Egg Carton Spring Craft for Kids

These Easter egg potted flowers can be given as gifts during Easter. Or you can just make them as a fun spring craft for kids.  Display them on your tabletop on your office desk.  

We will be making this cute miniature potted flowers spring craft that you can make from leftover Easter eggs and items you already have around the house. You can make more flowers using more plastic eggs and by not cutting the egg carton down as much.   Let’s begin!

Materials

  • 1 block of styrofoam (upcycle foam from packages you’ve received in the mail or fragile items you’ve recently purchased that were pack in styrofoam. Alternatively, you can use floral foam if you happen to have it.)
  • 2 plastic eggs
  • 1 egg carton
  • 2 pairs of googly eyes
  • acrylic paint
  • Sharpie or black permanent marker
  • cutter or X-acto knife
  • scissors
  • pipe cleaners of different colors
  • hot glue
  • paintbrush

Trim the egg carton to the size you want depending on how many flowers you want to make. Paint the egg carton as desired

Mark the Styrofoam using half of the plastic egg.

Cut the Styrofoam based on the egg mark.

Using the pointed part of the eggs, glue the Styrofoam inside.  Disregard the bottom part of the eggs.

Hot glue a pair of eyes on the topmost part, near the edge of the plastic egg.

Draw smiling lips just below the eyes of the egg.

Hot glue the plastic eggs on the wells of the egg carton.  This will permanently fix the eggs on the carton, thus, making a little holder for them.

Make random shapes of flowers from the red, pink, yellow and purple pipe cleaners. 

You can use the tip of the paintbrush if you want to form perfect circles from it.

Insert the stem in the middle of the flower.  You can use green or brown pipe cleaners for this.

Make small leaves and twist it in the stem of the flower.  You get to decide how many leaves per flower will be made. 

Insert the flower plants on the styrofoam.  Arrange them properly and make sure that every flower has its own placement on each plastic egg.

Tada!  You now have an adorable Easter egg potted flowers ready for display!

Hope you like it!  Enjoy!
