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.
Another idea for your egg shell planters after the jump…

Hanging egg plants!
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.
