"Eggshells" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Mini funnel.
Poke a hole in half an eggshell, then pour the liquid through it into a container.
2. Planter.
Punch a tiny hole, add soil, moisten, and plant a seed. Support the egg shell in an egg carton cup.
 
3. Decoration.
Poke a small hole in both ends of an egg; blow out the contents. Let the shell dry, then paint and decorate with scraps of jewelry and rickrack. To hang, glue ribbon or string to one end.
 

4. Fertilizer. Sprinkle crushed shells around garden plants to discourage slugs. Toss any extra eggshells into the compost heap.
 

5. Pot scrubber. When cleaning pots and pans while camping, a good substitute for steel wool is a handful of broken eggshells.
 

6. Mosaic. Paint the inside and out side of eggshells a variety of colors, then crush them in a paper bag. Draw a picture on cloth or paper and spread slightly diluted white glue over it; sprinkle appropriately colored shells over the glue and protect with several coats of acrylic sealer.
 

7. Garden aid. Sprinkle rows of freshly planted seeds with crushed egg- shells to keep birds away and to mark the rows.
