Egg Carton Flower Lei

After dying all your eggs for Easter, recycle your egg cartons to make a fun springtime necklace for your child as young as preschool age!



Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

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.

Step 3.

Punch a hole in the middle of each flower.

Step 4.

Paint the outside of the flowers different bright, spring colors.  You can paint the inside yellow, like the middle of a flower.

Step 5.

Cut the straws into 2” pieces.

Step 6.

Thread the straws and egg carton flowers on the Braiding Cord.

Step 7.

Tie the necklace closed, and you are ready to celebrate spring!
