Egg Carton Cross
Save your cartons after coloring your eggs and show the kids how to make a pretty Egg Carton Cross. Egg carton crafts are great for teaching children about recycling and make a wonderful craft material.
Trivia: The egg carton was invented in 1911 by newspaper editor Joseph Coyle of Smithers, British Columbia, to solve a dispute between a local farmer and hotel owner in Aldermere in British Columbia, over the farmer’s eggs often being delivered broken.
Cut egg carton into a section of six cups and a section of five cups. Glue the middle cup of the five-section piece inside the second cut of the other piece to form a cross shape.
Wrap the cross with lace or fabric strips. Decorate with ribbon and silk flowers.
