Egg Carton Spring Wreath
We have made these sweet egg carton flowers since my daughter was very young. They always come out so pretty and colorful we thought making a wreath full of them this year to celebrate spring would be perfect.
How We Did It
I first cut a ring (about 12" in diameter) from a small piece of cardboard to be our base for the wreath. While I did this Emma tore apart all the egg cups. They come apart very easily.
Next, Emma made cuts in each egg cup to create petals. She really enjoys working with egg cartons. I think it's because the soft material allows her to easily cut and tear without any assistance from me.
Each flower came out different and unique.
We used watercolors to paint all the flowers. Emma thought next time she would like to add some glitter to make some extra special flowers. I think that's a great idea!
We used tacky glue to attach each flower to our cardboard ring. I like using tacky glue for projects like this to keep down the frustration with the kids. Tacky glue holds much faster and stronger than school glue.
I added a little ribbon that Emma picked out to hang our beautiful spring wreath. This was a really fun project to make together.
