DIY Bird Nest Necklaces

With how busy the girls birthday party kept me I almost forgot that Mother’s Day is quickly approaching – in fact it’s this coming Sunday May 13th.  And so I realized I needed to come up with something and come up with it rather quickly!  Bird nest necklaces have definitely been trending in the jewelry department and their just so stinkin cute that I thought they would make the perfect gift.  Plus the beads allow you to personalize the necklace to the number of children/grandchildren, birth months, and more.


– Jewelry Wire (24 or 20 gage works best)
– beads, any type will work… glass, wood, pearl
– necklace chain
– jump ring

1.)  Choose the beads you want to use and string them onto the jewelry wire arranging them in a circle.

2.)  Arrange the beads and wrap wire around them until the bird nest is as full as you would like it to be.
3.)  Wrap the wire around the nest between each bead.  You can experiment with one, two or three loops.  They can be straight across the nest or at more of an angle.  Tuck remaining wire under loops underneath the nest.

4.)  You can attach a jump ring or simply use the wire to make a loop to hold the bird nest onto the necklace.  Then place the bird nest charm onto the necklace chain.  And ta-da you are done!

This project is super simple and makes a gorgeous personalized Mother’s Day present. In fact I was wearing mine yesterday and my mother-in-law asked where I got it.  When I told her I made it she was shocked!  And so I asked her if she liked it and when she replied with an enthusiastic yes I told her “Well that’s good because I made one for you for Mother’s Day!” Hehe.

    Those are so cool! Never though to make my own. I may have to do that sometime!

  6. So cool! I’ve always liked these necklaces, but have been waiting to get one until we had all our kids! If I *made* them, I could afford to keep making new ones to add an egg! 😉

    What an awesome idea this is, I’d love to do something like this for my 2 sisters although I am not at all crafty. Looks simple enough but chances are, wouldn’t turn out like yours

  12. Beth R says:

    That is absolutely beautiful. I hope I can get it to turn out just as nice as yours. Great idea
