Almost everyone has egg cartons at home. And almost everyone has the reflex to throw them in the recycling bin. What else to do with these light and grayish cartons?
DIY crafts! Ornaments for the tree, decorations for the table or the buffet, for example. We can use them all year long, but during the holidays we are especially inspired!
So, get some cartons and sit down to let your creativity flow, with or without the kids! They will be happy to have made beautiful gifts for their loved ones themselves.
Here are 11 projects to inspire you:
1. A snowman
This little guy will be delightful on the tree or on a wall!
