Nest Egg

I saw this idea a couple years ago at a cute local shop called Topiaries.ย 
I suppose it’s what you would call a “statement piece”.
Just a bit over the top but SUCH fun!

You’ll need:
a grapevine wreath
a package of raffia
and then a bunch of trims, tulle, ribbon
or anything else that can be tied around the wreath
let your imagination go wild!

here’s a peek

I tied long strands of raffia around the wreath
I put it over a floor lamp so I could work on it easier
What is it?
Can’t tell you yet…..

Then I tied on long strips of tulle and netting
And began adding strips of trims

And ribbons

What is it?

And rickrack

I found a tiny wired flower garland in my stash too

Have you guessed?

When I was done, I found an urn and an egg

here’s my Nest Egg

Need a better picture?
How’s this?

Or this

and last but not least……

I love it…do you?
