Jen Migonis, owner of Migonis Home, is a wife and mother, whose website features delicious recipes, project ideas, tablescapes, and home inspiration. For Easter, she and her husband created a brilliant indoor take on a rustic window box. Filled with moss, Spring flowers, and fresh eggs. It is a perfect Easter centerpiece.
What You Need:
(1) Old Pallet
(3) Clear Vases or Juice Glasses
Eggs (Real or Faux)
Craft Store Bird
Drill and Screws
Jen’s husband, AJ, began this project by breaking apart an old weathered pallet found on his Dad’s farm. You will need three boards of equal length and two short pieces for the ends.
Attach the two side pieces to the bottom. Measure from the inside frame to ensure that the end pieces fit perfectly. Jen used a drill to screw the wood pieces together. Due to the age of the wood, it was too hard to cut from a hand saw, so they used a tablesaw.
She liked the look of the rusted nails so much that she decided to leave them for a more rustic look. Of course, they can be removed if you prefer.
Jen filled three juice glasses with water and Spring flowers for color and height. She added the filled glasses to the box.
Next, she used a torn old leaf bag to fill the spaces between the flowers. Brown craft paper or paper shopping bags can be used instead.
On top of the brown paper filler, she added a layer of fresh eggs from her chicken coop, colored eggs from a local craft store, and moss rocks from the dollar store. She filled in gaps with moss.
She added a small bird to complete the Spring look. You could also add a birds nest, butterflies, or any other Spring accent.
Jen completed this beautiful fresh Spring tablescape with jellybean filled glasses, white plates, and pale blue napkins.
