Primitive Robin Eggs Jar

I don't decorate for many holidays anymore, not since my daughter got married. I tend to only do Christmas and Autumn decorating. But lately I've been wanting to add more Primitive Spring-themed Primitive Home Decor. So as I'm crafting I'm constantly thinking of what can I make to put in the living room or kitchen and what-not. I've been inspired by lots of bloggers who post crafts and home decor with robin eggs, so this led me to create my Primitive Robin Eggs Jar.

Primitive Robin Eggs Jar

You could use any old vintage jar you might have around to create something like this. I didn't have any truly vintage jars that had a big enough opening, so I chose a jar I had in my studio. It's got a very old-fashioned and vintage look to it, so I figured it would work just fine. Then I took some plain wooden eggs, about 1-3/4" long, and painted them a nice robin's egg blue. Next I used a toothbrush to spatter some brown speckles onto the eggs. After they were all dry I added some Spanish Moss to the bottom of my jar and then put the eggs on top. It's sort of like a prim nest in a jar. I love it. And of course it could be for Primitive Easter decor too.
