This natural nest was found in late Fall well after the nesting season in a thicket of briars across from our home.

This creation measures 11" long by 7 1/4" wide, and is 6 1/2" high. I baked the nest and Staghorn Sumac branches (the non-toxic type), in the oven to make sure that they were both bug-free before gluing the nest to the branches. Both items were also well coated with satin polyurethane.

When my husband got his Winter boots out of the shed for the season, to my utter delight we found a squirrel's secret hidden stash of hickory nuts filling the bottom of one of his boots! If I only knew where that tree is located...LOL!

After baking the nuts I decided to use a few of them for "eggs" in keeping with the natural flow of this creation. They have been sprayed lightly with varnish sealer. Faux pine was added for a bit of woodland evergreen.

This creation would make a beautiful centerpiece for your dining or coffee table as it is captivating in its natural simplicity...

NEST DETAIL: The interior of this nest was made out of dried grasses and some delicate fibrous roots, then surrounded by more dried grass, leaves, twigs, a bit of grapevine, and even some thin strips of plastic!

BRANCH DETAIL: The Sumac branch (which is the non-toxic type), has a beautiful design on the surface of its bark created by bracket fungus. Bracket fungus attaches itself to dead trees gradually breaking the wood down into rich organic soil.
