Thrifty Thursdays ~ Eggshell or Egg Carton Tulips
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).
