Upcycled Crafts: Egg Carton Flowers
Hello everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day! We’ve come up with yet another way to make flowers out of material that might otherwise go into the landfill – this time it’s egg cartons! Follow along and get some Valentine inspiration.
Egg carton (you need the kind that has a pyramid shaped portion holding up the lid)
Cut out two or three of the pyramid shaped portions of the egg carton that holds up the lid. Cut the edges so that they form the curved edges of a petal. Make each one a little smaller than the the first so that they can be nested together.
If you’d like to color your flower, now is the time! We used crayons in the shade “mauvelous.”
Use glue to attach all three layers to one another, nesting the smaller ones into the larger ones. Here’s the finished product within an origami box frame.
