By The Little Mulberry Project
Little ones love to paint – painting paper, bubble wrap, leaves, sticks, stones and even (often) themselves. As well as fun, painting is great for developing hand-eye coordination, strengthening fine motor skills, and exploring colour, form and design concepts.
Painting the unique shapes and textures of egg cartons is very entertaining for little ones and offers a multitude of crafting options. Egg carton flowers are a great art project and this little wall hanging craft shows them off beautifully with a little boho chic!
- Egg Cartons
- Twine / Wool / String
- Beads / Bells / Buttons / Loose Parts
- Hanger / Branch / Rattan Ring
- Let little hands brush, dab, swirl and splatter paint on the inside and outside of some egg cartons.
- Once dry, cut out each egg holder section to form flower shapes – rounded petals, long thin petals, pointing petals, etc
- Punch hole in base of each flower with skewer.
- Tie knot at end of twine and begin threading flowers and beads, bells, buttons in various patterns.
- Tie top of twine to your preferred hanger / branch / ring.
- Enjoy your beautiful hanging bouquet on the wall.
- My little one also wanted to make a classic bouquet with her flowers so we glued some to popsicle sticks and added buttons to their centres.
