Here’s how it happened:
I’m in Blowing Rock walking the streets with my mom, pressing our noses to the windows. We see these awesome, cool eggs that have been collaged with torn papers.
“Let’s make them…”
That very day we bought plastic easter eggs and glued small pieces of papers onto them in her studio in Boone.
Got home to Kernersville and felt that the eggs needed a nest.
Thought I’d try these glue-yarn bowls/nests I’d seen online somewhere. When I put them in the garage to dry (yarn is dipped in glue and draped over a balloon) I thought they were a fail. They just didn’t seem like they would be stiff enough to hold anything.
So Lucy (my cat) helped me knit these nests with a strand of small wire held along with the yarn. (I thought the wire would help the nest keep it’s shape:).
And Macy and her friends like them too!
Then a few days later…
…I happened to be in the garage and I saw those yarn thingys all dried and hardened.
Oh! They did work!
And now I need to make more collaged eggs!
*Seems like I visit the whole eggs-in-a-nest thing every Spring: like here.
