Recycle egg cartons into beautiful flowers

Recycling egg cartons is a fun project that mom or kids can do. If the kids are bored during the school holidays, stock pile some egg cartons to keep them busy. There are also plenty of projects in our Kids Craft section. There are some amazing projects below, all using egg cartons to create beautiful flowers that can be used for gifts and cards, to decorate picture frames, or just to have.


Cut one slit into each corner of each cup for a total of 4 slits as shown left. Cut each piece into a petal shape. Repeat with another cup, to create second layer of rose. Repeat with a third cup, but cut petals a little smaller, then roll so petals curve and make a bud shape.



Starting at one corner, hot glue the roses to the frame, bending petals to fill in gaps if needed. Continue until frame is covered.

Egg cartons make beautiful flowers when encased around fairy lights. Spray the flowers with Rust-Oleum 2X in your choice of colour/s and then hang them on the wall, wrap them around a dressing table mirror, or drape them over a curtain rail.
