You can start saving egg cartons to make this inexpensive holiday wreath. If you want your wreath to be larger, you'll need more cartons. This is an example of a wreath made with just 1 carton. Overall, it is an inexpensive project made using materials/supplies you may even already have!
Total Time: 1.5 hours
- egg carton
- acrylic paint + paint brush
- hole puncher
- hot glue gun
- wire cutters
- craft wire
- Cut apart individual egg carton pieces, a total of 12 pieces.
- Trim around the edges until you get a nice flat/smooth surface, about 3/4 - 1".
- Ready to paint the egg carton pieces with your choice of color and allow to dry. *I allowed my egg carton pieces to dry overnight.
- Once dried, using a hole puncher poke a hole and another one again across from it (so you can thread through the craft wire.)
- Using craft wire, thread all your egg cartons through.
- Using cutters, cut wire leaving a little room so you can secure a wire knot.
- To keep the egg cartons in place and not flipping around, dab hot glue in the inside near where the holes are punched.
- Ready to decorate the wreath however you'd like. I made a bow with ribbon I already had on hand.
- I also had a leftover "Merry Christmas" ribbon so I tied a knot in the center of the wreath. I also dabbed a little hot glue from ribbon to egg carton so it'll stay in place and can be read.
- Secure bow onto wreath and ready to display!
