Craft Time: Egg Carton Tulips


GG arrived last week. We wanted to make her arrival special. We made some welcome banners, drew some special pictures and made a “vase of flowers” to greet her when we picked her up at the airport.

Egg Carton Tulips

Cut out the egg holders into 12 little cups. Then cut “V”’s out of each cup to make a tulip head. We used Elmer’s squeeze and brush (a birthday gift from her friend) and it worked out awesome. You could also use markers, crayons or anything really. Then we (mommy) poked a small hole in the bottom and put in a pipe cleaner stem. By making a little twisty bump in the end of the pipe cleaner then it will stay. I had a couple jam jars and used tissue paper wrapped in the bottom to hold them in place.


Chloe was really happy with how they turned out. We made a jar for gram as well as for GG. We have a few more people to make some for. What a perfect spring time craft!!


  1. oh my goodness! how cute are those?!?

  2. I love it! Especially putting the flowers in a jam jar with tissue paper. That is a fun craft.

    • I was at my friend’s house the other day. Her daughter has Down’s Syndrome and is one of the most creative little girls I know. She had made something similar to this and I “stole” the idea. 🙂
      Thanks everyone for the kind comments. We’re both pretty proud of our creations!

  3. What fun! And very cute.

  4. I love how creative you guys are. This is amazing! I think I may steal your idea and use this for mothers day for my girls to make my mom. I love it!!!

  5. Sorry I’m stopping by so late — I’m just getting caught up on my week 😛 These turned out soooo cute — they would be great for Easter too! So glad you joined in with Magic Marker Monday this past week — hope to see more from your talented kiddos very soon!
