Egg Carton Flower Pins

I love seeing kids' homemade gifts.  Don't you?  There's something beautiful about receiving a gift made by tiny hands.  Today several kid-craft loving bloggers and I took on an egg carton craft challenge.  We came up with different ways to craft with  egg cartons.  Since Mother's day is coming up next month, I thought it would be great to make some egg carton flower pins!  Like our styrofoam mosaic tile picture frames, this craft turns "junk" into lovely gifted treasures.

1.  First, I cut out some flower shapes from cereal box cardboard.  I also cut out the cups from egg cartons.

2.  Then we painted them with tempera paint.

3.  Then, we used plain white glue and glued the egg carton cups onto the flowers.  We also glued on
pom poms.  I also added some details with Sharpie Markers.

4.  Once everything dried, I taped a pin right to the back of the flower.

And that's it!  This super easy craft would make a great gift to give mom for Mother's day!
