Easy Feather Easter Eggs

https://www.kreativk.net/diy-easter-nest-jars/

With the weather being in the mid twenties C this week here, thinking about Easter decor felt just right! So after ordering these cute feathers  [Please note, that this post contains affiliate links, for more info please also read my disclosure.] I got started with these easy feather easter eggs! 

 

Easy Feather Easter Eggs

First I started by blowing out 4 eggs. In case you’ve never tried this, it’s very easy and the only thing you do is poke a small hole into the top and bottom of the egg and blow out the inside. I left the top hole small and made the bottom one a bit bigger, since you won’t see that one later anyways.

I wanted the eggs to be white, but had only brown ones in the fridge, so I just painted them white after they were all ready and empty. And while the paint was on and still fresh, I stuck on the feathers.

A bit messy, but really easy! I then stuck them on a little kebap stick to be able to hold them better, and painted the rest of the egg white.

And because I don’t want to hang them on a branch, I used 4 little terracotta pots that I had at home and were painted white as well.

I filled them with white wood chips I found the other day at my local craft store.

Then I added some book page strips I had from last year when I used them for these Easter Nest Jars.

And voila! The little nests are perfect for the Easy Feather Easter Eggs!

    Katrin, oh my these feather eggs are awesome!! I love how they look! Did you flatten the feathers completely or did you leave the down bits to flutter a little? These are so amazing! What a fantastic idea!! These would actually be great for any time of year.

      Thank you Keri! No, I just pressed on the feathers as they were and the fluffy part stayed fluffy and I liked that, so that was that. I didn’t want any white paint to get on them so I left them be. I guess, if you use white eggs and glue on the feathers you could press them down nicely and that would look great as well!

    I haven’t starting making any Easter eggs this year. The idea of blowing them out is daunting but with your assurance I will give it a try. Maybe pour a glass of wine and ask hubs to help me lol.

    These eggs are beautiful, all the natural elements, clay, wood, feather and eggs. Lovely work as usual.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Feathers on Easter eggs – love it!! Easy and cute and very kreative! The little nests are the perfect place to display them; but, I do think they would look adorable on a tree too. Thank-you for this lovely post, as always.

      Yes, I can imagine them so pretty hanging on branches Ellen. But I still have something else planned for branches, so for now these stay put in these little pots 😉 I’m happy you stopped by, Thank you for that and have a lovely day!

    I guess, someone had scrambled eggs for breakfast. 🙂 Your eggs and nests look beautiful, Katrin! It sounds like you have lovely spring weather. Over here it’s a bit cooler but we’re supposed to get 21°C on Thursday.
    Have a great week!

    Absolutely lovely! I really like them – Moneypenny would love them too (in fact: she’d be thrilled by the feathers). On the other hand – I might reconsider dinner today (guess my men won’t mind omelette)…
    Have a great week,
    Marjan

    Wow, they would look stunning as a centerpiece all year Katrin. They’re gorgeous and I love the way the original color of the eggs show through in some spots. It just adds to the whole rustic-ness.

    Katrin I am left speechless. This is such a cute and original idea! There are feathers everywhere in the farm and yet I never thought to put them together. This is so clever!!
