Egg Carton Blooms


I'm back from my unplanned bloggy break.
Not sure what was up with me, 
just a case of being delightfully busy with my family and maybe a 
tid bit of being unmotivated.

But let's jump right back in shall we?

I have a fun craft to share with you today.

Just after Easter I had a small collection of egg cartons.
Sometimes I become a hoarder and keep bits of trash that I KNOW we can use in a craft.
It comes in quite handy sometimes
(most of the time it just clutters up my craft closet). 

If you're a Pinterest parooser 
(and who isn't???) 
I'm sure you've seen the sweet wreaths made from egg carton flowers.

Using those as our inspiration, we got started on our project:
 First I cut various flowers and leaves from the cartons.
This was a bit awkward for the girls, so I did this part.
 Then we glammed up our egg carton blooms with happy color.

 We then glued them onto a ribbon 
to make a sweet banner for our classroom.

 I love the happy color it adds to our room.
Sometimes my trash hoarding pays off!

Hope you have a bright and beautiful day!
