Family DIY Fun: Eggcellent Bouquets

Besides yolks, there is another by-product of the Easter egg dying process that usually gets tossed to compost — the egg crate.

Instead of throwing it away, use it to craft up something floral with your lil ones. They will enjoy making something out of nothing and you'll get a nifty centerpiece out of it. To see how to make the eggcellent masterpiece,

.

Items you will need:

  • Egg crate
  • Scissors (with fun edges if you want)
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Green and other colored pipe cleaners
  • Crinkled paper or cellophane grass
  • Vase

Now you are ready to begin making your eggtastic bouquet!

  1. Cut the egg cartons into single cups.
  2. Paint the cup and let it dry.
  3. Poke a tiny hole in the bottom of the cup.
  4. Pull the green pipe cleaner through the bottom of the cup and make a small loop to keep it in place.
  5. Use another color pipe cleaner and wrap it around the green to create a pretty eye-popping center.
  6. Fill your vase with the crinkled paper or cellophane grass and place the flowers in the middle.

Voila! Enjoy the poppy inspired flower arrangements!
