Roses out of Egg Cartons

Roses outta egg cartons

I know you’ve egg cartons by the dozen that have promptly seen garbage bins before you could say eggxactly. There is hope, and a beautiful one.

Did you know that they can look like this?

Roses out of Egg Cartons DIY

I have a thing for roses!


Me too. Until I made them.
It’s easy and you probably have everything you need around the home.

Things you need:
Egg cartons
Glue (Fevicol or Fevibond)
Acrylic paint or Spray paint or Glitter – up to you!

How to cut out the roses:
Watch this simple video. It’s the easiest I found.

What can you create:
A gift box (like I did)
Frame a mirror with roses
Cover your wires
Make a 3D art piece
Make faux roses to display

Good to know:
This is an easy project but it takes time. The 8 roses I created and then painted with acrylic took me 3 hours. You can pro’lly use spray paint to save time. I recommend making these when binge-watching movies maybe 🙂

Before you leave:
I can’t wait to see what you make with your egg cartons. If you post it somewhere, tag it with #DIYOutsideIn so I can see it too. I can even post it here for everyone’s benefit (and if you’d like that).
