Eggs Seed Bombs …… the Perfect Gift for Mom or the Avid Gardener this Christmas
…… Egg seed bombs another craft from our Gemperle Farms art studio
We at Gemperle Farms have lots of fun testing our craft ideas. Our egg seed bombs are one of our favorite. I have to admit we are kind of “egg nerds”. We are a bit egg obsessed with educating or can I say EGG-DU-CATING folks on all the different uses of the edible incredible egg. We first introduced this egg seed bomb idea for Easter and now realized that it is the perfect hand made Christmas gift for mom or any avid gardener. It can also be beautifully displayed in a bowl into its ready to be thrown in the garden next spring.
These egg seed bombs are the perfect gift for the accomplished or beginner gardener. Kids and moms will love to throw these beauties and watch the egg shatter all over the garden splashing seeds in random patterns.
Enjoy this short photo essay and learn how to make Gemperle Egg Seed Bombs!
First we blew the insides out of our eggs — so we started with a collection of empty brown and white egg shells. We also dyed some of our cage free egg shells with natural dyes. To learn how to do the natural dyes go to our egg craft page. Another fun way to decorate is was with water colors — the ideas are limitless.
One Two three — your special love one will give a big hard throw in the garden and spill the guts of your egg seed bomb. In a couple weeks they will start to see seedlings. Best of all the shells are supposed to repel snails in order to keep seedlings safe. All will have so much fun throwing these egg bombs.
