It’s official. I’m on an Easter egg decorating bender. My post from yesterday got me thinking about not just using eggshells as a container for an air plant, but what about using an eggshell as a de facto container garden? I had to give it a try. I made a run for my local greenhouse to see what little plants would fit inside an eggshell. My requirements were that they be hearty enough to withstand transplanting and that they look festive and spring-y for an Easter table. The answer? Cat grass. Done.
Once I had my grass in the eggshell containers, though, they looked a little plain. I realized these little babies would make perfect placeholders, with a quick flick of my Sharpie pen. Pretty AND useful? My kind of DIY project.
