A Nest for My Rustic Eggs – Μια Φωλιά για τα Χωριάτικα  Αυγά

Sharing is caring!

Spring is in the air and Easter is … well, for some of us Easter is almost here.  As for me, Easter will have to wait a bit longer,  specifically the first of May. You can read more about my Easter here.   But that doesn’t mean we can’t decorate our homes in preparation for the holiday.  Today I’m going to show you an easy nest for my rustic eggs  that I’ve made using things from the house and farm. 

Η άνοιξη έφτασε και το Πάσχα είναι … καλά, για κάποιους από εμάς το Πάσχα είναι σχεδόν εδώ. Όσο για μένα, το Πάσχα θα πρέπει να περιμένει λίγο ακόμα. Μπορείτε να διαβάσετε περισσότερα για το Πάσχα μου εδώ. Αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι δεν μπορούμε να στολίσουμε τα σπίτια μας για τις γιορτές. Σήμερα θα σας δείξω μια εύκολη φωλιά για τα  ρουστίκ αυγά μου που έχω κάνει χρησιμοποιώντας πράγματα από το σπίτι και το αγρόκτημα.

Anest for my rustic eggs -
I’m teaming  up with 8 very talented ladies in the Hoppy Easter blog hop and you can also add your Easter creations below.

The nest started out as a homely wreath. It looked like this …

Η φωλιά ξεκίνησε ως ένα απλό στεφάνι. Έμοιαζε έτσι …

… till about a year ago whenI transformed it to this with some white paint and a cool hedgehog ribbon. 

… μέχρι περίπου ένα χρόνο πριν, όταν το μετέτρεψα σε αυτό με λευκό χρώμα και μια  κορδέλα  σκαντζόχοιρου.

I used a small glass dessert plate.

The wreath was re-painted white after being freed from the hedgehogs.  It was placed on top of the plate. 

Το στεφάνι ξαναβάφτηκε λευκό, μετά την απελευθέρωσή του από τους σκαντζόχοιρους. Τοποθετήθηκε πάνω στο πιατάκι.

I placed some velvet fabric, a left over from a dress (you knew that was coming), inside the wreath.  We’ll pretend that this is the grass inside the nest!

Έβαλα βελούδινο ύφασμα από φόρεμα, μέσα στο στεφάνι.  Αφού  ξέρετε  ότι  δεν  πετάω τίποτα!Θα προσποιηθούμε ότι αυτό είναι το χόρτο μεσα στη φωλιά!

Now for the eggs.  I am pretty much a traditonalist when it comes to eggs, but this year I felt like red would not be the right color for this particular nest.  I bought home these beauties from the farm in all their brown glory and decided I really liked their natural color. So instead of dyeing them, I just added white chalk paint in various shapes and designs – nothing fancy.  And I finished them off with a marker. 

Και τώρα για τα  αυγά!   Ειμαι  αρκετά  παραδοσιακή  με  το  βάψιμο  των  αυγών,  αλλά φέτος αισθανόμουν ότι το κόκκινο δεν θα ταίριαζε για αυτή τη φωλιά.  Έφερα  από το κτήμα αυτά τα  όμορφα καφέ αυγά και μου άρεσε το φυσικό τους χρώμα. Έτσι, αντί να τα βάψω, απλώς πρόσθεσα άσπρη κιμωλία χρώμα σε διάφορα σχήματα και σχέδια – τίποτα ιδιαίτερο. Και τα τελείωσα με μαρκαδόρους.

I really love the contrast of the white against the natural brown of the eggs.

Μ’αρέσει η αντίθεση του λευκού με το φυσικό καφέ των αυγών.

You can see that the paint on the  wreath also adds lots of rustic goodness.

To be honest I don’t think these lovelies will last till Easter so I may be back next month with some more eggs. Let’s hope my chicken is working hard. 

Για να είμαι ειλικρινής δεν νομίζω ότι αυτές οι ομορφιές θα αντέξουν μέχρι το Πάσχα γι’αυτό ίσως να επιστρέψω πάλι τον επόμενο μήνα με περισσότερα αυγά. Ας ελπίσουμε ότι η κότα  μου θα εργάζεται σκληρά.

And with that my nest for my rustic eggs is complete.   Nothing fancy and all things you can find at home.  Happy Easter everyone!!

Κι έτσι η φωλιά μου ειναι έτοιμη.  Τίποτα φανταχτερό και όλα πράγματα που βρίσκονται στο σπίτι. Καλό Πάσχα σε όλους!!

The wreath nest looks lovely filled with your rustic eggs. Thanks for sharing your idea on MM.

Thank you for the party invite. I love the way you did the eggs. They are so sophisticated looking. The whole presentation is spot on.


Saturday 12th of March 2016

Thanks so much Debra. Now at some point I'll have to make some more eggs because I don't think these will survive till May.


Thursday 10th of March 2016

I really like how the eggs turned out. They look awesome! I really have to get some chalk paint. But...I am wondering if you hard boiled them first? I am just curious. You have a chicken?!!


Saturday 12th of March 2016

Thanks Krista. I have one chicken at the farm and she lays her eggs wherever she pleases. A diva! I did hard boil them but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to eat them. I celebrate Easter May 1st so I'll be making another batch till then. These are for display purposes

What a great idea to paint your natural eggs! Love the contrast of white and brown for a nice new easterly look!!!


Saturday 12th of March 2016

That's exatly what prompted me to paint them Gail, the contrast of the white against the brown. A new look for me because I usually go with red.

My eggs last year were a complete blue disaster so I don't have a link to be proud of! This year I guess with all this inspiration I'll do a better job!


Saturday 12th of March 2016

As long as we don't eat them we can experiment to our hearts content. This is the first year I'm stepping away from the traditional red. I s hould have a label that says "for blogging purposes only" lol
