Pottery Barn Eggs

Have you noticed that Pottery Barn ( and several other retailers) are putting numbers on all of their containers? Why not the humble egg?
 Empty out an egg by gently tapping the pointiest end until cracked. Take small scissors and gently remove the top. Pour the contents in a bowl. Wash out the insides and dry. Put a finger or two inside the egg to help reinforce the shell and using StazOn ink and a numeral stamp, very gently stamp on the number rocking the stamp side to side and up and down. You probably won't get the entire number to print. This is where a very fine Sharpie comes into play. Lightly fill in the missed portions of the number. Any mistakes can be removed with acetone or fingernail polish remover.
Use curtain rings as egg stands, fill the eggs with dirt and plant a little spring cheer.....just like you did in kindergarten.

So grand! I bet you could plant them right in the shell if you wanted to later, right?

Suzanne of Pieced Pastimes said...

These are so sweet. I love this idea. Thanks for sharing.

Katie @ OhhBaby said...

what a cute idea! Did you paint any glue or anything inside to reinforce the eggs? I have done this with ornaments for christmas. i love this!

Janna Renee said...

Those are too cute! i'll have to remember them from last year!

Gail said...

I didn't think to reinforce them but it sounds like a good idea. White glue and tissue paper applied on the inside would add to the strength considerably. Great thought.

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:
