DIY Easter Nest Jars

Today I’m sharing another fun Easter deco! DIY Easter Nest Jars ! I had seen this idea of hanging an egg on to a little stick and place it inside a jar in a German magazine, when we were in Munich not too long ago and I really liked it! It’s right my style, so simple and I think its just fun for this holiday coming up next week!

In the magazine, the jar was empty, just with the eggs hanging from the stick, which looked really nice as well. But I made lots of book page Easter grass the other day and after using it  for my marbled easter eggs I still had some left and figured, one can never have enough nests around the living room this time of year! I used two bigger empty jars that I filled with the book page Easter grass. The previously painted white wooden sieve served me as a little tray for the jars.  I still also had two of the blown out eggs from the other day and painted them over, just a little bit, with white paint.  

Then came the tricky part. The eggs I’ve seen in the magazine, were dyed, but I really wanted to use my spring bird stamps, remember, I also made these baking mold magnets with them. The stamps are just so cute and perfect for the season! So I picked two that I thought would be easy to press onto the egg, since it’s not a flat surface. Well, that took me a while, I had to gently rubb out and try again and again….several times. But I really wanted to pull off this look and at one point I was ok with the not~perfect stamp on the egg! Still pretty though and even a little vintage looking!

I then needed to tie the yarn around the small stick and push it into the top hole of the egg. A little fiddling is required here because you want the egg to be hanging on the yarn, so the little stick has to be horizontal inside the egg. 

After that, I tied the other end of the yarn around the bigger stick. Then I just placed the stick on top of the jar and got my DIY Easter Nest Jar !

    Looking at all of your ideas really makes me wish I didn’t have a little fellow that would pull everything off of our ottoman because that looks really cute! Maybe something I could incorporate on our dining room table.

      Awww…I remember when my girls were that age…all was up up unreachable, lol! On the dining room table is a great idea, I bet they’d look great! Thanks Candace! 🙂

    Katrin, these turned out really cute. I love the different tones of white, in your perfect Scandinavian living room. And the stamps really turned out beautiful. I have never blown out an egg, but my mom did it when we were young and it really wasn’t the easiest thing to do. I’m impressed, but even more so, I am impressed by the fact you were able to stamp the eggs in their fragile state, after being blown out! And then to not break the egg as you attached it to the branch and string, you amaze me! These turned out so adorable and I love the stamps you chose. Happy Spring!t

    • Katrin
      21/03/2016 at 22:13

      It was quite a challenge getting the stamp on them, but it worked and even though it didn’t turn out perfect, oh well! that’s the kinda stuff I like! Thanks for stopping by Nikki, Happy Spring to you!!!

    Katrin, i love these stamped eggs!! I’m glad you persevered with the stamps because they look awesome on the eggs!! I like the hanging egg in a jar look!!! And of course you can never have too many of the book page nests!!! You’re doing an amazing job decorating for Easter!! 🙂

    • Katrin
      17/03/2016 at 09:50

      Thanks so much Keri, I’m happy you like these! It was so tricky getting the stamp on the egg and have it look fine, but at the end it didn’t have to be perfect either…:)

    I love the stamps, and the hanging eggs. It’s the kind of Easter decor you could keep all year round and would still be pretty!

    If you have time, I would love for you to come and share this post over at the Really Crafty link party that is live right now! (http://keepingitrreal.blogspot.com.es/2016/03/welcome-to-the-really-crafty-link-party-10.html).

    • Katrin
      17/03/2016 at 09:28

      Yes, that’s true Teresa, you could hang something else in there instead of the egg and keep it up all year! Great idea! Thanks 🙂

    Katrin, these are just wonderful…When I saw them on your email, I was immediately taken with how unique and really cool these are. And they are so your style…the white wash, branches…they just really say “Katrin made me”. I would imagine that stamping on a round surface is a challenge, but you pulled it off masterfully! Well done again my friend.

    Hugs, Lynn

      16/03/2016 at 12:30

      Thank you my friend, I’m happy you like them as well Lynn. These stamps really call me and yes, I guess it is absolutely my style, I just can’t help it, I like simple and sometimes it might be a bit boring. That’s what Stella said to me the other day, lol. Mami, your style is not flashy enough sometimes. Oh well, I had to smile. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    Ohh Katrin! This project for Easter is the best one yet! I love the clean look paired with the stamps that very much look vintage. And the wood on top holding them gives it such a special look. This one is so … I don’t even have the words for it. Everything about it is perfect. The black and white theme and the wood on top. I’ m so glad you were able to pull this off.

    • Katrin
      16/03/2016 at 12:27

      Aww Mary that’s so so sweet of you to say! I love the clean look, you know that already, and these stamps really have been in good use over the past. I have to look for more stamps, I might have a new addiction! 🙂
