How to make your own eggshell planters

Have you ever tried gardening and ending up getting confused because of all the complicated stuff that you need to learn? My Pope has got you covered! We prepared a simpler and more fun gardening activity that you and your whole family could enjoy! Just follow this step-by-step guide and get started on making your own cute and quirky egg planters!


What you will need:

  • permanent markers
  • colorful papers or paint
  • glue
  • empty eggshells
  • toilet paper rolls
  • potting soil
  • grass seeds.


Step 1: Decorate the toilet paper rolls

Cut your toilet paper rolls into three and start to get crafty! You may opt to use colorful papers and glue to wrap the rolls, or you could also experiment and make your own designs by using colorful paint!


Step 2: Draw a face on the empty eggshells

Using your permanent marker, draw different faces on your eggshells. You could also try and draw different images if you want to play around with your design!


Step 3: Start planting in your eggshells

Place some potting soil inside the eggshell and sprinkle the grass seeds on top. Top it off with a little more potting soil, and you’re good to go!


Step 4: Water your plants everyday and watch their “hair” grow longer!

Make sure to just spray a small amount of water to your eggplanters!
