Easter Eggshell Garden
Next time you dye eggs for Easter, you can also use leftover dye for empty eggshells, and make a cute miniature eggshell garden that will bring spring colors to your home. A lovely crafting project for the whole family - we did this one with brown eggs a long time ago, and it turned out just adorable. Follow these simple steps, and you'll have an adorable Easter-themed mini garden in no time.
- egg dye
- a spoonful of potting soil per eggshell
- an eggshell holder (egg carton is a good solution!)
Cleaning Eggshells For Crafts
Begin by tapping lightly all the way around the narrower end of the egg about ⅓ down from the top, creating an opening in the shell. Carefully pull off the shell “cap” and pour egg contents into a bowl. Rinse the shell out with water.
Make a tiny drainage hole at the bottom (I used a pin) and place the eggshell into a holder (an egg carton is a zero-cost and easy solution).
how to dye empty eggshells
Using egg dye, dye eggshells the same way you dye hard-boiled eggs. Place eggs on a few layers of tissue paper to dry. This way, you'll prevent spilling the egg dye onto the plate or counter.
How to Start Seeds in Eggshells
Using a spoon, fill the shell with potting soil to just below the shell opening. Water it well.
Plant the seeds of your choice according to the directions on the seed package.
Place them onto a window sill or somewhere else with enough daylight. Take care the soil is moist all the time.
Eggshells provide the seeds with a safe and cute harbor to sprout.
Just on time if you start now! Also, feel free to save the idea for later:
