DIY Beautiful Vintage Bed Spring Centerpieces

Hanging out in the workshop and just creating from what I have at hand is one of my favorite things to do.

Putting together a little bit of this and a little bit of that sparks my creativity and usually results in something fun. 

Today I'm starting with a pile of vintage bed springs in all different shapes and sizes.

On top of each spring, I made a nest. 

I used raffia on a few...

I wrapped the raffia around my hand a few times to form a nest then using a hot glue gun I attached it to the top of the bed spring.

On top of the raffia, I added a pre-made nest on one and the other some faux flower sprigs and colored Easter eggs.

On the top of another spring, I used a huge faux flower from my collections then added one of the mini farmhouse wreaths I made a while back. 

To that, I added moss, sprigs of faux flowers, and more Easter eggs. 

Here is an easy way to create speckled eggs that can be done on faux eggs for this project as well.

(I think this one might be my favorite)

Each spring was tied with a drop cloth bow. I cut strips of painter's drop cloth, frayed the edges then tied a bow.

I had one vintage wire egg cup I couldn't help but embellish while I was at it.

Spanish moss, an egg, a carrot, and a bow were all it needed to become adorable.

Fun times creating in the basement workshop 
keeps me grounded.
