Easter Nests ..

I dashed out this morning to
buy some mini chocolate eggs - to finish the
look of these Easter nests i created.






Made from vintage doilies / trims and raffia handles .
The two shades of blue are 3 " wide and
the tiny cream one is an inch wide . They
were shaped and " set " with modge podge .



















And my duck keyring ;o)
sat in a wool nest with wooden eggs .
Strips of wool were dipped in PVA glue and
shaped around a ceramic bowl . A messy job - and you can
still see the glue - i may try modge podge next time !





Then i weaved some pieces of wool
in between the holes .




I will be sorting a price out for the
crochet nests and putting them in
my shop as soon as possible .
Or give me a holler on here beforehand -
if you`re interested !
