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.

Those eggs are beautiful , they are set off well in your baskets
Thanks so much Lucy! (You have a lovely name:)
Jennifer, These are just great. My 6 year old granddaughter is staying w/us for a few days and this will be one of our projects for tomorrow. Your timing is PERFECT ! Thanks so much and Happy Easter.
Patsy, my mom made these with her 6 year old granddaughter and she did great with it! I hope your Easter is filled with fun and family! Thanks for visiting here!
It sounds like a great idea both the eggs and the baskets. I bet your knitted ones would have worked even without the wire. Love your chickens hovering around them too. Just whose eggs are they anyway?
Now THAT is the question…the eggs are too big to be birds eggs. Hmmm…a mystery that might need to be solved one day very soon! 😉
They look amazing… I especially love the photo nest with the birdies all peering in 🙂
Thank you Janette! We’ll have to wait and see what pops out of these eggs…;)
Love these!!!!! I just happen to have a pack of eggs outside. I might just try this collage idea! So colorful!
I’m sure you’ll have loads of fun with collaging eggs! So good to “see” you here! I hope life is going well for you and allowing time to create here and there!
