I did something that sounds similar using diluted white glue, drier lint, and scraps of wool. We used old margarine containers as the "mold" and patted the glue soaked materials around the inside to make a nest shape

When it was dry, it popped out nicely. I imagine shredded wheat would work too (as long as it doesn't get too mushy?)

The only word of advice I have is to not make the nest too thick or it takes forever to dry. If you do want a thick nest, you're better off doing it in two layers and letting it dry overnight in between

I hope that helps! Leanne
