Hurricane Globe Bird Nest

For the past two years, this has been my spring centerpiece in my dining room (I moved it outside for the photo.) 🙂

All I used was my hurricane globe, “sugared” eggs I picked up at Joann Fabrics last year, and a bunch of raffia I had kicking around in my craft drawer. First, swirl the raffia into the bottom of the globe to form the nest. Next, position your eggs, making sure to alternate colors of the eggs so the overall look is balanced. That’s it! Depending on the size of your globe, you can place just a few eggs in your nest, or a whole bunch! You could also use wood eggs, blown, dyed eggs (just be careful while positioning your delicate creations,) or you could use bright plastic eggs for a more playful look.

    1. Thank you! I have always put frosted fruit in the globe at Christmas, and so when I saw those eggs in the store last year, a lightbulb went off!

  1. Ok this is getting scary, I just saw this post and we have a similar decoration in our dining room!
