Hand Painted Robin Eggs Bird Nest Décor

These easy to make hand-painted robin eggs make for super cute springtime or Easter decor. This is a very fast craft project with most of the time coming in for drying of the eggs.

Hand Painted Robin Eggs Bird Nest Décor Notes:

• You can prime your eggs with a layer of spray paint for plastic if you like. You could also use wooden eggs and prime for a wood base. It doesn’t matter if the fake eggs are brown or white. You could use “chicken” eggs, but realize they will be larger than “robin” eggs. Do purchase plastic eggs that do not come apart for a more “realistic” look.

• While you do not have to, you may want to use a spray paint that claims it is better for plastics.

• While this is done in two shades of blue you can do any color of your choice. Some other great options would be pink, yellow, or green. While not exactly “robin” eggs in all those shades, they are very much great springtime egg colors (or Easter egg colors).

• While two different shades of blue were used for these eggs, you can do one shade, or three or four shades! It is really up to you how you’d like your egg nest to look.

• You can hot glue your nesting to the bottom of your bowl if you like.

• You can make a ton of these eggs and place them into a tall vase. Whether you choose to have the moss and nesting at the bottom alone, or in layers as you add eggs to your tall clear vase, is up to you!

• For your glass bowl – check the dollar stores or Target. You could use an old terrarium bowl, or something from delivered flowers too!

Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath DIY

grapevine wreath with dried lavender


Encourage peace and relaxation in your home by making and using this scented lavender wreath. Easy to make, this simple lavender grapevine wreath comes together in about 15 minutes.

Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath DIY

Set yourself up for summertime bliss by making this scented lavender wreath! This wreath may be made with imitation flowers, but using real lavender essential oil will make this wreath appear much more realistic, and will leave your home smelling great! Lavender oil is said to have soothing, relaxing properties which we could all use a little more of.

Although humans love the smell of lavender, bugs and insects do not like lavender oil. That makes this a wonderful wreath to use around doorways to discourage mosquitos and other pests from traveling into your house.

Notes:

• This is a 15 minute craft. It does not get much more simple than this!

• This wreath was made using floral lavender as opposed to dried lavender. You certainly can use dried lavender, but remember that doors open and close so that dried lavender will shed and drop of the spike.

• No ribbon is used in this craft. If you would like to add ribbon, consider a burlap, lavender, or purple 1½” = 2″ ribbon wrapped around the wreath. You can add a matching bow if you like!

• Remember that all craft projects are just a starting point. Add your own embellishments to make the DIY craft yours!

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial


That is the same wreath in the photo(s) above. I just placed it in different areas, some dark, some light, to show how the light and dark effects the look of the wreath. In person, it is simply stunning (truly).

First things first: sign up for my weekly newsletter! You get a free downloadable e-cookbook when you confirm your newsletter sign-up!

Notes:

• Tulle is significantly more difficult to work with than a cotton material. Keep that in mind when making this wreath.

• You want your wreath nice and full. If you skimp, you cannot hide it. So, make sure your tulle is nice and full!

• Sequin glitter tulle sheds. A lot. With that in mind, I strongly suggest you cover your work surface with a towel (or it will look like a glitter-bomb went off in your house).

• We used pipe cleaners for some texture. You could substitute feathers!

• For this wreath, we used purple and gold with a green bead and pipe cleaner accent and black mask. You do not have to use the colors as shown. Mardi Gras colors are green, purple, black, and gold, so mix and match according to your preference. Break it down like this:

2 colors tulle
1 color pipe cleaner + beads
1 color mask

• If you want the same look we did, follow the color scheme used. If you want a different look, go for it! Your best bet is to start with your mask choice, and then match the colors to that (tulle rolls are easy to find). Just remember this is a sparkling tulle wreath, so make sure one of your tulle colors glitters with sequins.

• There are several ways to do the tulle color grouping on this wreath – two alike knot colors, three alike knot colors, etc. and repeat. Ultimately, after playing around and experimenting, this wreath was created with alternating tulle knots meaning one gold, one purple, one gold, one purple (etc until finished).

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial Materials:

14″ Wire Wreath Frame
• Mask
• 1 chopstick or pencil
• 8 Green Pipecleaners
• Scissors
• Mardi Gras Beads
• 25 yards Purple Tulle (1 roll, 6″)
• 25 yards Gold Sparkle Tulle (with sequins, this may not be available in a 25 yard roll at your local fabric store, so buy as many rolls as you need to make 25 yards, 6″)
Glue Gun and Hot Glue (optional)

Glitter Mardi Gras Mask Wreath Tutorial Directions:

• Cut tulle into 5″ strips. You will get 180 strips per 25-yard roll.
• Using the 6″ side of the tulle, tie a square knot (left over right and under, right over left and under) around one of the frame times.

• Every other tie is a different color. You are alternating colors for this one. Leave the second outer row of the wreath frame empty for beads, pipe cleaners, and mask attachment.
• Push together after each knot.
• Use all 720 strips. Your wreath will be nice and full, but not squished.
• Wrap your pipe cleaners around a chopstick or a pencil to form spirals.
• Twist around the frame, and allow the curly ends to poke out through the tulle.

• Clip the ends of the beads (where the necklace meets) using scissors (to form a long strand and not a necklace). You can twist the clipped ends around the frame allowing the beads to swag down a bit. They will secure like a twist-tie would. You can use a dab of hot glue to secure in place if you like.
• Tie the mask to the frame. The mask should have ribbons on it making it simple to secure. You can dab with a bit of hot glue to hold in place.
