Confession time…I hate Easter grass. It gets everywhere and it seems to multiply in our house. I find this especially strange considering we never buy any! So, of course I decided to find a crafty solution for it so it remains a bit more contained.
This project was a little messy, but pretty doggone simple. And the results were pretty cute! I made a small Easter grass nest, but you can create any size.
- School glue (or Modpodge)
- Assortment of Easter grass
- A balloon
- A bowl
- A paintbrush (optional)
Inflate your balloon. Keep in mind the desired finished size. I only inflated mine a bit because I wanted a smaller nest.
Pour glue into your bowl. Thin with water. Don’t use more than a 1:1 ratio of glue to water. Too much water will make a much bigger mess and takes longer to set up.
There are two options here. Option 1: Paint glue solution on the balloon and adhere grass to the balloon. Option 2: Dip small bunches of grass into the solution and apply them to the balloon.After applying a few layers, invert your balloon (nest side up) in a bowl and allow to dry overnight. You might want to put down some newspaper, to make clean up a snap.
When your nest is dry, pop your balloon and carefully peel the easter grass nest away from the nest.
Fill your nest and enjoy the cuteness!
This is a very kid-friendly craft. The glue mixture gets a little messy, but it’s all washable. Grab some grass and get crafting– and pin this post to save it for later!
