Jell-O Flavors for the Month of June

Paris Pink

Meadow Green

Robin’s Egg Blue

A bag full of petite vintage Jell-O molds I found in a local antique mall was the inspiration for this new collection of nests.

For a couple of months I stored them in an English rose wrought iron basket on a shelf in my studio before the vision of what I could do with them came to me.

Of course, they were perfect containers for miniature nests.  Each two- to three-inch vintage aluminum Jell-O mold is used as the base of the nest and then filled with green Spanish moss.

A petite three-inch natural grapevine wreath surrounds the mold and is adorned with three petite paper posies in snow white, Paris pink, or French blue.  Coordinating hand dyed and scrunched French seam binding is tied in a floppy bow on the wreath as the finishing touch.

These are precious used on tables as individual place card holders, party favors for a baby shower, table markers, or even sweet containers for a few tiny blooms as a centerpiece on a tea table

They are absolutely perfect to hold a few pieces of decadent candy or a special gift. I think that they are so darn cute that I have them just sitting prettily on my desk right now ~ until they are all sold!

 Included with each nest is an individual card made of Bristol board, which is stained with coordinating permanent ink on the edges and embellished with a single paper posy

You may use the card for a special note to your friend or guest, or use it for a place card at an enchanting garden gathering.

 I sell these in colour coordinated sets of five in my Etsy shop, but will do larger quantities for any special event. 

Each nest is unique and each collection includes a variety of molds.  This collection is a limited edition due to the number of Jell-O molds I have currently in my studio.

As always, thanks for your visit ~ now go feather your nest!

Ciao amici,
