Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Cut 4 cups from the egg carton. Cut the sides of each cup in 3 or 4 places, to split the cup open, like a flower with petals. Trim around the edges of each petal to clean them up a bit.
Punch a hole in the middle of each flower.
Paint the outside of the flowers different bright, spring colors. You can paint the inside yellow, like the middle of a flower.
Cut the straws into 2” pieces.
Thread the straws and egg carton flowers on the Braiding Cord.
Tie the necklace closed, and you are ready to celebrate spring!
