Crapty Fridays- Make a Halloween garland out of an egg carton

Before we talk about today's crapt, let me just begin with this short poem about crapting: 

Crap is destined for the garbage
and therefore it is free.
When I use crap to make my crafts,
a-crapting I will be.

Today's crapting project is a Halloween inspired one.  Our apartment desperately needs Halloween-y decorations.  (We currently only have a pair of Day of the Dead candle holders)  So, I whipped up a super easy Halloween garland out of an egg carton and string.      

Materials:
- egg carton
- string
- craft paint
- paint brushes
- craft knife
- scissors
- newspaper/scrap paper/paper bag
- Sharpie marker


Directions:
1. I cut out all the little egg holders in my egg carton.  (Is there a name for those things?)


2. I painted the little egg holders orange and green.  
This is probably as close as I'll ever get to growing pumpkins



3.   Once my paint dried, I drew faces on my tiny pumpkins.
Doesn't this look like a school photo?  Can you spot the naughty pumpkins in the back row?



4.  I cut two slits on the top of my pumpkins.  Then I strung my pumpkins together.



Right now they're just smiling and dangling away above our table. Seeing their cute faces when I eat cereal in the morning makes me happy.

Happy crapting!

  1. LOL they are so cute! When I saw the picture with the final product, those sugary, pumpkin candies appeared in my vision. Yum! We were actually talking about them candies today at work. A couple teachers had introduced those pumpkin candies to their kids prior to going outside to the playground. The children were a lot more energized than on a normal day, especially for certain specific children that normally keep to themselves, were bouncing around and talking as though they had consumed a bottle of red bull. lol
