Gathering toys to donate and I came across a bunch of Easter eggs that the kids aren't using or playing with. I decided to upcycle the plastic egg into this cute mini planter. This planter fits nicely on my mantle with my other plants!

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • choice for base of planter (I used jar cap)
  • succulent or small plant
  • plastic egg
  • paint + paint brush
  • soil
  • painter's tape


  1. Using the egg top, apply painter's tape around the rim.
  2. Paint the rim with your choice of color. Allow to dry. Remove the tape.
  3. Add a little bit of soil into egg (planter) and select a succulent from your garden to place in the egg.
  4. Secure egg to your choice of base with hot glue. (I finally have use for the jar cap I saved from a broken jar.)
  5. Ready to display your planter in your home!
