DIY – Hanging Flower Eggs

Have you already thought about what your Easter table will look like? No? Thankfully, I have a DIY idea to show you how to decorate at home.  This is a really easy and inexpensive  idea. You can do it by yourself or with the kids. Be creative! I used just pink tulips (my favorite flower), but you are free to choose your favorite flower and play with colors.

What you’ll need:

*White and pink ribbons

*White zipties

*Flowering tree branches

*Tulips or your favorite flowers

*Eggshells

*Garden clippers

*Scissors

Fasten 2-3 zipties around the branches

With the scissors straighten out the holes in the eggshells.

Squeeze a line of glue around the eggshells ( top to bottom, bottom to top), and place the ribbon on it.

Wait for the glue to dry.

Cut the flowers and leaves off of the stems.

Pour a little water inside the eggshells and put the leaves and flowers inside them.

Tie two ribbons close to opposite ends of the branches to form triangles when hung. Tie each eggshell to the branches.
