Air plants are super easy to care for. No wonder they're so popular! Plus, soil is unnecessary, so you can display them in just about anything. Why not use what you already have? With this easy project, you can upcycle eggshells into charming holders. Once you add an air plant, it'll look like a pineapple. It's too cute. To make your own, check out this step-by-step tutorial.

Step 1: Things Needed

Eggshells

Bright yellow paint

Hot glue gun

Paint brush Bronze,

brown, or black marker

Step 2: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

Paint the eggshells yellow. Stand each one on scrap paper, open side down. If it keeps rolling over, break off pieces from the opening to level it out.

To make "feet," add four dots of hot glue to the bottom of each eggshell. They should form a square.
The goal is to place each dot right where the shell starts to curve into the bottom. It might seem tricky at first, but after a few tries, it's easier to figure out.

Now, it's time for the fun part. Using the marker, draw diamonds on the eggshell. Again, be careful. You can practice on paper before doing the real thing.

Step 3: Step 2

Picture of Step 2

Insert an air plant into each eggshell. If an opening is too big, some air plants might fall through. Play "musical chairs" until each air plant is paired with the perfect egg shell. To look like a pineapple, it should sit comfortably on the opening.

You don't have to copy these designs. Let your imagination run wild, and don't be afraid to experiment. The potential patterns are endless.
