Dyeing and decorating Easter eggs is great and all, but there are so many other projects you can make with eggs around the holiday. Like a Gin Fizz served in an eggshell. Or an herb starter. Today we鈥檙e going to use these poultry creations to make hanging vases. Not only are they delicate looking, but they鈥檙e also actually delicate, so be careful, ya hear?

Materials:

鈥 fresh eggs

鈥 fresh flowers

鈥 twine

Tools:

鈥 bowl

鈥 turkey lacer (aka a strong pin or embroidery needle)

Materials

Instructions:

  1. Gently break the egg in half, removing the yolk and the whites. Wash your egg halves.
  2. Poke holes opposite each other at the top edge of each egg half, using the turkey lacer. Be very careful not to crack the shell.
  3. Thread twine through each hole and tie a knot on the inside of the egg.
  4. Hang and add blooms.
Cracking-Egg

Crack your egg gingerly on the side of a bowl or countertop. Try your best to create a straight line around the edge of the shell. Pull the egg apart and discard the yolk and whites in a bowl. Save them for a delicious egg dish after you鈥檙e done with your project.

Using your turkey lacer, poke two holes in your half shell. They should be directly across from each other and about a centimeter down from the top edge. This part is NOT easy. You have to be really careful not to crack the entire egg. But don鈥檛 worry 鈥 if you do, you can try again. Invite some friends over. Your egg dish might turn into a brunch.

Adding-Twine

Once you鈥檝e successfully punctured holes in the shell, cut some twine and thread a piece through each hole. Tie a knot on the inside of the egg.

First

Hang your new little planters on a branch and add fresh flowers.
