Easter is early this year (March 27th), so here’s my first of many DIYs I’m doing. I think these Blooming Easter Eggs would be the perfect addition to a Easter tablescape or a lovely spring accent to your bookshelves or mantel. And there are so many different possibilities for this craft. You could die the eggs, keep the flowers monochromatic, use succulents (oh, yes!) or group the final eggs together in an egg carton for a full garden look. I love a craft that you can put your own spin on. Plus, these are very easy. You only need a few minutes and there is zero mess.
- Eggs (I used brown eggs)
- 3-4 small faux flowers per egg
See below for detailed pictures of the different steps.
- First you must empty the egg(s). Just gently crack the top of your egg using a butter knife and then pick away the egg shell until you have a small opening. Dump the egg white and yolk into a bowl and use for scrambled eggs! (I did this in the morning so I really did have scrambled eggs.)
- Rinse out your egg shells with water and dish soap. Before moving onto the next step, make sure your eggs are dry. To speed up the drying process, I put my eggs in a muffin pan and then baked them in oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes.
- Once your eggs are dry, gently pack each shell with moss.
- Next, cut your flower stems using a wire cutter so they are short enough to poke into the moss. Arrange 3-4 flowers in each egg. And you’re done! Can you believe how easy this is?
I placed my eggs in individual wooden egg cup I found at Target, but you could repurpose your egg carton or use an egg cup you have. The last time I went thrifting I noticed a lot of egg cups at the Antique Mall.
Now, to paint or not to paint the wooden egg holders? What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
