Easy DIY Easter craft repurposing vintage crochet thread balls into "nest baskets". Perfect for adding to a springtime vignette or Easter table setting!
This simple project takes just minutes once you gather your supplies and your glue gun!
Supplies include: vintage crochet thread balls, wood excelsior or moss, faux eggs, gift bag handles or corded paper twist.
Make two small holes in the thread ball where you will insert the bag handle or corded paper twist.
Glue handle in place.
Glue excelsior or moss and then eggs on top. Can finish by wrapping more excelsior or moss pieces lightly with glue around the edge for a more "full look" to the "nest".
Voila! Add to your Easter table or anywhere you want a charming vintage spring touch!
