Egg Carton Flower Wreath
This easy-peasy craft makes the best out of a plain old egg carton. Add some paints, a few gems and hey-presto you have a lovely wreath to give as a gift or hang up at home.
What You Need:
– Empty egg cartons – Acrylic paints – Cardboard – Patterned paper – Pipe cleaners – Gems – Buttons – Ribbon – Strong glue
Using scissors or a craft knife cut out the ‘wells’ of the egg carton, so they form ‘heads’ of the flowers. The pointy bits can be cut out too and cut down to form petals. They might all look a bit rough but when you shape them later and paint them, they’ll look great.
Paint them all the colours of the rainbow!
Use the lid of the egg carton to cut out leaf shapes and little strips to make blades of grass. On the large, flat piece of cardboard draw around a big plate to make a circle. Draw around a smaller plate inside the big circle and cut out the middle so you have a ring.
Paint the leaves, blades of grass and ring. I used a few shades of green to give more interest and texture.
