Instructions for the project: The first step is to make sure that you save all the shells you peel off your eggs!

Using a cotton swab or an old paint brush and working in small sections liberally spread glue onto your design. Carefully stick the eggshell pieces, colored side up, onto the glue. Continue with this process until your design is completely filled in with egg shells. Set the mosaic aside to dry completely.
Instructions for the project: Take the egg shells (either peeled off of your colored Easter eggs or white ones) and break them into small enough pieces that they lay flat. Liberally apply the glue where you want the eggshells attached and begin laying on the eggshells. This works best if you work on one section at a time. After you finish you can add additional decoration if you want (glitter, jewels etc) and cover the egg shells with a layer of varnish to help them stick. Let the dish dry completely.
