Egg Carton Wreath

Save those egg cartons so the kids can make an Egg Carton Wreath that will look pretty long after Easter is over. This craft is good for the kids to make any time of year, all you have to do is change the colors for the season or the holiday.

Trivia: Wreaths are traditionally hung over the front door. Be creative and try hanging them over sconces, mirrors or any place they will add a decorative touch.
