A Bluegrass Easter Basket

Over the weekend I came across a delightful, earthy & organic tutorial for DIY Eggshell Planters.

As soon as we finished breakfast (we had eggs) I bid farewell to my family and headed out to the garden with my ear buds & eggshells to share my version of this lovely tutorial with you!

I started by gathering my supplies.
A little garden soil and moss and new little sprigs of this & that to fill each egg shell and create a natural Easter Egg Garden.

I also gathered blossoms.

Both pink and white for just a little color.

The delicate blossoms were a bit to large for the individual shells so instead the varieties of moss became my focus.

I think it beautifully compliments my grandmothers Dresden,

and allows the eggs to nestle together nicely.

So a Kentucky Bluegrass Easter Basket it is.

My helper is waiting for the Kentucky Bluegrass Easter Bunny!

I hope you’re enjoying all the blessings of this season.

What a wonderful Easter arrangement - just lovely! Also, loved your previous "blue" post. It's one of my favorite colors, too, and not just because I'm a UK grad. The games last week were amazing - so excited that our Cats won it all.
Happy Easter to you and yours!
