I’ve been saving my egg shells for my final Easter décor post – and I’ve been cracking eggs differently too. I’ve had this project in mind and instead of wasting a bunch of eggs, I’ve been using a knife to crack the tops of the eggs and soaking the egg shells in hot soapy water and letting them dry.
Once I had enough egg shells, I decided I would rather have brown eggs for my project. I didn’t do any research but jumped in and soaked my egg shells in a muddy bath of used coffee grinds and a little water. For this light brown shade, I soaked them for about a half hour.
I love the uneven light brown shades on the eggs.
The eggs were gently stuffed with tissue paper and then a layer of moss added to peek over the edges. A pink silk flower and a few pink faux berries gives the neutral eggs a little splash of color.
I used my new favorite craft supply – vintage seam binding for the place card names.
Here’s a trick: to write on soft ribbon or fabric, use double sided tape to secure your ribbon to your desk or writing surface. Use a fine tip pen and handwrite your words. I used a silver gel pen.
To hold up the eggs, I used cardboard egg cartons also dipped in the coffee mud and quickly rinsed and then dried.
Hope to see you tomorrow for the Inspiration Board Spotlight. And for those of you who celebrate Easter, I want to wish you a glorious and wonderful day.
Thanks for visiting.
