How to Refluff a Nest

For many years I've had this pretty painted box in one of our bathrooms.
I keep dried flowers from our yard, potpourri, and flowers that my husband♥ 
has given me for various occasions.


It seems very old fashioned but to me it's pretty and sentimental so I hang on to all of it.


                I also have this old nest that I couldn't bear to part with but it had lost all its color over time.
                                                                   See - it's a little sad.




So I spent 30 minutes with my box of dried flowers and my glue gun and transformed the old nest.
Just eyeballed and glued here and there.
I think it turned out great!


I laughed to myself calling this post a "how to" because we all know I'm not your go to girl for
that kind of thing. :)

Also, my husband says they look like guinea eggs and the guinea can't sit on the nest with all those flowers.

Ha!!

I love that beautiful box. Something like that never goes out of style! And tell hubby you don't want the eggs to hatch! heehee! I've been working on some shelves in my bedroom today...a post about it tomorrow! lol We love to share our fun, don't we? Sweet hugs, Diane

Well, I think your nest looks great! I love dried flowers. I was just noticing the other day that I still have a little grapevine wreath in my bathroom that has dried flowers on it. I bought it at a craft show almost 20 years ago! That's got to be some kind of record for me as far as how long I've used a wall decoration. :)

What a pretty box and what sweet things to poke in it too. You're a sentimental little thing. I love it and I love how you've redone your little nest too. Pretty fluffing!
Be a sweetie,

That is such a sweet little refresh! My daughters would loooove to have something like this in their rooms--I'm going to have to steal the idea!

I know the feeling of having things lose their charm, and I love the refreshed nest-whether a real bird could sit on it or not. Fun changes!

At least you can use a glue gun. I always get burned.

Oh How I need to re fluff my entire nest

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Stacey! You've reminded me that I have a pretty good sized nest stashed away that could use some refluffing. Love your box filled with flowers and potpourri. I'll bet it smells good, too!

Great re-purpose and it didn't cost you a cent! (maybe some hot glue??) And I love that it is sentimental.
