- At least 3 egg cartons - I used the largest size egg cartons with deep, rounded egg cups
- Good quality glue - I used carpenter’s glue
- A pretty ribbon - optional
- A pair of scissors
- STEP 1: Gather your supplies.
- STEP 2: Using your scissors, cut off the unneeded parts of the egg cartons like the flap and the top. Throw these in the recycling bin or store them for future projects.
- STEP 3: Again with the aid of your scissors, break the egg carton apart into individual egg cups. For my small wreath, I needed 25 egg cups which meant I needed 2+ egg cartons.
- STEP 4: Using only your fingers, gently tear away the cut edges of each egg cup, removing as little as you can so each cup remains as large as possible. You want your egg cups to be left with those soft torn edges.
- STEP 5: Once your cups are torn, it’s time to stack and glue them. One cup at a time, put a generous amount of glue onto its inner surface. Stack the next cup, and add glue to its inner surface. Repeat until you have a stack of several cups. Begin to round the stack as you glue on more cups.
- STEP 6: Continue in this fashion, stacking, glueing and rounding, until you have enough egg carton cups to complete your wreath.
- STEP 7: It’s time now to bring the beginning and end of the rounded stack together. Add some glue to the last cup and join them. I took a little time adjusting the egg cups to get an even look all the way around. Furthermore, I spent a few minutes pushing on the entire outer surface of the wreath to tighten the whole together.
- STEP 8: Finally, find a cozy spot for it to rest as I did, or add a ribbon and decorate a wall as shown below.
