nested eggs

I always look forward to Easter weekend each year. I love chocolate and eggs but importantly taking the time to consider the real meaning of Easter. This year my family will all be together again and I’m looking forward to that too.

The other day I was finishing up using the last of a roll of Glue Dots®. I go through this adhesive like crazy. I set the empty roll aside as I knew that I could definitely recycle it into something creative. Re-purposing packaging is a wonderful thing.

Yesterday I was busy creating when it hit me that these rolls would be a perfect way to display Easter eggs. Please forgive me that my egg isn’t died yet but I know you get the idea. Just picture my little project with a lovely pastel hand-dyed egg.

To create this project I covered my empty Glue Dots® roll with some patterned paper. I then adhered some lovely tulle trim around the inside of the roll. More of those wonderful Glue Dots® to the rescue.

Next came tying the roll with twine and fixing it in place with a Glue Dots® under the knot. And lastly, I adhered the flower in place as well. To finish it off, I put some sphagnum moss in the middle of the roll to make a little “nest” for the egg. Sweet!

Happy creating!

  2. Ahhhh, this is SO pretty! See, this is the kind of stuff I keep . . . .but I never come up with anything to DO with it. But there you went and actually DID something genius! Can I be you for a day!!!?? (Case in point: I just pulled THREE empty oatmeal containers from my pantry, which should serve SOME wonderful purpose.)
