There are many creative bloggers who have shared cute egg crafts and design online. I have pinned so many cute ideas over the years, and this spring it is time to try a few. First, about a month ago I started saving my egg shells when baking or scrambling eggs. Instead of cracking an egg in two, I hit the top of the egg with a spoon. Removed the top section of shell and poured out the egg. The shell was washed well and set to dry. I will be using them as little vases later on. To hold the egg shell upright, I cut out cups from a cardboard egg carton.
The cardboard cups will hold boiled eggs as well as the empty shells.
I used a fine tip sharpie to draw faces on hard boiled brown eggs.
I shelled two of my hard boiled eggs. I made a small cut on top of the eggs.
Then I cut a thin slice of carrot to make a round top. I pushed the slice into the slit on top of the egg.
I made a small hole on each side of “face” for eyes. You can use seeds or any dark bit of food to make 2 eyes. For a beak, make a small hole between eyes and a little lower. Put fragment of carrot in hole.
I made 2 of these “chicks”. Then I put fresh celery leaves, carrot peels, and fresh rosemary on a plate for a nest. You can use any greenery like herbs, lettuce, etc. The two chicks are put on the nest. If the bottom of the egg isn’t flat, cut a thin slice off bottom to level. I put a lace placemat on a clear plastic tray. The plate of 2 chicks on a nest is put in the middle of the tray on the table.
I put the two decorated hard boiled eggs in cups on each side of the plate. I then added a little shell vase with water and periwinkles. A purple on each side of vignette.
I like the little vignette. I hope you enjoyed it too.
