For the candles, I used crayons! Peel the wrappers, break into pieces, and melt.

Eggshell planters! Fill eggshells with soil. Then plant seeds and wait for them to sprout. To transfer the planters to their final pot, crack the eggshell and plant them in the ground.

You can also use your eggshell planters to hold flower clippings or succulents that you are regrowing.

    Very nice ideas, however using the term "terrariums" threw me. I looked it up in the dictionary (the old fashioned book with paper pages), and it is a vivarium without standing water! - skip to the "V's"---Vivarium means a place / enclosure to keep plants and animals indoors; so I guess as the fake chicks are animals and there is no standing water, the word was used correctly? To me terrariums are enclosed vessels that contain the moisture for real plants and animals to survive - like we did in elementary school.
