When I initially saw seedlings sprouting from eggshells, I thought they looked cute, but I wasn't sure why someone would go to the trouble of planting seeds this way. Growing plants inside eggshells seemed a little over the top, but once I realized people were doing this as a clever way to transport sprouting plants into their garden, it made perfect sense. Once transported, the eggshell actually feeds your garden!
It's also helpful for people interested in growing herbs indoors, but don't have a garden. Growing them from an egg carton is a space saver and it's ecological and it can make for a lovely centerpiece.
With this in mind, I grabbed a carton of eggs, top soil, and seeds and started my project!
Pinterest provides a ton of creative ideas to dye Easter eggs as an alternative to the traditional dye kit we can find in stores. When I saw the option to dye Easter eggs with shaving cream pop up again and again, I decided to give it a try!
I loved this idea because all you need to complete the craft is shaving cream, eggs, and food coloring -- things I already had on hand. After spraying shaving cream into a shallow glass dish, we added drops of food coloring, swirled it around and rolled our eggs through.
After letting the eggs dry a bit with the colorful shaving cream in place, we wiped them off and were eager to discover whether or not the color actually stuck!
Easter is just around the corner, and Pinterest is brimming with fun kid-friendly potluck recipes to try. I couldn't resist the colorful spin on the traditional deviled eggs of these Jello flavored deviled eggs, and I quickly got to work!
This could be a great after-school treat, a fun dessert, or even a great addition to our Easter brunch spread.
The garden hose wreath has been making the rounds on Pinterest this season and I just couldn't ignore it! After a long winter I was actually looking forward to adding a cheerful splash of color to my front door and a decorative wreath sounded like the perfect solution.
I grabbed a 15-foot garden hose, a handful of flowers, a pair of gardening gloves, and some burlap ribbon, and I got to work!
I love the delicate look of the string Easter Eggs crafts I've been seeing on Pinterest and thought this week would be the perfect time to test them out! Whether you want to string together a garland for beautiful Easter decor or pop these string eggs in a bowl as a Springtime centerpiece, it could be the perfect touch in your home!
I created a stiffener by mixing 3 tablespoons of corn starch, 1 1/2 cups of boiled water, and 1 tablespoon of flour.
Every spring I look forward to seeing an abundance of Peeps marshmallow treats popping up in our grocery store. All this time I thought they were only good for snacking on. Little did I know the idea of using the Easter treats as spring home decor has been spreading across Pinterest like wildfire!
After viewing a plethora of different Peeps topiary centerpieces, I decided I needed to get in on that Easter craft action too!
Mason jar terrariums look like a really fun way to bring a miniature piece of nature inside. After researching many of the pins I saw on Pinterest showing how to put something like this together, I decided to give it a try.
All the materials you need to complete this project can be found at a craft store or in your own home. I grabbed a mason jar, pebbles, dirt, moss and a couple fun figurines and got to work!
