Egg Cups + Wheat Grass = Easy Spring Decor

I have been picking up these adorable vintage egg cups  throughout the year at yard sales and thrift stores and now have a collection in varying sizes.

 I couldn’t envision ever using  them for their intended purpose of holding a soft-boiled egg but I could  envision using  them for decorative purposes, especially for Spring.  I am drawn to the very plain ones and really like how they look when grouped.

Recently, I planted them with my go to “fresh flowers” … wheat grass.  Wheat grass is so easy and fast to grow (about 1 week)  and I love how it brings a pop of Spring color into my home.

For my Easter table, I set a couple on some wood rounds and covered them with a glass globe.  This gave them a bigger presence and also helped to deter our cats from jumping up on the table and chewing on the grass (cats love wheat grass).

I also weaved a few egg cups into my mantle display to refresh it for Spring and continue the theme.  It’s nice to see an element repeated.

Here’s a few other cute ideas for using egg cups that I found on the internet:

Happy Spring!
