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 and none were 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 like a dome to make my tabletop pretty. The price was right.

- 1 plate or glass charger for the bottom (mine I had from clearance from Pier 1)
- 2 dried or fabric floral picks from Michaels or …
- 1-2 pick of wire wrapped Easter faux eggs
- 1 or more Easter figurines
- 1 small bird nest
- wood spool
- acrylic paint *see this post for color(s) I used and another DIY for Easter
- paintbrush or foam brush and water
- 1 glass dome or glass bell 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 and quick!
How to Make Budget-Friendly Easter Decorations
- First, paint wood spool & set aside to dry.
- Next, pull apart the Easter Egg floral pick carefully a strand or two to work.
- 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 the center of the nest
- Then add 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 birds’ nest that was set on branches I had leftover 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 leftover eggs around and setting on top of a flat base.
- This is when you would hot glue to base if not going to dismantle it for storing.
You can click on the image to enlarge, but you get the picture of what it is looking like now. You can see I have added floral picks to the 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 the image, but it is so pretty in person).
Now it’s finished and ready to move to my dining room!
I hope you enjoyed this how-to!
