Ostara Celebration Ideas: Eggshell Candles and Offering Nests


WOW!

That’s a NEAT IDEA!

I like this enough to share through my “network”.

During the Ostara season, I always end up with an abundance of eggshells, so I wanted to try doing something with them besides tossing them in the garden for fertilizer.

This is a great project to do with crafty older children and teens.

You can vary this project any way you want to.  You might chose to leave the shell natural—it can look lovely that way.  Or you chose another method of decorating.  Because this project doesn’t need to be food-safe, you can use all kinds of methods to decorate the shell, so be creative.  Spray adhesive plus glitter, spray paint or natural dying are all nice choices, but I decided on acrylic paint in this grape color that I just love.  I didn’t really want it to be a perfect, solid coat, so I let some of the natural coloring show through.
