Egg Carton Christmas Tree

Micheline explains how you can create a lovely Christmas tree using egg carton cups and some garland.

  • Age Guideline: 8 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Form the 18 egg carton cups on a piece of cardboard into the shape of a Christmas tree. Use the photo here as a guide for egg carton cup placement. Use a stapler or a needle and heavy thread to attach the egg carton cups to the cardboard. Trim the cardboard flush with the egg carton cups so you can't see it form the front.

Cut a piece of ribbon about 10-inches long. Tie it into a loop and then staple or glue it to the back , top of the Christmas tree.

Wrap the garland around each egg carton cup to decorate your tree. Use craft glue to hold the garland in place. You can also decorate this Christmas tree using other items like stickers, buttons, rhinestones, etc.
