Shell Covered Easter Eggs

Inspired by the beautiful work from this Etsy shop, create your own DIY shell eggs. You’ll need a Styrofoam egg to be your base, a hot glue gun to apply the shells, a large collection of shells to cover the base (these can be all the same type or a variety of different bivalves), and spray paint to finish the look.
Begin by applying the shells at the top of the egg and layering them down and around to fill in any holes until you have completely covered the shape. Once complete, spray generously with your preferred Easter paint color and you’re all done!
Beach Scene Egg Painting
Instead of creating an egg from the beach, paint an egg with images inspired by the beach! For this craft, you will need paints, brushes, and eggs – that’s it! With a pencil, you can sketch out your designs freehand or trace a shape you like from a printout. This is a great one for little kids to participate in. get them set up with a design and let them paint away!

For more general, sprint-time Easter themes, you can try these shell flowers, from Etsy. To assemble, gather a collection of shells, like coquina or jingles, and sort them from biggest to smallest. Your biggest shells will be the base and with each layer up, the shell should get smaller. Attach them with a hot glue gun and have fun layering your beach petals just the way you’d like. This would like beautiful on your Easter table or displayed in an entryway.
Happy crafting and happy Easter!
