Happy Monday, everyone! I’ve got a simple, seasonal craft for you today. I was inspired by all the pretty spring displays I’ve been seeing on Pinterest and other blogs lately, so I decided to make something of my own. Our family room is a work in progress, and one of the things I have yet to do is paint the dark brown wood of the mantel. I’m also working on pictures and accessories, so our mantel has had a hodge podge of stuff on it for the last several weeks that doesn’t match at all. Nothing a trip to Jo-Ann’s wouldn’t fix! I’ll share what the mantel looks like later, but for now, here’s how I made this “nesting” bowl out of…what else?
Nap Rating = 1 nap
- one small bowl
- yarn in color of your choice
- artificial moss
- artificial eggs
I used these reusable tabs by Scotch because they’ll remove easily without damaging the bowl–just in case I ever wanted or needed my nesting bowl. But you could also use double-sided tape or a hot glue gun and glue sticks if you’re sure you won’t want your bowl for anything else later on.
- Starting at the base of the bowl, place the reusable tabs at even intervals around the circumference of the base.
- Start wrapping the yarn around and around, using your finger to secure the yarn on the tabs. Keep wrapping until you need another row of tabs.
- When you’ve gotten to the top of the bowl, cut the string and secure to the last tab.
- Fill the bowl with moss and heap the eggs on top.
I hesitated to even type out these instructions because this was so simple, but just in case there was any question…
