Here Comes The Bride…

April 14, 2011 |  by  |  Blog, DIY, Home & Decor



I have been growing beans and radish, but not in a flower pot, no, I used eggshells;-)

I thought they looked kind of boring, I did not just wanted to sit them in an egg carton and take pictures, so I made little people out of them;-)

This project made into the 10 Best at The CSI project, yippiehhh! And thanks Oh!Crafts for the feature!


The bride has a doily dress and a doily veil. Her lips are made out of felt. She has a little bow glued on the side.

The groom’s tuxedo is made of black carton, as well as his mustache. The hat is glued to a tooth pic.

The garland is made of little styrofoam eggs and vintage paper straws.


It takes about 1 week for the beans to grow to that size.

  1. Cracking up, this is adorable. You are just stinkin’ clever.

    Hope you are having a great week,

  2. Holy smokes! Cutest thing ever! I’m cracking eggs today! I love this! I think I will do my little family instead of a bride and groom! I will share my photos when I’m done. Where did you get the egg holder things?

  3. So very cute! Will you transplant into a pot later, or are these just for decoration?

  4. ha, I love it!! =) Great idea! I totally just did mine to be Easter decor and have since discovered seedlings THRIVE in eggshells compared to the biodegradable planter trays I also bought and used. My seedlings grew 4x faster in the eggshells, no lie, so I’ll totally be using eggshells again -cheaper, too! =)

    I may have try decorating my egg cups though…might make our Saturday morning breakfasts that much more interesting!

  5. This is such a creative idea! I love it!

  6. Ohhh ist das niedlich! Total schön und die Bilder sind ja wirklich toll belichtet. Tolle Farben!
