Are you all starting to think about Easter?! Too soon? Well, Easter is a favorite over here at House of Loo, so I’ve been thinking and scheming for a while now. Dyeing Easter eggs is a treasured family tradition and I thought it’d be fun this year to include the egg cartons as well.
London and I started on these cute egg carton flowers last week on a rainy day and thought you guys might enjoy. After all, Earth Day is right around the corner. Why not feature a project that recycles something you already have in your house.
What you’ll need..
- Cardboard Egg Carton
- Paint of your choice (We used Crayola Washable Kids Paint)
- Paint Brush
- Pipe Cleaners
I went ahead and cut the egg carton into two different shapes while London napped. After waking up and a quick snack she was ready to paint.
Once the egg cartons were dry I used scissors to poke a whole through the middle of the carton. Then, London threaded a pipe cleaner through the hole and I made a little knot at the top end to keep the egg carton from falling off. London actually enjoyed the threading more than the painting. She had fun pairing and matching the different carton pieces.
And that’s it! Enjoy. We are gifting this bouquet to a friend of ours. You could easily arrange them to be a center piece at Easter Dinner or I thought this would be a cute idea for a May Day basket as well.
Have you done any egg carton crafts before? I made a Pinterest board with some cute inspiration that I thought would be fun for toddlers. Go check it out, I’d love to see what you and your littles come up with!
