Egg House by Ninina-nini Egg House by Ninina-nini
Made for #ArtisanCraft's Monthly Challenge.

I wanted to make something else but then I got this idea and.... :D

All recycled again (except for colors and glue of course) - newspapers and egg box.

If you'd like to make some for yourself I made the tutorial:

I loved your idea and -some month after- finally made my own egg house. I'd like to make the whole village, but one alone took me far tooo long. If you wanna check it [link]
And thanks for this beautiful idea

I don't get it. Do you put them in the refrigerator? If not, are the eggs empty? If not, then what purpose do these houses hold?

Have you never seen an egg cup? You eat the eggs!

Eggs cups don't fall apart when they get wet.

Why would your egg cup be getting wet in the first place?

Nevermind. I'm not going to hold your hand through this conversation.

Honestly I don't see why there's even a problem with these egg house things. It's a cute little way to recycle some old egg boxes, and I have no idea what you're doing with your egg cups if you're getting them so wet that you'd damage something like this. There's no 'hand-holding' here, you're just trying to find problems where there are none?

hehe :) these can be used at Easter, when we have loads of beautiful, cooked and painted eggs around so you can display them in these houses. Or, you can use one as an egg-holder and eat your soft cooked egg from it.

They're nice to look at. I don't suppose it really has to have a purpose other than that.

I could understand the aesthetic purpose if it didn't hold a perishable food item.

I would think that the aesthetic purpose stands regardless of the item that it holds. I think that the fact that it's shaped to carry an egg improves the cute style of the piece.

The egg confuses me. If it's an egg with yolk, how long is it supposed to stay inside the house? You can't leave it outside of a refrigerator for too long, or it'll rot. And if you put it inside the refigerator, the aesthetic purpose is minimized.

You may be over-thinking this.

Or maybe you're underthinking it.
