I don’t know about you, but I really like to add elements of nature in my home decor. Does that make sense? Well, let me try and explain what I mean with thrifty ideas on How To Use Bird Nests In Home Decor.
It’s that time of month when I get to share a thrifty idea along with my talented and thrifty blogging friends.
This month I am excited to share several ways on how I have used REAL bird nests around my home for seasonal decorating and all year long.
Simple, easy and to the point. Nests look pretty all year long. In my opinion, anyway.
Vintage books, a nest and a plant. Easy peasy, right? You can use the eggs any time of year, but let me show you other things to replace eggs, later in my post.
How To Use Bird Nests In Home Decor can be as easy or as complicated as you make it. For a unique vignette, use some of your own favorite home accessories as a “base”. Then simply as your bird nest.
I like to place my real bird nests on my vintage scale or even a pedestal. Cute and unexpected, right?
What about on a pedestal and under a bell dome? I just love this. I wasn’t even sure it would fit. And I am so glad I gave it a try. So worth it.
What about a small pumpkin resting in a nest for Fall decorating? Once again under a bell dome. Love!
During the Christmas season, I painted some pecans silver and gold.
The shape reminds me of bird eggs. But with a metallic twist.
I have heard that if you find a bird nest in a Christmas tree, it is good luck. What if you find one in a wreath, is it the same tale?
I hope so, because I place three nests in my Christmas wreath. Aren’t the hummingbird nests sweet?
The humming bird nests have special meaning to our family. When my mother-in-law had cancer there was a humming bird that built a nest on her deck. My mother-in-law was very sick from radiation and chemo for weeks. The humming bird (which she named Flo) kept her spirits up and was one of the only things she looked forward to on a daily basis. Flo was very protective of her eggs and once they hatched she would get very upset if anyone tried to look at them. EXCEPT when my mother-in-law did.
Flo came back to build a nest the following year-which is highly unusual for humming birds. My mother-in-law had the same joy and fulfillment as she did the first time watching Flo. She was just as sick as she was the year before.
The third year my sweet mother-in-law passed away and Flo never returned. So you can see why I love bird nests so much. They represent life and gifts to me.
I hope you have enjoyed the simple, meaningful and easy ways on How To Use Bird Nests In Home Decor.
