NEST … with a few simple DIY ideas for your home

Here are a few ideas for adding a touch of new decor into your home that are inexpensive and perfect for creating together as a family activity.


String bowl by Craft Tuts. What a simple idea for adding texture to your tabletop. Maybe even experiment with earth tone or bright colors of hemp string.


Painted baskets by Emma of The Marion House Book. The patterns on these baskets look so great and what an incredible way to give new life to a standard basket!


Milk Carton Planters by Camilla of Family Chic. These look like such an easy sustainable planter project to freshen up your nest and would also make a great gift.

enjoy your monday!
