My little boy asked if we could make a decoration to hang above his bed...so we made this.
We made it by tearing up old egg cartons (for some reason I can't bring myself to through away egg cartons...) and dropping the bits into dye pots (just food colouring and water). Then we left them to dry in the sun. They really look like little flowers...
Then we made them into garlands using a large needle and strong thread and hung them from a stick...
I got the idea after seeing this post about a window display made from egg cartons at Anthropologie on the Lovely Wren blog.
Have you made anything lovely from egg cartons you'd like to share?
