I know I have said it in several posts, but I can’t get enough of Pinterest. I like to blog about the projects I have completed as a direct result of inspiration from Pinterest and the blogs I find through the site. This project was originally from the blog of Lilliedale. Click on the link: Lilliedale to go to directions for this sweet little Spring decoration. It was easy to do, but if you create this craft with children I think it is a project for five plus years. The eggshells are delicate and easily broken and toddler fingers would have a hard time putting the entire project together.
I used brown eggs and a cardboard egg container with foam on the bottom to protect the carton from water. The banner is made out of scraps of things I had around the house: plastic drinking straws, garden string and paper scraps. I planted cat grass and it grows very quickly. I mow it quite frequently with a pair of scissors. I water the small garden every other day a tablespoon at a time.
This craft cost almost nothing. You can use any type of seed you have on hand, or you can even gather some moss from your yard and plant that in the eggshells.
