Nesting

I know that I promised an Easter gift idea and I swear it’s still coming…….. but I can’t seem to get the decorative tag just right, so when I do it’s all yours. In the mean time I couldn’t wait to show off my latest obsession.

It started with a  home made paper mache  mixture, tissue paper, and a few plastic eggs super glued together.

My son doesn’t love to have his hands super messy (I know he’s a boy what’s up with that right?) but he still had fun creating his own eggs.

I let them dry for about 24 hours. Then with some sticks, twigs, a tumbleweed, and yep that’s right hot glue I made some nests for these little guys.

Put it all together and you’ve got…….

And here is my Son’s version (he refused to leave out any eggs lol)

  1. So cute! I've seen some tumbleweeds around here that would look perfect with those! ;) Although, I think my husband would wonder what's gotten into me for bringing a tumbleweed into the house! ;)

  2. So cute! I wish I were crafty like that. I have a 6 month old though so it's hard to find time!

  5. So sweet! Love the nest idea. Aren't the ones kids make almost more perfect in their imperfection? Have a very Happy Easter!

  8. Very cute nests and eggs! I love that you made them with your son, My six year old is begging me to dye eggs with him today...I think I'm egged out! :)

    Thanks for stopping by our blog!

  9. I thought you were going to tell me you made your sweet wall hanging above the table, I was totally impressed . . . but the nest is sweet too and so very cute :) If I get ambitious this week I will have to make some with my boys. Cohen has been telling me for weeks we need easter decorations or else the easter bunny won't come :)

  10. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I really like the natural nest. Where did you get the twigs/tumble weeds?

    ReplyDelete
  11. LOL I love your son's version! I can't believe you made those, you are so creative! This would be a great craft to try with the kids.

  17. Hi! I just came from SITS and I love this little tutorial. My daughter is only one so I don't think she'll get this but I think I'll definately do it next year with her.

  18. Great post. Great pictures. Enjoy your day. Very creative, you are.

  19. Just found you through SITS - love the eggs the NESTS were very GOOD! WOW... looking back I see I missed a good post on mint oreos (I need to go back an read up!)

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is too cool! The problem is that one of mine would try to eat the glue and the other would try to glue everything else! This would have to be an outside craft!

    Happy SITS Day!

  22. I like this! So totally doable with my 5 year old son (who doesn't like to get his hands dirty either). I'm egg dyed out but this is cool. Decorating is tonight at my SIL's house with all the little kids so I might just have to take this craft along.

  27. The nest with the purple eggs is so sweet - and your child's nest is even sweeter! This project would make a nice table centerpiece for a spring brunch - especially on several small tables.

  28. stopping by from SITS....I am making the eggs tomorrow with my daughter! We have a ton of super ugly plastic eggs...what a great way to make them gorgeous! Thanks for the fun Easter/spring idea :)

  33. I love the nests - so delicate! My daughter and I haven't even gotten to the egg dyeing yet. So far, she's got her Easter dress on for our self-imposed Fashion Friday for our Music Class! And that's about it!

  34. Love it! Can't believe you made those nests. Tumbleweed... we don't have much of that here in Pennsylvania but I bet store-bought Spanish Moss would work for me. Great job!
