Hello friends! How are you on this beautiful spring morning? Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
I am bucking the system and not talking St. Patrick's Day. You can see my St. Patty's decor here.
I have already moved on to Easter decorating but am having some major decorator's block. My kitchen looks like an explosion of forsythia branches, faux eggs and a random bunny here and there. They are not playing together nicely. Coming together more like a clown show which is so not the look I'm going for.
Until I get this mess figured out, I though I could share one of my more successful spring looks from 2 years ago when my blog was just a baby. Most of you probably haven't seen it since I had about 16 followers at the time.
So here goes... may have to do this again this year if I can't bust out of this decorating slump...
On a recent trip to Home Goods (which is a big deal because the nearest one is like 2 hours away!) I found these great huge candle holders that were super duper cheap !. When I bought them I was worried that they might be too big but I am loving them!
I got these little green birds at TJ's for $2 each and didn't even have to spray paint them. :) I saw the same birds at Michaels for $5.99! That's why I heart TJMaxx. :)
I thought they'd look great on my new gianormous candle holders for spring but they were just missing something....
I decided they needed nests, but not the stick kind, pretty, flowery nests. I took some garland that I got for 50% off at Michaels and made them flowery nests.
To do this all I did was cut the 5 foot garland in half and then curled it up to the appropriate nest size. I held it with some twist ties. Easy stuff.
My twist tie is gold, I'm fancy, huh?!
It's just what the little birds needed. I really like how they turned out... :)
Don't the birds look so much happier now in their flower nests. I think they like them! :)
