Sweet and dainty, springtime Easter flowers in eggshell pots are super cute. Fill with faux flowers, fresh cut flowers or plant seeds and watch them sprout. Tuck into spaces needing some happy after a dreary winterscape.
Here is how to make Easter Egg Shell Pots
Easter Flowers in Eggshell Pots
- raw eggs
- Small to medium size silk flowers. I used bushes and cut stems apart.
- length of 3/4-inch PVC pipe and saw to cut to about 3/16-inch rings. We started to cut with a hacksaw but ended up using a table saw.
- Hot Glue gun and glue sticks
- glass beads (about 6 for each eggshell)
- dried moss
- wire cutters
What I did:
- Gently poke a hole into the pointed end of egg using a metal skewer or needle. Chip off some of the shell and pour out egg. Wash and allow eggshell to dry.
- I tried several ideas to keep the eggshells standing including wooden pieces used for clothes pin dolls and even a dollop of hot glue but found rings made from PVC piping worked best. Saw 1/4″ sections and sand to smooth.
- After centering on egg, apply a circle of hot glue being sure glue makes contact with both ring and egg. Allow to cool.
- Cut flower stems to desired length allowing extra for forming a base to anchor securely in eggshell . Using a pen or pencil, twist extra length of wire into a coil.
- Squeeze a dollop of hot glue into the eggshell and insert flower stem coil; hold until firm.
- For added weight, drop glass beads into eggshell around the wire flower stem. I used six beads per eggshell.
- Carefully fill opening with dried moss.
