Whether you love feathers or fairy gardens, there’s loads of ways you can decorate glass eggs to add a touch of spring elegance to your home.

Fairy garden glass egg

What you will need

•    Brown Fimo

•    Cream Fimo

•    Moss

•    Paper blossoms

•    Glass egg

•    Polystyrene toadstools

•    Paper butterflies

•    Glue gun

•    Bostik All Purpose glue

Directions

1. Make some tiny Fimo cottages using cream and brown Fimo.

2. Stick the cottage to the base of the glass bauble using a glue gun. Use forceps to hold the cottage and insert it.

3. Now stick the moss around the cottage and to the sides of the glass.

4. Place the other elements of the fairy garden into the bauble using forceps. Glue them onto the moss.

Feather glass egg

What you will need

•    Glass egg

•    White feathers

•    Satin ribbon

•    Scissors

Directions

1. Sort through your pack of feathers and find a feather with a good shape and a bit of fluffiness.

2. Place the feather inside your glass egg, so that it rests against one side.

3. Finish off by cutting away the hanging twine, and replacing with luxurious satin ribbon. Tie a bow and cut the ends off neatly.

Nest glass egg

You Will Need

•    Moss

•    Paper blossoms

•    Glass egg

•    Mini nest embellishments

•    Polystyrene decorative eggs

•    Glue gun

Directions

1. Take apart a piece of moss, roughly the size of a ping pong ball, and tease it apart a little with your hands.

2. Place the moss inside the glass egg and push it around so that it goes up the sides a bit, leaving more of an indentation in the middle.

3. Take another small piece of moss, and glue to the inside of your nest embellishment.

4. Choose two decorative polystyrene eggs from the pack and arrange so you’re happy with the way they sit on top of your nest. Glue in place.

5. Glue your decorated nest to the inside of your glass egg, on top of the moss.

6. Finish off by placing a few paper blossoms in and around the nest and moss.
