Low-Cost High-Interest Craft Program: Wire Bird's Nest Charm

Katie Bloor works at a library that serves a population of 240 and is open just 15 hours a week, and had 29 people come to her library for a craft program.  In the words of Sheri Szymanski, "When 12% of the population turns out for a library program YOU are doing something right!"

Katie is generous in sharing details of the event at her post in the Library Think Tank Facebook group, including her bead, charms, and wire supplies shopping list. She's made it easy for you to replicate this wire bird's nest craft program at your library!

Just wanted to share my fun mother's Day program I did last night. I am from a very small Library only open 15 hours a week and from a population of about 240 people. I had 29 people come to my library last night and this is what we made.
The supplies were just bought off Amazon and were reasonably inexpensive
I just watched YouTube videos and lead the making myself.
I had my board members bring appetizers and we made a sort of a fun mother's Day night out of it!
here is one of the videos that I looked at since a lot of people are asking for you tube link
and if you scroll down I did post two pictures of my shopping cart from Amazon

Katie also printed a birthstone chart for those who wanted to chose bead colors to represent family members. And here's the How to Make a Wire Bird's Nest Pendant tutorial video by Beadaholique.
