Easter feather bowl
Here is an interesting way to display decorated eggs or Easter chocolate: in a feathery bowl, wrapped in wool. The eggs will look as though they’ve never left the nest! You can use it after Easter, too, to display decorative balls, jewellery or as a pretty ornament on a shelf.
What you need:
- a small cane basket or plastic bowl
- craft glue
- a paintbrush
- also handy: paper plate to squeeze glue onto
The materials to create the craft; using a paintbrush to apply glue; wrap the basket with wool;
applying glue on the inside of the basket; lining the basket with feathers; the finished craft.
Using the paintbrush, paint some glue around the base of the bowl. Start off with a couple of centimetres – once you get the hang of wrapping you can increase the amount you put on at once, but you don’t want the glue to dry first before putting the wool on!
With one end of the wool, press it into the glue at the very base and slowly wrap around the bowl until you reach the top.
Apply glue to the inside of the bowl.
Press feathers on the inside of the bowl. You may need to glue over some feathers to overlap them. Have some sticking out slightly and at different angles for a “birds nest” feel.
- You can get the cane basket, the feathers and most of the supplies at Spotlight or other craft stores.
