Eggheads

 

I recently made these eggheads for a spring craft demo
and I thought I would share them here as well. They
are super easy to make. All you need to make them
are empty eggshells, a little potting soil, some
spring wheat seeds (health food stores have these),
and a sunny window sill. Rinse eggshells well in
warm, soapy water, let dry. Decorate as desired.
I used a fine point Sharpie marker. Then fill
eggshells almost to the top with potting soil.
Sprinkle generously with the wheat seed . Gently
water until moist. Put in sunny spot and keep moist.
Your eggs will have a head of hair in about
10-14 days.

 

If you wish you can make little egg carton stands
and use these as placecards for Easter brunch or???
This egghead has a ponytail but you can "style" it
however you wish, mohawk, buzz, etc..

"Borrowed" Wisteria

 


How appropriate that the wisteria was in full bloom on
the first day of spring. Alas, I have no wisteria in my
own yard, so I have to drive around town and enjoy it's
blooms from afar. I have always been curious as to
to whether wisteria could be cut and used in
a floral arrangement. My gas station has a
beautiful ginormous wisteria growing up a tower
in the front of the station, but yesterday I spied
wisteria creeping along the ground by the back
entrance.Time to satisfy my curiosity! Clippers in
hand, I "borrowed" a few sprigs and put them in a
watering can to start my experiment. So far I have
noticed that they are very fragile, but seem to be
holding up well. They would be really sweet used for a
spring tea party, but right now they will be a little
spring by my front door.
