Before Easter I got seriously in the mood for Easter decorations, and well, this is one of the few that I didn't quite get round to making happen in time for Easter! Who knew cress took like a week to grow! Utterly hopeless! Anyway, here we go: how you grow cress in egg shells, and at the end you can turn it into decorations, place settings, or just eat the cress!
For this DIY all you'll need is the following:
- Cress Seeds (bought mine in Wilko)
- Eggs (specifically just the shells!)
- Kitchen roll
It's super easy; crack the eggs and empty the yolk and white out, (if you're clever you can use the egg for something else), then cut a small square of kitchen roll, and place it in the egg shell and wet it. Then pour in some cress seeds so the square is covered and leave for a week, making sure to water it every day.
I thought they looked cool in a egg cup!
Or with a name place added!
Special shout out to Catherine for the title and listening to my 'cress chat'!
