Flirty, Floral, Fun~~ 20 DIY Recycled Egg Carton Flower Crafts


I was looking for new egg carton crafts since I have so many egg cartons.  We used to keep the egg cartons for our neighbor down the street who has chickens.  But, even she doesn't need as many egg cartons as we have.  We go through some eggs, man!  Holy Shmoly we eat a lot of eggs.
Although this was going to start out as a kids craft post, it has morphed into more of an adult craft post.  Some of these crafts could probably be done by kids though.  Let's take a look at all of the pretty flowers people have made from egg cartons!  I love all of the different, colorful, bright blooms!

1. I thought this first one was actually for the purple hanging flowers, but it's not.  She just drew her inspiration from the purple hanging flowers.  This post is from 2012.  Alas, my plans to try to find "new" egg  carton crafts has fallen short.  But, the flowers are so pretty I MUST include them! The first image is her inspiration and the second image is her own creation.

3. I guess I should just have Crafts by Amanda on the top of my favorites list, because I seem to be sharing a lot of her stuff lately.  I love this little Cherry Blossom craft.  It's past Cherry Blossom time here, but the craft is still super cute.

4. These next flowers are actually from coupons.com "The Good Stuff"  Didn't even know they had "stuff."  I love this one because :  buttons.  I love buttons.  They're just so stinkin' cute.

5. I like this next one because it's pink, which is kind of one of my favorite colors.  I can't really use pink anywhere because I'm not the only one who lives in this house.  We could make it for my daughter's room, though.  She. Would. Love. It!  I also like it because :  Boho.  There ya' go!

6. This next one, is again, purple.  They are just so pretty with the lights and the lights make me say whaaaaaaaaaaat???  I actually think I'd be kind of nervous in case the lights get hot.  But I guess most Christmas trees don't burn down, right?  At any rate, they are super cute and I love the idea.

8. Here's a tutorial on how to make egg carton roses.  I've seen several pretty egg carton roses on Pinterest, but they lead to nowhere.  They're just images.  So, I finally found a tutorial for them!
