• Egg Carton Flower Garland

    egg carton craft easter We go through a couple extra dozen eggs each Easter so I thought it would be fun to make a craft out of the extra egg cartons instead of just tossing them into the recycling bag. This easy flower garland would be so pretty to hang for an Easter brunch to welcome spring.

    Steps:

    1. Start cutting out the individual egg cups. When you do, make sure to shape them into pedals of all shapes and sizes. Some will look better than others. You can always take the scissors to them to make the pedals deeper.

    2. Spray paint them pink!

    3. Cut a small hole in the back with scissors and lace the string through, adding a knot between each one to keep them in place.

      Love this! Thanks for sharing!

    3. […] We eat a lot of eggs around our house, so I always have a big stack of egg cartons tucked away. Of you're looking to use up a pile of them yourself, this springy garland from Liz at Say Yes to Hoboken might be just the thing you are seeking! It is also a great project to do with kids, who will love painting and stringing the flowers. I'll be filing this away in my "things to do when I am babysitting" list!
