Bird’s nest wreath

Bird's nest wreath

 

2 carved stone eggs from a roadside souvenir stall in a now forgotten country have been busily collecting dust on my bookcase, looking homeless and forlorn. 

So I decided to build them a home they could call their own.  I took the dried cuttings from an over-enthusiastic pandorea jasminoides growing on the garden fence, and wound it into a rough wreath for a circular perch. 

I made a small nest out of coiled wire and string to hold the couple securely on their perch, then used some emu feathers to add a bit of avian flourish – every egg wants to wear a fascinator.
