How to make mini Easter planters from empty eggshells
Making miniature Easter egg planters that are adorned with broken eggshells is one of my favorite DIY projects. In addition to being adorable, they are an eco-friendly way to add greenery to your home. This is the way you can make them in four simple steps.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies – You will need hard-boiled and raw eggs that have been blown, potting soil or mix, small plants or seeds of your choice, and any desired decoration materials, such as paint.
Step 2: Blowing the Eggs Out: To begin, use a pin or needle to poke two holes in each end of the eggshells. Then, blow through one hole until the contents fall out from the other side. Then peel the hard-boiled eggs and save the shells.
Step 3: Decorating the eggshells is where your imagination comes into play! Get imaginative by sticking broken eggshell pieces onto each smothered egg. When everything has dried, simply fill it with potting soil and some small plants like succulents or lily of the valley. For best results, use strong craft glue and, if desired, something like Mod Podge for extra shine and protection on the top. Then, place them in a sunny location, either indoors or outdoors, where they will undoubtedly bring joy throughout the season.
Step 4: Final details – When wrapped up enlivening every grower, give them a last touch by adding greeneries around its edges for additional style prior to showing them any place wanted in your home! If you want, you can also add some vibrant stones to the area around the planters for a more decorative touch.
How to make eggshell hanging ball ornaments
Making hanging balls decorated with empty eggs, moss or feathers is a fun and creative way to decorate for Easter. It’s an easy DIY project that will give your home a natural, festive look!
First, you’ll need some hollowed out eggs. You can save up the ones from your breakfast eggs or ask around friends and family who might have some saved up too. Once you have enough of them, rinse them out with warm water and let them dry completely before proceeding with the next step.
Carefully crack open each egg in the middle so that you can remove all of its contents (you may want gloves for this part!). Once done cleaning out the shells thoroughly, rinse off any remaining bits before allowing them to dry completely.
You’ll need moss, feathers, or other materials like thread for embellishment. To begin, use the proper material to stick the decorations to the outside of each styrofoam ball using a hot glue gun or glue dots. Once everything is securely fastened, hang them on string at various heights about your house to make a stunning display for any Easter party!
