Matt and I have been eating quite a few eggs lately, and since we buy the free range brown eggs that usually come in the pretty paper pulp egg cartons, I had quite a few of those stacking up! I have a hard time getting rid of the paper pulp egg cartons (even if that means returning them to the person I bought the eggs from at the farmers market) because their texture is so nice, and I’m convinced that there are a thousand pretty things that can be made with them (although I’ve only found one so far–flowers!) So before we became overrun with paper egg cartons, I decided to put five of them to use and make a spring wreath for my door.
I know what you’re thinking. Spring already, Kristi?! Yep, spring. Our weather around here has been so mild that I’ve felt silly with a snowball wreath on my door, even though it’s still officially winter. So I decided to go ahead and make a spring wreath. Here’s what I came up with…
See what I mean about the texture of the paper? I want to find more ways to use it, but because the flat areas on egg cartons are so limited, I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas. But I suppose there are plenty of things you can do with paper pulp egg carton flowers, right? So far I’ve made a pretty little pendant light and this wreath. Hmmm…what else needs flowers?
I decided to do something a little different with this project. Instead of doing a step-by-step post with lots of pictures like I usually do, I decided to do a video tutorial! I hope you enjoy!
