Girl in The Nest

I´ve been in Easter mode this past week
so I have spend some time creating a little Easter decoration
actually it´s not only for Easter
it would look pretty all your round

I bought a papier mache eggs - you know
one of those with all the colors on meant to put little thing inside for the children.

painted it all cream and decorated the inside with old paper
some teadyed cheesecloth as a nest in the button
and an image of a sweet vintage spring girl

added a little twig too

and some old lace round the edge

my first thought was to add a twine so it could be hanged
from a branch - but changed my mind and wanted it to stand instead.

so I created a stand out of cardstock and old paper,
added a tiny nest on top
and clued the egg to the nest

and here it is
a sweet little spring decoration.
Wishing you all a wonderful day
