Tutorial: an eggs garden for Easter!

A friend of mine asked me an idea to put on the table, in a creative way, hard-boiled eggs for Easter. 
I watched eggs shells and I thought they have the same color of terracotta pots, so I decided to turn them into cute little vases of flowers.

 Here's how!

-First of all hard-boiled eggs

- Green and brown cardboard
- Double-sided tape
- Little fabric flowers

1- Cut a strip of green cardboard that will be the stand for egg

2- Make many cuts to give the effect of grass

3- Cut a little circle from brown cardboard, it will be the earth in the pot, fix it with double-sided tape

4- Fix a fabric flower on the "earth"

You can also cut a stem and a leaf from the green cardboard

Happy Easter!!

Easter is coming...

have two items in my shop dedicated to Easter, a big egg all covered with flowers and a cute basket centerpiece:

Flowers egg with stand

An explosion of spring flowers in pastel and vibrant colors, one of a kind, egg covered with flowers hand made one by one, it has been an hard work!!  :)
An important centerpiece, a really original way to decorate your home for Easter.
Egg is on display on a stand, a terracotta vase, it is not fixed to the stand so you can rotate it as you want, since every side is different!

Easter Basket
A basket centerpiece with ivory, pink, light blue, green, purple, orange and yellow eggs and among them there are timid violets, sumptuous roses, vivid sunflowers and candid daisies.
