Egg-cellent DIY

egg-cellent titleSpring time Egg-cellent time for DIY projects.

Last spring, a mother bird decided that my flower box would make the perfect location for her nest.  We loved watching the whole process and was just amazed to witness the mother’s dedication.

I was inspired to decorate this spring with natural elements.

So I started where I always go…Pinterest.

An Egg-cellent DIY craft.

Eggs

These fantastic sites were “egg-actly” what I needed to get started.

wooden eggs txtI pulled out wooden eggs, that I had picked up last year from my local craft store on clearance.  They were just waiting for the right project.

paintI had leftover milk paint, which are the desired colors.

eggsI painted the three sizes eggs, three different colors.

Once they were dry, it was time for the speckles.

I diluted dark brown craft paint with water & then used an old toothbrush to create the character.

Finally, I hit them with a clear coat to add a tab of shine and protection.

The Nest

Nests are so amazing.  The detail and precision those parent bird put into the safe haven for their eggs is incredible works of art.  Take the time to really look at one.

After the baby birds left the nest last year, I gathered it up.  I have kept it safe since.

It made the perfect setting for my 4 small eggs and a porcelain baby bird I had picked up at Renningers.

medium eggs

I used a vintage strawberry basket to hold this nest.

Using the Stone Gable website for inspiration, I  created a few more nest. With Spanish moss, twigs, and green moss to creating my own cozy version of nests.

large eggs

I layered shredded paper bags, Spanish moss, & green moss in an apothecary jar. Then placed the large eggs inside.        Perfect fit.

Enjoy the Spring time.  Check out my Pinterest page for other ideas I have pulled together.

Would love to hear from you, so leave me a message below.
