Nests and bunnies galore!

We've gone Easter bunny mad here!
They're everywhere and they make us smile!
And nests! Nests for eggs. We always make our own as gifts for cousins and friends.
This year they're not completely edible but very pretty!
Want to know how? Find some suitable yarn (and mummy will of course add some pink when you're not looking beautiful boy!) and chop it all up into useful lengths.
Pour some PVA glue into a plate and get very sticky and messy putting the yarn into the glue and then onto a balloon!
Cover about a third of the balloon...
Then peg it up to dry!
The following day (they take a long time to dry!) pop the balloons and hey presto!
Lovely nests to fill with yummy eggs!
Oh and more bunnies :-)
Oh we're so excited! t.x

What a lovely bunny post!
I saw those nests over at the crafty crow, but I though the balloon would stick to the glue. Obviously I was wrong. We must make!

Hi Pinkie,

Had to write to let you know about the nest tragedy. We made them, hung them up and they dried....securing themselves to the floor LOL. They splatted to the floor!

No easter nest for us. I will post pictures of the tragedy later!

Lynda! Oh good grief! I so that there wasn't carpet on the floor! Will watch out for the pictures! A cautionary tale! I wonder what happened? Our were hung to dry in the kitschen and the Aga keeps it quite warm in there all night so maybe they dried quicker? t.x
