Make Mini-Planters Out of Plastic Easter Eggs

By Colleen McTiernan

The Easter Bunny will be leaving lots of eggs around the house soon! Our Easter egg craft will allow you to reuse and recycle them into adorable mini-planters for your kitchen and for spring time gifts. Round up those kids and get out your green thumb for these Mini-Planters made out of plastic Easter eggs!


These mini planters are perfect for small succulents and air plants.

You’ll need:

  • Plastic eggs
  • Spray paint (optional)
  • Painter’s tape
  • Superglue
  • Air plants, succulents, clover or any other plants that will do well in a small space

Separate the tops and the bottoms of the plastic eggs and cover the inside surface of the bottom half of the egg with painter’s tape. Spray paint the eggs in whatever color spray paint you choose (use white for an elegant look), or leave the eggs as is if you like their colors. Depending on the original color of the egg, you may need several coats of spray paint.

Once the eggs are dry, remove the painter’s tape from the inside. Glue two of the painted bottom halves together on the rounded side so that there is an opening on both the bottom and the top. Then simply plant your succulent or air plant in the top half of your mini-planter, top with some small white rocks or gravel and enjoy!
