Egg Carton Flower Crafts


Flowers made from recycled paper pulp egg cartons are nothing new - As a matter of fact, I remember them from grade school! (certainly not going to give away my age here, but let's just say that was well over 3o years ago!) 

In any case, egg carton flower crafts are a great way to recycle paper pulp egg cartons. The cartons can easily be cut, shaped, and painted to look like a variety of different flowers. This is a craft that the entire family can do together, and that makes it even better!

As for the flowers, check out the varieties I've gathered here for you. 
Personally, red poppies are my favorite... 
I might have to fashion a garland of those for myself!
Enjoy!
