So cute! These nests are so easy and inexpensive to make and really add something special to Easter and spring decor!

I was playing  around with a few different Easter decor ideas recently when I was getting set up for the Easter home tour that I’m putting together and I came up with this really simple idea that I thought was actually pretty clever too, if I do say so myself! :)

I ended up reusing quite a few things that I already had in the house for my Easter decorating needs this year, but I did pick up a few new things too. Once I got home, I was looking around online at a few inspiration pictures and I realized that some little nests would be so cute in a few different places. You can usually find little twig nests at craft stores, and although some of them can be a bit expensive, you can find cheaper ones too. I thought a set of eight or so would be a good investment and something I’d probably reuse in one way or another every Easter. BUT, I really didn’t want to waste any time running all the way back into town just for some nests. I actually don’t really shop all that often, so when I do, it’s kind of a big deal and not something I make time for everyday. So, I kind of resigned myself to the fact that the nests would have to happen next year, and I’d have to come up with something cute with what I had on hand. And then I had a nest-piphany!

I took one of the packages of moss that I had bought to use as filler here and there and started to kind of mold it into a nest shape. And it worked! Gloriously! I think these were so successful because of the type of moss that I happened to pick up. It’s kind of got these long, twisty strands that lock together nicely the more you coax them into shape. And it also happened to be the cheapest kind of moss at the craft store! Here’s the label…
