Birdcage Easter Egg - Quilling

This year's last Easter egg is a birdcage. It is delicate, airy, intricate, and at the same time easy to make. This egg may look simple compared to the Emperor penguin or the super-complex egg with a surprise, but I like it no less than the others.

After creating the Totoro Easter egg, I began thinking of Easter eggs ideas, and now have enough of them for years to come, I believe. Although a birdcage was at the end of the list, it was among the first ones finished. The cage can be hung with the ring attached to its top or stand freely on its five legs, which is the way I prefer it. And there is a tiny yellow canary inside!

For my Easter eggs I use 1/16"-wide paper strips (1.5 mm), and this one isn't an exception. It is the size of a chicken egg.

Happy holidays!

Wow, this is truly beautiful! What a great idea to make it like a birdcage. I can't imagine how long it would take to build and shape this thing.
