Easter "nest" eggs

Here's another Easter make of mine.  I made egg shaped twine "nests" with water balloons wrapped in gluey twine, hung to dry then filled with mini eggs and a little fuzzy chick!

Old book & butterflies Easter egg decorations

Here are the Easter decorations I made for my parents' "seasonal" tree.  They have an attractive array of twig branches which they started using at Christmas, but have decided to keep it up all year and change the decorations with the seasons.  So I've made eggs (polystyrene from Poundland), decoupaged with old book pages, given an enamel spray coating and crackle glazed butterflies attached.  I made half a dozen of these, boxed in an egg carton with the writing hidden with scrapbook paper.

Sorry the photos are so bad, I never get the lighting right and using my phone to snap probably doesn't help!
