DIY Spring Bird’s Nest

DIY Bird's Nest 2

I love all the butterflies, eggs, blooms and bird’s nests that come out at the start of Spring.

I wanted a couple bird’s nests for Spring decor this year, so I looked around for what I had.

I had bought these flower baskets on summer clearance because I had plans for the metal caging…..still do 🙂

I figured the coconut mulch would make the perfect bird’s nest. You could use any flower pot or window basket coconut mulch for this project.

I usually don’t replace mine every year, but some of you do, and the old stuff would work great too, or you can buy it at some craft stores in a roll.

I cut mine down. If you’re using coconut mulch that isn’t round, cut it as circular as possible, and then stretch it and spread it out .

Then pull the pieces apart until it’s fluffy, like a nest. Shape the nest by tucking some parts in and pulling some parts out until you have it looking like you want.

To add some color, I added some green moss pieces from the Dollar Store and some eggs I painted with blue sparkle paint from the Dollar Store.

It only cost around $5 and took under 10 minutes. Pretty easy!

I hope you’re all having a great week!



  1. It looks like spring!

    • Thanks Jenny Lynn! I hope it’s starting to look like spring around here. I feel like I still need some new fun pillows for the couch or something. Maybe that will be this week’s project 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  2. That is really pretty. I saw someone else use a cocoa mat to make a nest. Clever. Hugs, Marty

  3. Very cute! Love the eggs too! I’m going to try to remember this one:-)

  4. So pretty Katie! I’m going to make a couple of these for my mantle! You’ve inspired me! 😉

  5. So sweet Katie!! Love this.

    You sure have gotten this old head going, want to find a coconut basket with the wire cradle with it. Don’t know as I’ve ever seen one like that but then I’m not one to hang out at garden shops, guess I will now if I can find that. Love your idea for a nest, looks more authentic than alot I’ve seen ready made. Just have to fiddle with it a bit and I’ve got myself a different kind of nest. Lovin that. Great job Katie.
    Happy Days gal.

    • Thanks Jane Ellen! I’ve seen people make them out of so many things. I wonder if the Dollar Store has coconut mulch yet? Thanks for stopping by!
