And these from Craftionary.net's Easter EGGS pinterest board
So I broke out the pan and boiled me up some eggs just for this purpose!
Then I got to the task of hollowing out the eggs. In retrospect I could have blown out the raw eggs using the pinhole method. But here is what I did to the boiled eggs:
|boiled egg, sharp knife, small spoon|
|insert sharp tip carefully and cut the top off the egg|
|Hollow out. If you are lucky the egg will just pop out. If not, you'll have to scrape it out|
|empty egg shells. I let them dry outside for a day or two|
|Then fill with potting soil and add plants. I have tons of succulents here in SoCal|
Oh I poked a small hole in the bottom of each eggshell (with a very sharp corn holder) before filling in order to provide drainage. I also placed them on a bed of potting soil to allow them to drain. I hope these cuttings will grow and then they can be transplanted. I am wondering how long the eggshells will remain intact. These would also be cute using dyed eggs from easter (using natural dyes of course....I hope to have a crafty post about this in the nearish future!)
What do you think?? Cute, right??
