Keep reading to learn how!
Supplies You’ll Need:
- Eggs (Raw)
- Hot glue and gun
- 1/8" x 1/16" disc magnet
- Egg dye
Steps for DIY Magnetic Egg Planters:
- Dye your eggs with food coloring or your favorite egg dying kit as you normally would. You can use any color food coloring, or choose multiple colors to create a marbled look. Make sure to let the eggs dry completely before moving on to the next step.
- Using a sharp object, poke a hole in the shell and peel the shell so that there is only the bottom two thirds of the shell left. Empty out the yolk in the shell.
- Rinse the egg out and let it dry. Using the hot glue gun, glue on the magnet to the back of the egg. Let the glue dry and magnet set for 2 hours.
- These eggs can now act like mini vases! Fill the egg with water and mixed flowers. You could also add some dirt and plant a mini succulent. If you’re looking to extend the lifespan of these magnets, use faux floral.
This is a great spring activity for families looking to add a little touch of Easter to every room of the house.
