Egg Carton Flowers And Egg Carton 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!

  2. These are so gorgeous! I think the first set is my favorite because they just trail so gently. Too bad most of the egg trays nowadays are foam or plastic!

  3. So cool! People's craftiness amazes me sometimes. I love recycling/upcycling too. I like the First one best but there are some others I like a lot too!
