recycled paper spring nest I've got a fun spring tutorial for you today!  It's an easy to make nest out of recycled paper and Multi Medium[1]. By using Multi Medium[2] instead of white glue you can create this nest using less layers of paper! Makes for a very quick project!  
Here are a few little birdies from my Paper Bird Printable kit[3] looking right at home sitting in the nest!You can also use your nest for Easter eggs too! Read on to see how I created mine!
Shred old book pages and brown paper bag in your shredder. Cover a bowl with plastic wrap. I didn’t have any plastic wrap so I used a plastic grocery bag and it worked great!

Apply Multi medium to your surface and glue on shredded papers

Continue until you’ve covered the bottom of the bowl and little bit of the sides. Once you have a smooth layer of shredded papers on, add a final coat of multi medium and sprinkle on another layer of shredded papers so that it give the outside a messy birds nest look.

Paint a few craft store wooden eggs to place inside! Here I painted eggs using Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints in Blank Canvas, Painterly Pink, Dash of Red, Yellow Pastel and Sky Blue mixed with Classic Teal
