Dear Creatives, I wanted to share a little easy tutorial for you before the Easter weekend. This is easy to do & really quick. I had been hunting around for glass dome cover to purchase locally, since we are in a small town area I guess nobody carries them! What?!! Oh, well moving on I search baking isles, for glass cake covers & none to be found only plastic. I get it but, I am looking for Easter decor not going on a picnic.
Searching around I find this vase on clearance. Ok, maybe if I turn it upside down it will be the perfect size to cover my figurine & make my table top pretty. The price was right $2.49 so try I must & here is what I came up with.
You would need:
- 1 plate or glass charger for the bottom (mine I had from clearance from Pier 1 years old)
- 2 dried or fabric floral picks from Michaels or …
- 1-2 pick of wire wrapped Easter faux eggs
- 1 or more figurines
- 1 small bird nest
- wood spool
- acrylic paint *see this post for color(s) I used & another diy for Easter
- paint brush or foam brush & water
- 1 glass dome or vase cover
- hot glue gun if you want to glue it * optional
- small wire cutters or scissors (do not use sewing scissors!)
Now just see how easy & quick!
First paint wood spool & set aside to dry. Next pull apart carefully a strand or two to work with from your Easter egg wired floral pick. Try not to tear the wrapped paper that covers the wire. Use small wire cutters this makes it easy to do, by snipping toward the bottom of the pick.
Next arrange wired eggs around your bird nest pulling them toward outer edges and center onto your charger or plate.
Next add your figurine to center of nest & some floral picks around outside of the nest cover with dome or vase I added branches outside on the charger too. I had them from deconstructing the bird nest that was set on branches I had left over from wedding decor.
My vase had a flat glass bottom now becoming the top of the dome. I covered it by first painting a spool, as mentioned above then wrapping wired floral picks along with left over eggs around & setting on top of flat base. *this is when you would hot glue to base if not going to dismantle for storing.
You can click on image to enlarge, but you get the picture of what it is looking like now. You can see I have added floral picks to inside of spool making a topiary.
I used a floral pick for the topiary that had shimmering butterflies on a wire ( it looks washed out in image, but it is so pretty in person)
Now it’s finished & ready to move to my dining room! I just have to grocery shop, clean & be ready to cook for Easter!
Hope you enjoyed this how to!
