Using masking tape, secure each carton to each other, like shown in the picture. Make sure to leave the egg carton with the flap on the outside.

Punch two holes in the flap approximately 4" apart.

Tie a knot on one end of your ribbon, yarn or string big enough so it will not be pulled through the hole. Pull string though hole leaving the knot on the backside. Pull the end of the string through the second hole and tie a knot. Egg Carton Bulletin Board Hanger
