Egg Carton Flowers
Here's are some cute flowers that kids can make for their mothers and grandmothers.
- pipe cleaners
- Styrofoam egg carton
- miscellaneous plastic beads
- tissue paper (optional)
- Cut egg carton apart, keeping (and separating) the bottom circles.
- Cut tissue paper into squares.
- Because pipe cleaners are part metal, they have a built-in needle. Push pipe cleaner through base of "flower" cup.
- Push the decorative paper onto the pipe cleaner also.
- To finish: place one or a few beads on tip, beads should fit snug. If you only have pony beads, give it extra pipe cleaner, fold over and twist.
- Adjust cup if desired.
- Place in a nice vase and give to someone special, mom perhaps? This is an easy craft, and helps to re-use the unrecyclable Styrofoam egg cartons.
