Thrifty Thursdays ~ Eggshell or Egg Carton Tulips

Supplies needed:
  • Eggshells (or foam egg cartons sections)
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Tempera paint and markers
  • Hot glue or white glue
  • Clean eggshell halves and dry them gently. Or, for an easier craft with more durable flowers, use foam egg carton sections. Cut the cartons sections to look like a tulip.
  • 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.
  • Twirl one end of a green pipe cleaner into a spiral shape (this will be glued onto the base of the tulip).
  • Glue the spiral to the tulip (if using white glue, let it set for a few hours).
  • Enjoy!
