My girlies are attending VBS this week....vacation Bible school, and
it was crazy hair day so I attempted a couple bird nests. Super easy to
do......just backcombing, hairspray, bobby pins and a bird. I also used
some lace and twine.
Make a pile of backcombed hair on the top of the head and use bobby pins to secure it all in place. In the center of that pile use a couple bobby pins to create a dip then place a bird in that dip. The birds I used had clips on them so they just clipped right into place, if your bird does not have a clip just glue a clip onto it the night before to give it time to dry. On the left girls hair I used a couple bobby pins and put some small pieces of twine in the nest as well as a piece of lace and on the right girls hair I wrapped the entire nest in twine and lace. Super cute!

To me shabby chic is all about textures, girly, vintage, worn looking, layers.......and you can go really crazy with it or really subtle. I am more in the middle if not slightly towards the more subtle but I love touches of it throughout my home. A great way to do this is through DIY. That way you can make it look exactly how you want and not to mention save some money by finding things to alter at garage sales or thrift stores. Below I have listed what I used to decorate the jar above just in case you were curious. Have fun and be creative!
vintage bottle, interesting paper scraps, lace, paper flower,
key(or interesting hangable embellishment),chain, split
ring, pliers and really good glue.
