Don't you love when trash suddenly becomes a treasure?

There are many awesome uses for the shells, after you've already enjoyed the egg. The egg shell is a pretty great craft item, especially for those beautiful mosaics or decorative Easter Eggs .
Toady in this ibel I am going to share a new idea how to use egg shells in a different way.

Hope you all going to like it..

Step 1: Materials

  • Empty Eggshell
  • Glue
  • Scissor
  • Paper (Pink & Green Color)
  • Beads
  • Slotted tool

Step 2: Clean & Blow Egg Out From Egg-shell

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 small straw (like those thin straws you can find in any coffee shop) and blow air from your mouth, but you can also use a syringe to push air into the hole. Repeat until you no longer are blowing liquid egg, but are blowing nothing but air completely through the shell.

Now clean and dry the intact eggshells.

Step 3: Making Paper Roses

Take a pink square paper. Cut a 1.5" circle out of it. Cut the circle into a spiral, trying to keep the thickness even throughout. Start rolling by a slotted tool the flower starting with the outside. Roll as tight as possible keeping the bottom edge aligned at 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.

Step 4: Making Leaves

Draw and cut out green leaves of various shapes from the green color paper.

Step 5: Finishing the Bouquet

Take the egg shell & put glue on it. Fill 3/4 part of the eggshell with the small rosettes.Glue the leaves on other part.
Now add small beads into the center of the rosettes. Now decorate it with burlap or linen fabric if you wish so.

If you have any questions, ask me in comment section. try it and please send me a picture with your bouquet. I would love to see how it turns out!

Really cool, but why use and egg as the center? To me it looks like the egg makes it unnessesary fragile and can easily be replaced by a ball of crushed paper. (Sorry i'm a scientist and like to know the reason behind things, not trying to critisize your beatifull piece) thank you for sharing.
Hello. Thanks for your statement. It's a recycled craft project to prove that if anyone have enough time and patient, he can make beautiful things from scraps.. just need to have a crafty mind.. :) That's it..
