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 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 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.

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 $1 thrift store cabinet with recycled
dictionary pages, paint and twine, and the cubby at the bottom is
perfect for this HOME sign. It is just the right spot!
