Easter eggshells don't need always be filled with chocolate or other goodies.  You can transform Easter eggshells into votives for your table or as an Easter hostess gift. It's so easy to make that you can involve your children in this project.  Here's how to make Easter eggshell votives:



  • Egg shells as many as you would like
  • Egg cups to use as the base
  • Food coloring
  • Egg carton
  • Warm and hot wax or tealight candles


  1. Make a hole in the top of each egg with a pin; enlarge the holes, and pour out the yolks;
  2. Clean shells;
  3. Then dye them with food coloring (follow package directions).
  4. Nestle shells in a carton.
  5. Cut wire-core wicks to 4 inches long, flatten one end, and fasten in shell with a bit of warm wax.
  6. Using a funnel, fill shells with hot wax (tinted with dye pellets). Let the wax cool. Trim the wicks, and light.

An alternative is to use tealight candles instead of using pure wax.  You would need to make the egg holes large enough so that you can insert the tealight candles.

Get crafty for Easter!

About The Author

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of ModaPreviewInternational.com and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
