I was able to get this done earlier today as I waited for the snow to clear the roads before I left for work. These would be cute to make for friends with kids. If I do it again, I will get some thicker wire. I felt like I wrapped this forever and it still makes a pretty thin nest. I would also get matching beads for the eggs, but this is what I had, repurposed from a broken necklace.
