Eggshell Terrariums

9 Materials
Eggshell Terrariums and more eggshell crafts that are perfect for Easter and spring decorating

Crack, empty, and clean your eggshells.

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

Pour the melted wax into the eggshell with a wick.

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.

For your eggshell terrariums poke a small hole in the top of the egg to thread through some string or twine.

Add shredded paper or other nest material.

Add baby chicks or eggs to your nest.

Hang your Easter eggshell terrariums on a tree.

Terrariums, planters, and candles all made from eggshells!

Eggshell crafts are perfect for Easter, spring, or year round!
