Easy Easter Craft
Hey friends! Welcome to the Creative craft hop. Our theme is Spring DIY. This month I’ve got one easy Easter craft to share with you!
I’ve been busy decorating my powder room for Easter so I thought this would be the perfect project for our DIY project.
Before getting started I’d like to thank Sarah from Birdz of A Feather for hosting this super fun hop. And if you are coming from Jenna’s at The Paint Apron, WELCOME! I am so glad that you are here.
Mosses – spanish and reindeer
Start with a french fry holder.
That’s right a french fry holder!
I love them because they look like springs, they actually hold food.
And today it’s going to hold a really cute floral arrangement.
Line the french fry holder with a birds nest.
These aren’t the typical birds nest, they are really more of a birds nest liner.
However, they work really well for this!
For this craft I am not gluing everything together as I want to use this french fry holder later.
Although to keep this long term glue is recommended.
Once you have the birds nest in, it’s time to add in the mosses.
I started with Spanish moss.
Then added in green reindeer moss.
Now for the fun part – adding the embellishments!
I started with adding in small flowers.
Followed by adding in a few sprigs of greenery.
I found the cutest Easter pick that has small colorful berries .
They were easy to cut apart and insert small stems of them into the birds nest.
Add in a few eggs and a bow at the bottom and you have finished an easy Easter craft!
I love it so much I’m considering making it permanent.
Now please join me in visiting Nikki at Life As A LEO Wife and all of the other talented bloggers to see what they are making!

Your bird nest arrangement is just the cutest ever! I had no clue that french fry holders existed. It’s perfect for holding a nest. Great idea!
The french fry holders remind me of springs…. We also use them for s’mores and all sorts of things!
What a pretty project, Tammy, and it’s perfect for spring! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
Thank you Cecilia!
Tammy. you certainly created a unique and lovely spring design using a french fry holder! Who would a thought! You did! And it’s quite pretty, fun and festive!
We use those French Fry holders for a lot of things. Mainly for s’mores. Just add “french fry” paper in a cone to the holder and it’s perfect for s’more pieces for the littles and corals the mess! ha! They are super fun!
Oh Tammy, your Spring nest is adorable! How clever to use a french fry holder as a stand~ and pairing it with a moss bunny is perfect! Love it!
You never let us down on your crafts. I love how this turned out. Thanks for sharing the tutorial Tammy.
Thank so much Terrie! High praise coming from you!
Wow Tammy, a french fry holder? So creative! This is a gorgeous Easter display.
I know! The French Fry holder is crazy but really works for a lot of things!
Thanks Sara! I love the holders. They are so versatile!
This is so stinking cute I love it. I need to thank you for the french fry holder idea. I have been searching for an old bed spring and this is a fabulous alternative. Your little display is perfect.
Thanks Leanna! I was looking for a spring too and saw my FF holders and knew it would be perfect for my project. They are so versatile!
I love your pretty nest, Tammy. After this last storm, I really need Spring!
I’m with you on needing Spring! So ready!
I had to scroll back and read that twice that you used a french fry holder! I really thought it was a old bed spring. I love that idea. You have definitely given me inspiration for future projects.
LOL! The french fry holder is really reaching outside of the box for sure!
Tammy, I had no idea where you were going with the French fry holder, but this arrangement turned out so cute. Lots of places to use it for Easter.
The french fry holder is really odd for sure…. but it does work. Necessity is the mother of invention!
What a great idea. I have a wire basket I think I will try.
I’ll bet making a nest in a wire basket would look great!
