For Easter decor, why not make egg planters?
After Easter, the plants — eggs and all — can be planted in soil. 
How-to:

— Hold an extra-large or jumbo egg on its side. Tap the pointed end firmly with a table knife to just break through the shell; turn it slightly and tap again to remove the “cap.” [Reserve the contents to cook with] and rinse the shell.
— Create a drainage hole by carefully pushing the point of a small knife through the bottom of the shell.
— Gently remove about half the soil from around the roots of a small plant. Ease the roots and remaining soil into the shell; add a small amount of soil to cover the roots.
