Mosaic egg

I broke a couple of my honeycomb carnival glass iced tea glasses, and couldn't bear to throw away the pretty glass, so I found a big glass egg at a flea market and used the pretty pieces (plus some flat marbles) to cover it and make a marvelous "egg" for the garden. Who knows what could hatch from this? A dragon? Fabulous bird?

I LOVE your egg! The carnival glass looks beautiful used for mosaic! It did not die in vain. I like the medieval-ish feel of your design and the little nest.
Do tell, did you glue the pcs first or set them into the
concrete or what?.

Elegant! Beautiful placement of the carnival glass & 1/2 marbles. I think this is a "Forever Egg"! Jan

I found a big glass egg vase at a flea market, to begin with, (it was rather ugly purple and green) and glued a plastic piece to cover the hole, then I glued the glass shards and marbles to it, one side at a time with E6000. When it was dry and cured I turned it over and did the bottom side. Then I used mosaic grout, working it in between the pieces with a damp sponge (being very careful and using rubber gloves as the glass is kinda sharp!) also doing one side at a time. It was a fun project! Thank you for your compliments!
