Hi! It’s me, Theresa from Capri + 3, popping in on the last day of the 31 Days of Love. I am so excited to be part of this amazing series from Red Ted Art. Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday and we love to do heart themed crafts. I save all of our egg cartons because they come in handy for crafts and sorting. This time, we did a group project where all four of our three year-old children took turns painting and decorating the same egg carton wreath.
You Will Need:
- Recycled cardboard egg carton
- Red (or color of your choice) non-toxic paint such as tempera
- Paint brush and plate or container for paint
- Wired Ribbon (We used a 2 inch width.)
Cut the lid off of the carton and then cut the part that holds the eggs in half lengthwise so that you have two long strips and trim the rough edges.You can either shape it into a heart and staple it (then paint it) or paint it first. Since we have four little ones and it was likely to get torn, I opted to have them paint the two sections before I shaped it (but I have photos of the unpainted heart in case you’d like to go that route).
