Burlap Bird's Nest

The other day Leslie and I made a Burlap Bird's Nest.  While we were altering our jewelry and making rosettes, we thought why not make a large one for a bird's nest!  So, we made a large rosette and even added another strip of burlap to have it even bigger. 
How I learned to do Fabric Rosettes was watching a segment on a Studio 5:  Click here to watch.
We just added the threads of burlap to the inner part of the nest.  I also put a couple of tiny pieces of tulle in random places.
The bird and eggs I had on hand.  I got the bird at Rod Works in Utah, it is actually an ornament.
I am pretty sure that I will be making more of these soon!!!  Spring hurry up and get here!!!
