Egg Planter

How would you like to make miniature planters for Easter using eggshells?
Eggshell plant holder
Tap the pointed end of an egg firmly with a table knife to just break through the shell; turn it slightly and tap again to remove the "cap." Discard the contents and rinse the shell. Next, create a drainage hole by carefully pushing the point of a small knife through the bottom of the shell.
Filling egg shell with small plant
Gently remove about half the soil from around the roots of a small plant. Ease the roots and remaining soil into the shell; add a small amount of soil to cover the roots.
Egg planters
Play with different types of plants to feature, such as these colorful alyssum seedlings. You can also experiment with their presentation by tucking them into egg cups, Easter grass, or another springtime decoration.
