is the perfect spot for it!

I'll be linking up to the parties in my sidebar. Come visit and check out the neat projects in blogland!
