How To Make This Egg Carton Flower Wreath Craft
Start by cutting the egg carton into individual pieces. Cut a slit at each corner and fold back the sides. This will create the “flower petals”.
Paint each flower your choice of color and set aside to dry.
Cut the middle out of the paper plate. If you had to cut the edge of the paper plate in order to cut out the middle, 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!

Make sure you use cardboard egg cartons. Foam won’t work as well.
Don’t like the middle of the carton? Use a hot glue gun and put pom poms in the flower centers. You could also use green construction paper to cut out leaf shapes to go around the egg cups.
