DIY Blooming Easter Eggs

Eggs that Bloom!

Getting tired of doing the same Easter tablescape every year? Take your traditional Easter eggs to a whole other level with this fun DIY Blooming Egg activity, perfect for the whole family!

Floral Eggs

Items you need:
  • Carton of Eggs
  • Fresh Flowers
  • Flower Clippers
  • Sharp Knife or Carving Tool
  • Paper Towels (this will get messy!)
  • Water
  • Flower Food
  • Optional:
    • Decorative Egg Cups (may use carton)
    • Mason Jar (to save egg yolks)

Instructions:
  1. Start by carefully slicing opening a hole in the top of each egg, leaving enough space to put 2-3 stems inside.
    Tip: Once you make a small hole, peel away the shell to make it bigger, so you avoid cracking the eggshell.
  2. Dump egg yolks into a container to save for cooking later or pour it into the garbage.
  3. Wash each eggshell out with soap and water, be careful you don’t crack the shells.
  4. Mix flower food into a watering can or a cup of water and distribute the treated water through all of the eggshells. Leave some room in the top so it does not overflow once you add the flowers.
  5. Using flower clippers, cut your flower/greenery stems to arrange among each eggshell. Make sure you are giving a fresh cut to the stems every time you are placing your floral into the water. Adjust the size of the holes in the eggshells as needed.
Set your table! Using the carton or decorative egg cups, place them around the table or in the center with a runner, floral arrangement, and tableware!

Succulent Eggs

  • Carton of Eggs
