Quick & Easy Easter Nest

Hi guys! Today I’d like to show you this Quick & Easy Easter Nest !  I love it, when I can get cute deco done in no time, with what I have, without having to go run out to the store. And that’s what was going on today here!

I was prepping my kitchen for the “not so pretty reveal”. I guess, it’s not that bad, but you’ll see eventually and decide for yourself. Part of it is this really Quick & Easy Easter Nest that happened in the moment. Aren’t those the best deco’s? I used my Oma’s old scale. I love this piece because I can decorate it for any season. So now, when I was giving my kitchen a little more attention, I figured to have a little easter nest in the scale. Perfect spot I think!

I grabbed two different types of twine or jute yarn and simply folded them into a round little nest. I added some dried laurel leaves and small, artificial eggs, that were on an old wreath before, but came off, and that was all! I think it’s quite decorative in that beautiful vintage scale and I love the natural touches of the laurel!

This is what I used plus some small yellow styrofoam eggs. I really like how it looks on the aged tin of the scale…

  2. Hi Katrin!

    I love this little Easter Nest! What a great idea and so simple (I agree the best projects!), but with such a nice affect. The placement of it on the scale is just perfect in your kitchen. Thanks for sharing how you did it and for linking up to #TALENTEDTuesday. I am featuring your Easter Nest today. 🙂
    Hope you are doing well!

  4. Thank you for being a faithful Vintage Charm party-er, Katrin! This birds nest is the sweetest; I’m so glad you brought it to the party 🙂

  5. First off, I love that scale, it is so rustic, cool looking. It really looks great in your kitchen, and the addition of the nest is so adorable. For Easter or for spring. And the fact that it’s a treasured heirloom is even better. I love that you can take home products and make them look like this! Girl, you need your own show!

    • I appreciate your sweet compliment Nikki, really I do! Thank you so much! That scale is something and has moved a lot with me and I’m glad I kept one of the few things from my family.

  6. Wow, that was an awesome Easter egg Katrin! and I also love the fact that it is easy to make and the materials are easily available. Thanks a lot for sharing the Easter inspiration.


  7. I love this! I found an old scale thrifting but it is not as rustic as yours. Thanks for giving me inspiration for using it with my Easter decor.

    • I’m happy you got inspired! That’s the BEST! Old scales are so pretty, I’d love to find another one! Thanks for visiting Sherry! 🙂

  8. I love what you did for your scale- I’m more of a natural decor girl so I loved all the texture and simplicity. 🙂

    • Hi Tina, Thanks! Same here, I love it simple and natural, as much as possible…Happy you like the Nest!

  9. Wow…this is adorable! What a simple, easy, vintage piece of decor! I love that scale, but your nest is just wonderful. Thank you for sharing! I may have to copy-cat on my own kitchen table! 😉

    • Thanks Wendi! This definitely took very little effort but makes a cute deco for the season… 🙂

  10. Katrin, that is super cute!!! Ooh I love this!!!!!!!!! Your little nest looks so fantastic on the scale too!! I always love quick and easy so you’ve got me there too! Beautiful job!!

  11. O.K. first of all Katrin, that scale…that scale…How delightful to have such a great piece that belonged first to your Oma…I’m sure you cherish it.
    Second, as usual, you have such a knack for creating beautiful very simply. That whole Scandinavian thing…you really have it down.
    I like how you used the two different types of twine, instead of just one. Really lovely.

    Hugs, Lynn
