Egg Carton Tulip Craft – Spring Flower Kids Craft

I love spring. The beginning of warmer weather and gardening season. Tulips are one of my favorites. No sign of tulips yet, the crocus and daffodils are blooming. Make your own pretty bouquet. Add it to a jar and put a heart and you can have a Mother’s Day Gift. Enjoy this tulip craft.

Step 2

Paint the egg cartons inside and out with paint. I mixed the white with a little red to get 2 colors of pink. Let paint dry.

Step 3

Cut 4 petal for each cup. Cut the edges off. Curve the edges of each petal. Where there is no petal cut a triangle where there is supposed to be 2 petals.

Step 4

Poke 2 holes just big enough for a pipe cleaner. Put the pipe cleaner from underneath of the cup and then down through the other hole. Leaving most of the pipe cleaner as a stem twist the end of the pipe cleaner around itself.

Step 6

Cut the 9 x 12 felt sheet in half vertically. Fold each half in half again and cut. Take the halves and Fold each in thirds and cut a part. Fold each piece in half and cut a triangular point. Glue a leaf to each stem by starting about 2 1/2 in from the bottom of the stem and wrap the leaf from the stem and apply glue. Let dry and arrange in a jar or vase. Enjoy.
