Easter Egg Nest
Make a charming presentation this year when you wear this adorable Easter egg nest pin. We all know that Easter eggs aren’t brought by the Easter bunny, but yet each Easter we look forward to finding the decorated treats in fluffy bird-like nests.
To add some depth to this piece, try adding a few stringers or frit. The nest will be flat and not as interesting as it will be with a few added decorations.
The tiny little eggs can be decorated also. Use some Glassline paints, frit or other pieces to enhance the pieces.
