If you are looking for something to do with your little birdies these school holidays, why not get your craft on.
If you are all clever and an over-achiever you can even create your own felt flowers, but to the rest of us the creation of a crown will be enough!

Shut. The. Back. Door.
Hello, it’s DIY Guess Who. I kid you not!
The site shows you exactly what you need to make your very own version. Make sure you add Uncle Frankie, the crazy drunk and cousin Susie who smells funky.
You are so welcome Nesters.
I, myself am capable of brilliant DIY. Like for example yesterday, I made my toddler-bird a jam sandwich. Yep all by myself.
To some people though, they like making actual pretty stuff (sorry jam sandwich).
Here is one such example.
The gorgeous Burkatron DIY Rope Shelf is perfect! It is pretty and useful and easy enough to do on a lazy Saturday arvo.

I LOVE jewellery, but storing it can be a real pain in the neck(lace).
This fantastic idea from Emily Henderson allows you to channel your inner DIY goddess (I know she is lurking in there somewhere..) and create something pretty, practical and precious.
These gorgeous jewellery blocks are a fabulous way to store all your pretties in one location, on display and easily to access.
Happy crafting Nesters!
There are two types of present-giver people in the world (according to my completely fabricated and unsupported scientific survey).
The first being, the smack-a-tenner-in-an-envelope-and-write-their-name-in-lipstick-because-you-can’t-find-a-pen-in-the-bottom-of-your-handbag type of person and secondly the Martha-Stewart-planned-for-months-and-wrapped-beautifully-even-know-where-the-reciept-is-in-case-they-need-to-exchange type of giver.
While embarrassingly I more often fall towards the first option I strive for more Martha Stewart type moments.
You could even get the little-birdies involved.

Admittedly, it is a nice touch to put that little bit more effort in.. Maybe keep it in mind for a rainy school holidays day?
Let us know how you go!
So, unless you were born with particularly large ears you may be feeling a little left out this time of year, but rest assured, The Central Nest has got your back (or.. actually ears).
Check out this completely easy, completely cool way to make bunny ears for all the peeps in your life.
Buzzmills have put together an awesome how-to tutorial on how to make Paper Bunny Ears for everyone (even those of us who are as co-ordinated as a Labrador, on ice, wearing mittens) – trust me you can’t stuff this up.
Happy Easter Nesters!
I have a confession to make. I am an absolute sucker for Peter Pan collars.
I’m not so sure exactly why I love them so but I really, really do.
Plus – you know.. all the cool kids are doing it (check out DKNY (right), Giambattista Valli (centre), and Louis Vuitton)
So because most of us do not have the coin (or enough combined creditcards that the husband won’t find out about) to purchase Louis Vuitton’s latest pieces here is a great DIY made by the fabulous team at HonestlyWTF.
Happy creating my little stylish Nesters x
