Thrift Store Urn Mini Makeover

I picked up this silver urn at our local church thrift store last week.  (Is it an urn or an ewer - I'm not sure so someone please correct me if I'm calling it by the wrong name.)  Anywho, I love, love, love having bird's nests and eggs through out my house.  Put two and two together and you get this:
I added some faux nest material to the urn and added the three eggs on top. 
Then I tied some tea-stained seam binding around it.  I think it gives it a nice simple touch of color and now I have a new way to display my eggs!
