How-To Make Easter Vases out of Dyed Egg Shells

Posted on 31 March 2017

Get creative and celebrate Easter this year with a pop of color, sparkles, and flowers! Dying eggs has always been a family tradition in my household for years, but this year we're trying new ways to glam our dinning room table for the month.

In this blog, we show you how to make cute glitter egg vases for your fresh flowers. View our Pinterest page here for more ideas on how to incorporate blooms with festive Easter eggs.

I added Natural White Football Mums to my egg vase because they are unique long- lasting flowers that wouldn't tip over my egg vases.

Other Chrysanthemums that would work well for this particular craft are, but not limited to: Pompom Cushion Daisies, or Button Pompom Mums.


What You’ll Need:

Eggs and flowers

Step 1: Hydrate your flowers

Cut your stem tips diagonally and place in a container of fresh water to hydrate for 2-3 hours prior to crafting. 

Step 2: Boil your eggs

Crack your egg at the top leaving a small circular opening roughly 1 inch in diameter and remove the insides of the egg, but saving one egg white for later. Boil your eggs for about 5 minutes to harden the shell.

Step 3: Dye your eggs

Fill a large mug with the mixture of water, vinegar, and food coloring. I used 15 drops of food coloring to get light pastel colors and 20 drops for darker hues. Leave your eggs in the mixture for 5 minutes or until desired shade is reached.



Carefully remove the egg and set aside on a dry on a surface.


Step 4: Just add sugar

Once dried, coat your egg in egg white liquid and roll them in sugar. This gives the eggs a sparkly all-natural look.

Step 5: Form a base + Add Flowers

Once your eggs are dry you have the option of placing your eggs in small egg cups or hot gluing your eggs to a base such as a serving platter or tray. Once secure add a little water to each egg and then have fun adding flowers!



The boys asked that their eggs not have any glitter and be in their favorite colors- blue and red!
