Flowering Egg Shells
It looks like spring has sprung around here with all the flowers popping up as the temperatures warm and the sun shines. We are still waiting for “El Nino” to hit but until then, I’m soaking up the sun and making some flowering egg shells with clippings from our yard.
This would make a wonderful centerpiece for an Easter table!
I’m so happy to be back again for our monthly 10 minute decorating party! Make sure to check out all the wonderful quick and easy Easter decor ideas at the end of the post.
Crack the narrow end of a raw egg and break away a small portion. You can also remove the top quarter or half if so desired.
Empty the contents of the egg. Rinse the shell and let dry.
Fill half of the shell with dirt.
Insert small, fresh spring flowers and spritz with water daily.
I’m thinking these would be really cute displayed in a porcelain egg crate, I have my eyes set on this one!
These lasted about a week. If you want them to last longer you can start with seeds, place in a sunny spot and wait for seeds to sprout (about a week).

That is so cute!
I bet those would make perfect seed starter containers for herbs or flowers with a convenient biodegradable shell!
I’m actually going to try that and see how it goes, I had read about starting seeds that way awhile back 🙂
SUCH a sweet idea!!!
