How to Make a Repurposed Cloche for Spring

Now more than ever before it is important to use what you have. 

Nest with eggs and moss

The broken lantern I was hanging on to hoping to fix one day, the tiny domed cupcake container I saved for someday... 

Today I'm going to put them to use! 

I began with the broken lantern. 

I saved the base and the glass but the handle, I'll use another day.

I filled a store bought nest with moss in different colors then hot glued a few speckled eggs into the moss. 

I added tiny pieces of faux flower stems and fit it into the glass dome.

I added a sheer organza bow to the top and was finished with this cutie in no time.

Next I had a tiny plastic cupcake container that I filled with a tiny nest of wrapped moss.

I added one egg then sealed the top with hot glue. 

I attached it to the top of a vintage tin and added an antiqued clothespin to the top.

Reusing old pieces made FREE Spring decorations for my home and an easy project I could make with the family.
