Easter Egg Planters Materials:
Easter Egg Planters Directions:
• Crack open your Easter eggs and separate the rounded bottom from the oblong top. You will just use the bottom for this project.
• Use a small paintbrush to paint the outside edge of each egg (where they connect with the other side of the Easter egg) with gold paint. You may need to apply 2 or 3 coats for the gold paint to be noticed. Allow to dry completely in between coats of gold paint.
• When the paint is dry, tear a small piece of parchment paper and set it on a table. Heat your glue gun.
• Squeeze some hot glue onto the parchment paper until your dot is about the same size as a quarter.
• Press an Easter egg into the glue while it is still wet. When the glue dries, peel it off the paper and it will stand on its own. Repeat for all eggs.
• This is what it will look like when you are finished.
• Fill the eggs with potting soil.
• Place your succulents inside each egg. Add a little bit of water to keep your plants moist.
• Place your Easter egg planters in a sunny location and you are good to go!
These really are a cute Easter craft, perfect for spring which is right around the corner! Use them as decor, as table favors, as Easter favors, or simply make them because they are adorable!
