One of the crafts we can do to recycle cartons of eggs is the flowers, and when you finish them it is hard to believe that they are made from that material. I have long been thinking what to do with egg carton and I have found a very nice utility, a delicate egg carton flowers to decorate what we will learn to do today. / p>
Once the little flowers are ready they have a very beautiful texture and are perfect for making home decorations. I have dyed them violet but can be made pink, red, yellow or the color you create will combine better in the place of the house you want to decorate.
Let's see the step-by-step to make the egg carton roses .
- Egg carton
- Violet aniline (or water-based paints)
- Green watercolor (for leaflets)
Step by step:
Start by cutting with the cutter a strip of egg carton
And then cut it off by cutting out the parts where each egg is placed.
Take a piece of cardboard and apply it with your hand.
a form of heart.
This way you have the base of the flower ready.
Do the same with another piece of cardboard and cut the bottom.p> Then cut one side so that it is open, like this:
Take the piece of cardboard, make a spiral.
Put some glue on the bottom and place it inside of the base of the flower.

The next step is to cut 4 petal and place them around the shape of the spiral that you glued inside the base. Do not forget to put glue on each one before putting them in place.
To give color to the flower you can paint it, but I have chosen to prepare aniline in a container and immerse it in it. In this way, you can make many flowers and color them in a second and, in addition, you can give several shades of color to the flowers. How is it done? First submerge some florets, put them to dry, add water to the aniline and paint the others.
With this procedure you will have violet roses and others in a lighter shade.
Take them out of the container and put them to dry. I recommend you wear gloves, you see that the aniline stains the fingers ...
A few hours in the sun and the flowers are dry, now you can stick the leaves.
To do the leaves cut out the shapes of the egg carton and paint them with some water-based paint, such as watercolor. If you paint the cardboard in green, let it dry and give it a touch of yellow, the leaves will have a nice gradient.
Just subtract the leaves, and the egg carton flowers are already finished and ready to make a recycled decoration ... and very romantic.
I hope you have enjoyed these little flowers that we have made. If you do, do not forget to tell us how they have been and what uses you have given them in the decoration of your home.
Until next time!
