How To Make a Magpie Nest

Creating your own bird’s nest can be as simple, or as elaborate as you want. For me it is an exercise of celebrating perfection within the imperfection, beauty amongst the chaos. I personally like to approach it with a loose treatment to achieve a more natural look, rather than tight which can appear manufactured. Momma birds construct their nests using snippets and bits containing multiple colors and textures, so when building a nest, I gravitate towards using at least three different materials (ex: sticks, twine, moss, rattan, ribbon, etc.)
