Recycled Flower Bouquet from Empty Eggshell 

Updated: Nov 2, 2019

Don't you like once trash suddenly becomes a treasure? There are several amazing uses for the shells, once you've already enjoyed the egg. The egg shell could be a pretty nice craft item, particularly for those stunning mosaics or ornamental Easter Eggs . Today I'm about to share a unique idea to use eggshells in a completely different way. Hope you all going to find it irresistible.

Materials

Empty Eggshell

Glue

Scissor

Paper (Pink & Green Color)

Beads

Slotted tool


Method

Wash the eggs with soap and water, rinse and dry to get rid of any germs. Poke two holes in the smaller end first, then the other end (top and bottom).To pierce the initial hole, use a pin or buy an egg-pricker available from specialty suppliers. The holes then need to be made bigger, so you can get the egg contents out. Make the hole you are going to blow through a little larger. Pierce the yolk and break up the membranes with a needle, wire, straightened paper clip, toothpick, or small balloon pump. Gently push the instrument in and out of the hole repeatedly. Use a thin straw and blow air from your mouth, you can also use a syringe to push air into the hole. Repeat until you are blowing nothing but air completely through the shell. Now clean and dry the empty eggshells.

Take a pink square paper. Cut a 1.5" circle out of it. Cut the circle into a spiral. Try to keep the thickness even throughout. Now start rolling by a slotted tool. Roll tightly & keep the bottom edge aligned all times. Dab a small amount of glue in the middle of the circle. It will serve as a little base for your rosette. Push the rolled part a little to stick well. Make a lot of cute small roses.



Now draw and cut out green leaves of various shapes.


Take the egg shell, dab some glue on it. Now fill 3/4 part of the eggshell with the small pink rosettes.


Glue the leaves on back side. Add small beads into the center of the rosettes. Now decorate it with burlap or linen fabric or other establishments if you wish so. If you've got any queries, ask me in comment section. Try and send me a pictures with your bouquet.

I would love to see how it turns out!
