This lovely flower corsage is made almost entirely from recycled materials - egg carton, shredded paper and a cardboard tube!

Start with:

  • Cardboard Egg Carton
  • Shredded Paper
  • Pom Pom
  • Cardstock
  • Cardboard Tube
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush

Create it!

Step 1: Paint several sections of egg carton and allow it to dry.

Step 2: Cut out the circle portion of the painted egg carton and glue some shredded paper to the center.

Step 3: Glue a pom pom to the center of the shredded paper.

Step 4: Cut a portion from the cardboard tube for the corsage wrist band and cut a slit in one end.

Step 5: Glue the egg carton flowers to the wrist band.

Step 6: Cut leaves from cardstock.

Step 7: Glue the leaves to the corsage.

There are so many recycled materials that can be turned into something fun!
