Today, I thought it would be fun to give you instructions on how to make a string of flower lights out of empty egg cartons. This project is pretty simple, but it can be time consuming. It takes me about 2-3 hours to finish a string of 20 lights. 

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

For this project you will need the following:
Egg Cartons (Cardboard or Styrofoam)
Acrylic Craft Paint
Sharp Utility Knife
Foam Paintbrush
Hot Glue Gun
String of Christmas Lights
Cutting Mat
i hope this would work. I'll be presenting a product out from recycle materials. and this catch my attention.
I work in a restaurant that does a killer a breakfast so we go through a lot of eggs making the cartons readily available. These were super easy and they look awesome!! I did not hot glue the flowers on, they seem like they will hold but I may choose to do so down the line. I love these and recommend them to all.
I ended up cutting a little deeper down the sides than you did on my styrofoam flowers, but that was okay because they look like dogwood blossoms and now I don't have to paint them if I don't want to. =) Thanks for this idea!
i actually made this for a school project. I had so much making these and they look GORGEOUS at night!
These are truly delightful! Thank you for sharing.
Very nicely made!
ohh wow how cute. What an awesome way to recycle
Gorgeous egg carton flower lights!
