Spring is in the air, and we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of Spring, and Easter this month. With so many celebrations packed into one month, it’s a great time to get those creative juices flowing and make something that’s representative of this uplifting time. Enter Alison, an art director responsible for so many of our beautiful cards, and our resident crafting expert. Alison put together this super adorable egg carton craft idea, that’s simply perfect for Spring. Follow these three easy steps and let your Springtime mood be your guide!
1. Paint your egg cartons.
You can find these half dozen egg cartons at your local home renovation store, or plenty of craft stores. Use your imagination when it comes to paint colors, and if you’re crafting with kids, let them choose their own colors to make their craft uniquely theirs. These 2oz. acrylic paint bottles are a great choice.
2. Decorate your container with Washi Tape.
You can find a plethora of this kind of tape at any local craft supply store, and this is another opportunity for kids and adults alike to put their own style into the craft. Floral designs are always a great choice for that Spring feel.
3. Add additional flair with flowers or tags.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to accessory options. A good tip is to look at the seasonal options at your local craft store. You should be able to find plenty of Spring options at an affordable price.
These little containers are perfect for filling with surprises for Easter, plus, they would make a perfect teacher gift!
