Eggshell Mosaics: E is for Earth & Eggshells

Eggshell Mosaics

I love doing mosaics! The best things about mosaics are they don’t have to be perfect and they can be made into anything!

I wanted to do a Bible based craft project for the letter E, but there are not very many things that work for the letter E.

After looking online for a while I found my options were Eagles (but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; …  Isaiah 40:31) or Earth (“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  Genesis 1:1).

I chose Earth because we have done Eagles before and the craft options are kind of boring. Earth really didn’t have too many options, so I made our own. I had already found lots of crafts using egg shells and I had some old Fimo clay to use up! We made Earth mosaics from eggshells and Fimo.

Supplies for Eggshell Mosaics:

  • Eggshells
  • Food Coloring
  • Vinegar
  • Clay or Fimo or Salt Dough

Step 1: Dye the peeled shells in food dye, 1 cup water, and a tablespoon of vinegar. Make sure and pull them out and dry them before the project.

Step 2: Cut circles out of clay (Find a large glass or round bowl to use as a cookie cutter.

Step 3: Now the fun part push the pieces of shell into the clay.

Even little hands can do this project!

Press it in pretty firmly!

Step 4: Dry your clay according to the directions. Mine needed to be baked.

Step 5: Brush off any extra shell that didn’t stick. Now you have a lovely mosaic Earth.

Step 5: (Optional) This is a wonderful keepsake craft. I flipped ours over and wrote the boys names on them and the date.
