• DIY Gold Egg Shell Planter

    make your own egg carton planter

    Next time you make scrambled eggs, or a key lime pie, or lemon bars, save the shells and cardboard carton to make a pretty spring planter for mini succulents. Spray paint the carton gold (just one coat worked for me) because it makes everything feel more special. You could even cut the carton into smaller sections to give them as little gifts.

    Tips: Scratch with your needle at the point you want to create your hole and ‘screw’ the needle in to prevent cracking. Also, a dab of clear nail polish on the inside will keep it from cracking as well. Tie a knot at the top on each side. Plant your succulents inside and hang from a knob or wire.succulenteggs4

      Wowzers! Hello psychic connection?!
      I also posted eggs + succulents yesterday (on my baby blog)!
      And of course I incorporated gold (polka dots) but I love the idea of spraying the cartons. So pretty!

      Love succulents and the gold, but the thought of using old egg shells kinda grosses me out.

        I’m assuming you just rinse them out first!

      Love this idea (the gold spray paint is a nice touch).

      Wondering, though, why I had to click through the jump only to be told to check out Instagram? I wanted to pin finished product, but can’t w/ instructions (and it’s an unnecessary click). :(
