Very Crafty...

Egg Carton Tulip Bouquet

Make a bouquet of delicate eggshell tulips for spring, using foam egg cartons sections and pipe cleaners.

Supplies needed:

Foam egg cartons sections
Green pipe cleaners
Tempera paint and markers
Hot glue or white glue


1) Cut the cartons sections to look like a tulip.

2) Using tempera paint, decorate the shells to look like tulips. Let the paint dry overnight. When the paint is completely dry, add details to the tulips using markers.

3) Twirl one end of a green pipe cleaner into a spiral shape (this will be glued onto the base of the tulip).

4) Glue the spiral to the tulip (if using white glue, let it set for a few hours).
