Happy Tuesday Everyone!
As you have seen lately, I have been updating things around the house for spring. I’m seeing more & more signs of it all around me so I have been itching to change things around the house. You saw my coffee filter wreath I shared & I needed to add some more to the mantle & the rest of the house to make it feel less like winter in here.
I have been meaning to do a salt-dough craft with the kids since before Christmas. So I finally decided to give this little idea a try. I wanted to have a cute little “nest of robin eggs” in the house- maybe on the mantle or on the end table. I didn’t want to purchase them so I decided that we would give it a go with the salt dough & see how they turned out. I thought I would paint them when they dried but once I added the food color to the dough, they dried naturally speckled so no need for paint.
If I had really been prepared I would have had the kids use a mold of some sort to make them smooth- but you know, I sort of like them imperfect.
I love that they were carefully shaped ever so lovingly by my children. I will cherish them forever.
These were super easy to make.
