How to make this egg carton floral wreath
Start by cutting the egg carton into individual pieces. Cut a slit at each corner and fold the sides back. This creates the “petals”.
Note: Don’t like the middle of the box? Use a hot glue gun and insert pom poms into the center of the flower. You can also use green construction paper to cut out leaf shapes to bypass the egg cups.
Paint each flower the color of your choice and set aside to dry.

Cut out the middle of the paper plate. If you had to cut the edge of the paper plate to cut out the center, you can staple it back together.
Glue the painted flowers around the edge of the wreath and tie a piece of ribbon for a bow!
