I saw an article on apartment therapy awhile back about using egg shells as seed starters. What a great idea! Many people compost their egg shells, so we know that they break down well. We don’t have to worry about frost in Northern California right now, but we still decided to plant some seeds indoors and watch them grow. When they are ready to put in the garden the egg shell goes into the ground too!
Every time I used an egg I’d rinse out the shells and set it aside. Pretty soon we had enough to start a dozen seedlings! Naturally, it’s not uncommon to lean towards the easy Easter egg projects that we’ve all grown up on. You know the drill; buy a kit, dip some eggs, and call it a day. And while this tradition will never get old, I can’t help but encourage people to shake things up a bit. There are just too many awesome techniques, materials, and ideas out there. It’s basically an entirely new set of reasons to get creative.
The techniques used in these projects are on the unconventional side. I’m talking about dyeing with silks, painting with acrylics, and applying tin foil. Luckily, each and every one of them are still totally doable at home.
