Decorate with Beautiful Flowers and Fairy Lights Made by Egg Cartons

So, it’s spring time, Easter is around the corner, and we have already bought dozens of eggs   to dye. Egg cartons are ideal for paper constructions that exploit both the texture and the particular shape – dents of the cups. This is one of the most  enjoying paper constructions you have ever tried, which also ends with a very special and impressive result!!
Cut egg cartons with cutter or scissors into small or larger pieces of these paper little cases and stick with glue. This way you will make paper flowers in many different designs which you can then paint with any kind of paint you like. Add several decorative elements such as buttons, beads cloth etc..

In the center of the flower using a needle or glue, you can add beads, buttons or any other element. This will give the whole structure an even more convincing look.

By getting your fingers wet and then “work” this kind of cardboard, you will find out how easily the paper  edges will “melt” slightly, will get thin and will have a different “frayed” appearance and texture.  When it gets dried you’ll see that is  well-stabilized in any shape will have given with your hands!!

For complex designs, like flexible stalks just dress thin wire will with ribbon, paper or cloth and stick with craft glue or a spill, straw etc. ., also dressed in the same way.

Use them as artificial flowers into a vase….

A very beautiful tutorial is the fairy lights from paper flowers like the following. You will only need to drill every flower in its center, where you will attach a lamp of a single line of led lights. Start by doing some tests, just to see in practice which shape of  flower you like most  and then  make you own flowers in exactly the same way.
