Cut poster board into circles about the size of a quarter. Cut yarn into 1/4″ pieces. For each bird nest you will need about 1 heaping tablespoon of cut up yarn. Mix in about 1/2 teaspoon of tacky glue. Roll yarn and glue mixture together to form a ball. Add more glue if necessary. Flatten ball a little. Press thumbs into the middle to make the nest shape. Set on top of a circle of Poster Board. Let dry overnight.
Use small pieces of Flour/Salt Dough to make tiny eggs. Use glue gun to attach them in dry nests. Glue a pin on the back. If you are using optional SWAP tags, write your message on the tag and slide onto the pin. Close pin.
