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!!

  3. 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. :)

  11. 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!

  19. 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!

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