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 !
What do you think? I’m really loving the stamps and how this turned out and think they are just perfect for Easter!
