Hope you all had a fantastic new year! We had a nice relaxing evening (which kind of happens after you have kids) with friends. We ate lots of food – no surprise there – and played some games! In all honesty, this is the way I prefer it. Most NYE get togethers involve a nice night at home with the ones you love. And surrounded by food and fun of course! 

To start off the new year, I created a fun new piece for the home: a bird and nest on a stand. This can act as a focal point in a room or just a little something extra to add to the shelf.

This is an easy DIY, all you will need is:

Bird (I snagged mine at Michael’s in the Christmas sale section – I love glitter all year round)

Nest (aka gold pom pom, also from Michael’s)

Wooden Skewer

Wood Base (I found some wood coasters at Target for sale and just repurposed them for this DIY)


Hot Glue

Take your bird and hot glue it to the top of your pom pom (nest). Stab the sharp end of the wooden skewer through the pom pom. Drill a small hole in the center of your wooden base, but be sure not to drill all the way through. Place hot glue in the hole and place the blunt end of the skewer in the hole. Hold for a few seconds until the glue dries. 

I love how easy this DIY was. It’s a playful piece that adds a pop of color and texture to my home! The bird, nest and wood are another fun way of bringing nature indoors! Love!

What did you get up to last night? Would you feel like tackling this fun little DIY?

XOXO, Lidy
