Spring Nest

We are finally seeing some signs of Spring around here.  The temperature is rising and the snow is melting.  I didn't get any bulbs planted last Fall so I'm not seeing tulips popping through the mulch, but, there's always next year, right?

I decided we needed a little bit of Spring inside, so I grabbed a few things and created this:
I found these eggs at the Dollar Store last year.  
I gave them a couple of coats of chalk paint that was leftover from a previous project.
An old toothbrush and some brown craft paint was used to create the speckles:
Once they were dry, I put some spanish moss in a bowl and arranged the eggs.
 Done!  
The easiest project ever and it didn't cost me a cent.
How's Spring coming along in your neck of the woods?

  4. Nicely done and it sounds like a good dollar store deal as well. The speckles make them look real (or like candy).

  7. I love a simple and free project! The idea of painting over faux eggs each year for a whole new look is brilliant, the options are endless!

  8. Super sweet, Ann! How did you create the speckles with the toothbrush? Thanks for sharing at Homestyle Gathering!

    1. The speckles were created by adding watered-down paint to a toothbrush and running my finger over the bristles, Julie. I may have to do a short video, since it's easier to show than explain!
