Egg Shell Tulips and Glass Painted Flower vase

Egg Shell Tulips
Egg Shell Tulips

I just happened to see this tulip flowers with Egg Shells in a TV Show, have done some variations with the materials used.

How to prepare the Tulips:

When Breaking Egg for omelet or scrambled eggs, break the eggs gently as shown in the picture. Clean the Egg shells with Warm Soap water. Dry the egg shells.

Gently Pierce the boarder part of the Egg shell with a needle as shown below

In the Indian TV show, the Crafts person had used midribs of coconut leaves as stems for tulips. I have used Toy Packaging strings as the Stem. Make a knot in one end of the String. Leave the free end of the string inside the broken part of the egg shell as shown in picture.

Color the Egg shell like tulips with Marker pens.

Glass painted Flower Vase

I have used Empty Ginger-Garlic Paste Bottle as the flower vase. Have done a simple glass painting design.
