I was out walking in the neighborhood and the streets are lined with trees. The trees are pretty bare still and I saw so many cute bird's nests. My mom, who is a bird lover, told me that they do not come back to their old nests. After that, I reached up and snagged one, took it home and shook the bird poopy out of it then sprayed it with a clear coat. It turned out so pretty. The only thing I would suggest doing is spraying it with spray adhesive first so that it stays together better. My friend Elise loves nests as well and they are hard to find. I am going to take my ladder out and get one for you too Elise!
