How to make a sweet little posy vase from an eggshell – perfect for tiny flower bouquets on Easter, Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day — or just to give someone you love along with breakfast in bed!
by Jane Lake
- Half an eggshell
- glass candle holder, egg cup, or small dish
- sea glass, seashells, colored sand, or flat glass marbles
- bouquet of small fresh flowers
Save that egg shell from breakfast and make a sweet little posy vase for tiny flowers. This looks lovely on the breakfast table, on a breakfast tray or in any corner that needs a little splash of bright color.
You will need a glass candle holder for the display shown in our photograph. Simply support the eggshell in the area meant to hold a tapered candle in place. Surround the eggshell with sea glass, seashells, colored sand or flat glass marbles.
Add water to the eggshell.
Cut a few short stemmed flowers and arrange in the eggshell.
You could support the eggshell in a pretty egg cup, or in a small bowl, supporting the egg with the items that you choose to surround it; sea glass or colored marbles work well for this.
Decorate the egg shell if you wish – use Easter egg dye or paint with acrylics.
