Recycled Egg Centerpiece

Before you toss those cracked eggs while making your breakfast this morning, check out this easy DIY centerpiece! It features cracked eggs, moss, and early Spring flowers for an enchanting and whimsical table setting!

Step one is to crack your egg, try to crack near the end - not the middle like normal. Empty out your egg and rinse the shell. Set it aside, and continue making breakfast!

Now that you've eaten and you're energized, put a tiny amount of water into the egg and place petite blooms into the open egg shell.

Tuck the eggs anywhere you want a sweet, unexpected touch of spring. These tiny bouquets are like microscopic works of art. Like tiny still-life paintings.Here I've nestled one into a cut up egg carton.

To make the centerpiece simple place a tray on the table. Center a favorite teapot in the middle and tuck moss around the base. Now place your little egg arrangements around resting in the moss. Tuck in a few other eggs for interest - I've used quail eggs. Fill the pot with a mix of ferns and flowers for an enchanting woodland effect!This was part of a Make-Something-From-Nothing challenge. You can see the entire tablescape on my blog.
