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…

    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!

    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!

    • Katrin
      07/03/2016 at 21:57

      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.

    Katrin I had to do a double-take with those pretty eggs I thought they were real! The whole composition comes together beautifully. The twine complements your Oma’s scale perfectly. And of course we love easy but when it is this gorgeous we should not tell. 😉

    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
