We Created the Tiniest Planters—and You're Going to Love Them
These petite planters have us starry-eyed. Put them at each place setting on your Easter table so friends and family have a little treat to take home.
Here's What You'll Need:
Decorative paper cupcake liners
Colorful gift shred
Bowl of water
Assorted flowers and/or greenery
Let's start with the tricky part—opening the eggs. Using a toothpick, poke holes in the top of the eggshell until you're able to gently remove the top portion of the egg shell. Chances are, you might break an egg or two in the process (we'll admit we certainly did), so you might want to have a few extra eggs on hand.
Once the hole is large enough, dump out the egg, then rinse the shell clean in a bowl of water. Repeat this process for each egg.
Fill decorative paper cupcake liners with coordinating gift shred. We used a variety of colors and patterns here to make a pretty display, but opt for whatever color or colors you like. Nestle an egg securely in the gift shred. Fill with water. Select a pretty little bloom or delicate sprig of greenery for each egg vase.
Alternatively, you can fill each egg with a bit of potting soil and a tiny fern, if you prefer. And, who doesn't love a baby fern?
Place one planter on each place setting on your Easter table. Now, if you want to get fancy, tuck a nametag beneath the planter so guests won't have to do the shuffle trying to figure out where they should sit. And don't froget to tell your friends and family to take their planters home—they're the perfect size for displaying on a kitchen windowsill.
