Easter egg terrarium

Remember these Easter egg terrariums? They’re back… this time with air plants! This is a super easy way to decorate for Easter, especially if you want to keep your decor a bit more subtle. This Easter egg terrarium also makes the perfect gift!

Read below for the full tutorial, and be sure to check out more of our Easter craft inspiration below!

You’ll Need:


  1. ¬†Spray the colored Easter egg inside and out. Let it dry for at least 24 hours but ideally more. You don’t want to suffocate your new plats with toxic fumes.
  2. Start by laying moss in the egg. I used two different types of moss–the green stuff and the white stuff as shown in the picture–so it would add variety
  3. Place in your air plants.
Wouldn’t this Easter egg terrarium make the most lovely host gift? I would recommend leaving the top off overnight to give it some air.

What to do with your leftover Easter eggs

Have some leftover Easter eggs that you don’t know what to do with? Why not put them to use for crafting? If you’re planning an Easter brunch or dinner party, spray paint your Easter eggs in different colors to create this table runner. Or use them to create these Easter egg name settings. Repurpose your plastic eggs to create a work of art, like these botanical Easter eggs. Plus, painting Easter eggs is a fun activity to do with friends and family! It’s a win-win.¬†When those Easter egg hunting days are over, reuse your plastic Easter eggs as gifts! Fill them with these Easter printables for the cutest (and easiest!) gifts.
