If you ever wanted to make your own Easter egg planters from real eggshells and maybe grow your own wheatgrass, now it's the perfect time to do that! With Easter just around the corner, you'll have plenty of time to gather all the supplies and bring a little bit of colorful spring ... indoors! :)
eggs
They make the most adorable planters for wheatgrass, flowers or other small plants and can be easily integrated into your chic Easter decor, tablescapes, Easter vignettes, place name holders and many more.

You can use brown or white eggs and with the back of a spoon gently tap the upper side of one egg until you have a small hole that will allow you to empty the interior of the egg in a bowl. Use your fingers to gently peel small pieces of the eggshell and gradually remove about 1/3 from the top. Do the same to empty the interior of all the eggs.
Use plenty of liquid dish soap and warm water to gently wash the interior of each eggshell, using your fingers and let them dry on a paper towel.

You can pain them with acrylic paint, chalkpaint or milk paint in your favorite colors. I used acrylic paint and just added dabs of darker colors over the white paint to create some beautiful soft pastels.

Let the paint dry before using them. I didn't use anything else other than paint, but you can use a sealer for protection, if you want.

Then I did a ''magic trick'' and created individual bases for all eggshells, so each one can stand on its own. You can click here to go to Dreams Factory (my blog) and find more details about this step.

You can involve your kids in the whole process of creating the Easter egg planters, I'm sure they will love making them and even planting some wheatgrass (or any other plants).
