The Robin's Nest - A Sparkly Blue & White Christmas

Christmas is my favorite time of year... I love the music, decorations, all the lights, special cookies, and the occasional snow.  Most of all I love Christmas crafts!  
Today I have made a wreath with AWESOME Robin's Nest papers from the Russian Winter Collection and a lot of glitter!

To make the wreath cut paper into 4 inch squares, make into cones using double stick tape. With craft glue add silver glitter to the rims of each cone, let dry. 
Once the cones are dry fold the tip down about one inch from the bottom .  Adhere the cones to the foam base with craft glue, lining up the fold with the center of the wreath (small straight help keep the cones in place), let dry.  Glue down the tips of the cones in the center of the wreath straight pins help to hold in place). Add a ring of glue around the inside of the wreath and sprinkle with glitter. 
When finish embellish the wreath, here we have a simple birds nest.
