Make This Egg Carton Daffodils

Egg Carton Daffodils

This egg carton daffodils project is a great way to recycle trash.

Eggs are one of the most common breakfast foods around the world. You can fry them, make scrambled eggs, or whip up an omelet.

But once all the eggs are cracked, fried, and scrambled, what do you do with the empty egg cartons?

If you’ve been throwing them away, then you’ve been missing out on a lot of DIY opportunities!
