  • leather lace in one color, you’ll need two pieces about 52 inches long each for the bigger bird and about 40 inches long for the smaller bird. I bought mine on Etsy because I needed a lot, but you also find some at your local bead store
  • contrasting leather lace, 20 inches long each or so ( two pieces )
  • Wire – I used thin copper wire as it is easy to handle but you could get thicker wire to make the nest sturdier
  • unfinished wood ring 2 inches diameter
  • unfinished wood beads – I used 16mm beads for the small birds, 20mm beads for the medium birds and 25mm beads for the big birds. You will need 16 beads per bird
