Instructions:

  1. Cut egg carton apart, keeping (and separating) the bottom circles.
  2. Cut tissue paper into squares.
  3. Because pipe cleaners are part metal, they have a built-in needle. Push pipe cleaner through base of "flower" cup.
  4. Push the decorative paper onto the pipe cleaner also.
  5. 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.
  6. Adjust cup if desired.
  7. 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.
