    Clean the jar with window cleaner.

  • 2 Add some moss

  • 3 Add more moss & beads

    Glue some moss into the nest. Shape the beads into ovals, arrange and glue them inside the nest.

  • 4 Cut twig ends

    Cut some of the twig ends off of the nest so it fits inside the jar.

  • 5 Add a butterfly

    Glue a butterfly to one side of the nest.

  • 6 Cut & ink paper
