Introduction: Egg Carton Paint Palette W/ Brush Holders
Create an easy to make egg carton paint palette with holes to hold your paintbrushes.
Aluminum foil (optional)
Step 1: Flip and Punch
Open the egg carton and flip it upside-down. Find the middle spot between the egg holders. Take your screwdriver and punch a hole in that area.
Step 2: Make More Holes
Continue punching holes in the same areas if you wish to have more brush holders.
Step 3: Add Aluminum Foil (Optional)
This next part is optional. You can add aluminum foil in the holders if you want a quick way of disposing the paint when you are done. All you have to do is cut a small square piece of aluminum foil and evenly apply it to the egg holder. It doesn't have to look fancy. It just has to get the job done :D
Step 4: Add Paint
Add your paint. The best thing about using an egg carton as a paint palette is that the egg holders can hold more paint than a regular paint palette.
Step 5: Add Coins to Balance
If your egg carton palette is a bit wobbly, just add coins or something heavy on the corner that is lifting up.
Step 6: Paint Away!
Congratulations! You just made your very first egg carton paint palette. Just add your brushes and paint away! :D
