These cute Easter egg succulent planters are super easy to make! Just paint and plant for a colorful addition to your spring decor!
These bright and cheery egg shell succulent planters are super quick and easy to make, and they make a great Easter decoration or hostess gift!
What You’ll Need:
- Ceramic Egg Shell Planters
- Acrylic Paint
- Assorted Succulents
- Potting Soil
- Optional: Gloss White Spray Paint and Clear Satin Finish
I started by painting the egg shells with the acrylic paint. Most of the colors only required one coat of paint for solid coverage, but the yellow and green each needed three coats. My ceramic egg holder base was looking a bit dingy and dirty, so I gave it a coat of gloss white spray paint, and it looked a million times nicer.
I allow the egg shell planters to dry completely and then coated them with clear satin finish.
Next, I partially filled the egg shell with potting soil, and added the succulents.
I continued to add plants until all of the eggs were filled, and then I spent awhile playing around with the arrangement until it looked exactly the way I wanted it to.
These are pretty much my favorite spring project EVER. So quick and easy, and I adore the bright splash of color that they bring to my decor!
I debated adding some additional embellishment with temporary foil tattoos, but in the end I decided that I liked the clean and simple colored eggs. I may revisit the idea of foil tattoo eggs in another project though!
You can make these egg shell succulent planters in any color palette to match your decor – I’m seriously crushing on these bright pastel shades!
