Instructions:

  1. Paint your design of choice onto the egg. Pretty it up with fun and funky designs to make your garden dazzle.
  2. Let it sit to dry for a few hours, or until they are dry to the touch
  3. Fill emptied-out egg shells half-way with soil.
  4. Add your small plant or seed, then fill the rest of the shell with soil to the top of the egg
  5. Water your new plant and watch it grow.

 

Bonus: When the plants grow and need repotting, you can use the crushed egg shells as fertilizer.
