How to Make an Egg Carton Flower Wreath
This easy Easter wreath is a great projects to do with young children. The wreath is made up of painted cardboard cartons and embellished with pom poms and butterflies. Older kids could use their cutting skills to shape the cartons to look like different types of flowers.
1. Begin by cutting your foam base. Draw a circle with a 16 inch diameter. Inside the circle draw a smaller circle about 2 inches smaller – the board will mostly be covered so this does not need to be too neat. Cut out the ring. Paint green and leave to dry.
3. Cut different-sized leaves out of green card and felt. Put a generous amount of PVA glue all over the foam ring and stick the leaves on in small clusters so they are hanging over the outer and inner edges.
6. Add a length of ribbon to the back of the wreath for hanging.
