Eggs are one of the most common breakfast foods around the world. You can fry them, make scrambled eggs, or whip up an omelette.
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!
There are many ways to reuse your old egg cartons, but we focus on the projects that are simple yet clever. Many of the ideas we’ve tried let you use egg cartons instead of buying something for the same purpose.
Egg cartons are a fabulous craft resource, after all. You can cut them up for bits or soak them and then reshape them into just about anything. This project only needs some scissors, paint, imagination and, of course, egg cartons…
Click on any image to start lightbox display. Use your Esc key to close the lightbox.
You’ll need materials:
- Egg Cartons
- Glue/Hot Glue
And these tools:
Prepare all the materials and draw a petal form into the egg tray
Use the bottom of a cradle for the base of your flower, cut out the petals you drew and add some paste.
Stick your petals to the prepared base.
Use another full egg cradle as the middle of the flower.
Cut out some stamens…
And look… you’re a talented florist :)
Next, you’ll need your paints and brushes. Note that acrylic paints will give the best result.
This is a great craft project for a rainy day as it can keep the children occupied for hours!
Thanks to Rosi Jo for this great project!
