Easter Wreath Made from Eggshells and Pink Kisses®
Normally you hide the eggs at Easter, but in this Easter DIY they get to be in the spotlight for once. We show you how you can easily upcycle old eggshells with a few Pink Kisses® stalks into a beautiful Easter decoration idea. Happy Easter!
What You Need
- At least ten eggshells
- Double-sided tape (or different glue such as from a hot glue gun)
- Maybe a plate or round tray to help you shape the wreath
- Decorative gravel or sand
- A Pink Kisses® mini carnation
- More flowers or twigs
- Small flower scissors
Prepare the Eggshells
The best option is to collect the eggshells you need for this DIY over a period of time, whenever you use eggs in the kitchen. Alternatively, you can cook or bake a recipe that uses lots of eggs, such as a sponge cake or an omelette, to go with this DIY. You will need at least ten eggshells for this Easter wreath – but you can use more if you want to make a larger wreath.
The important thing is not to break the eggs at random. The easiest way to make this DIY wreath is to break the shells only at the top, so that you can still easily put the flowers inside.
Make a Wreath from Eggshells
Once you have collected enough eggshells, make a ring out of them. Cut small pieces of double-sided tape, scrunch them together and use them to attach the eggshells to each other in a circle until you have a closed wreath. Alternatively, you can use other adhesive materials such as a hot glue.
Tip: You can use a plate or round tray as a work surface and use its edge as a guide to shape the eggshells into a circle.
Fill the Eggshells
Sprinkle some decorative gravel or sand into the eggshells – this makes it easier to put the stalks in. Of course, pink or rose-coloured gravel is ideal for the Pink Kisses®.
Then cut flower stems from the Pink Kisses® and stick them into the eggshells. To add variety, you can add other flowers – either dry or fresh – or flowering twigs – the sky’s the limit!
If you want the wreath to last longer, you can also fill the eggshells with water. In this case, make sure that as much of the eggshell as possible is preserved so that you can easily fill in the water. However, in our experience, the Pink Kisses® stems still look beautiful even after several days inside eggshells filled only with decorative gravel. The watered version of the Easter wreath is therefore only necessary if you also use other cut flowers that dry out more quickly.
