this was a very simple project. i took my little ones little tykes sand box and emptied it(she never played in it). i painted the entire sand box flat black.i then sprayed great stuff foam all over it,especially on the rim.then i started placing twigs and branches all around the rim.this took alot of free branches! the great stuff expands a little and holds the limbs.i then sprayed about 4 cans of foam all over the whole nest.this was optional! i then sprayed flat paint all over the nest. i then painted some lg eggs that i got at the dollar store.i painted them black and forrest green .i then added a few buzzard props i had got over the years.big lots sells them for $25 a pc. hope you like the nest. you could make the nest useing a cheap plastic pool to. the prop with the branches is around 4' all around.sorry i didn't have any of the actual build pics.
