Hello everyone! Did you have a good Easter weekend? We had a rough Saturday morning (everyone had the crankies) but it got much better after that.
Saturday afternoon was spent dying our eggs, which was a lot of fun for the kids. Because I knew Easter was coming up, I had also saved some eggshells just for dying. Sounds weird, right? Well, I got the idea after seeing a Pin this blog post at cantstopmakingthings.com about giving a wooden box a sort of mosaic look with eggshells. I thought it’d be even cooler if the eggs were colored, so I started saving empty egg shells. Dying the shells was a bit tricky as they fell apart a bit and were difficult to retrieve from the dye cups. But I think they look nice!
My hands, on the other hand, are a different story.
When I eventually use them to make some art, I will post it. I hope they will turn out okay because I’m not sure I got all of the inner skins off them–we’ll see when I do it.
Do you have any unusual/creative uses for eggshells?
