Howdy craftiers! Sorry for the long absence. It’s been some time now since our last hand print art, hasn’t it? Let’s make this cute handprint owl art today 🙂

Craft Goes Green day 🙂 This time we are converting egg cartons into delicious and juicy grapes 😀


Yummy egg carton grapes 🙂


Cut and paint several egg carton cups

This will be my first time sharing a video of my boy at work 😀 This is a video of him painting 🙂

Once dry, paste them onto a piece of paper.
Cut and paste felt as the leaves.


Frame the grapes if you wish.


The 3D effect makes it a beautiful art piece 😀

Remember the Happy Family Chicken Eggs we just did? Remember the Easter Egg Bunny? All we need to do now is make a basket to keep them nicely together 🙂

Easter Egg Basket. The Happy Chicken Family and their friend, the Easter Bunny 🙂

Cut an empty egg carton. We'll need only four 'nests'.

Trim the sides and paste double-sided tape. Stick a strip of crepe paper all around it.

In case you're wondering how to prepare the crepe paper, just cut a strip and fold. Then trim one end so that it's a little bit rounded.

Use a hole punch and punch a hole each on both sides of the basket. Put a pipe cleaner through it and twist to secure. The Easter Egg Basket is done 🙂

I’m sure we all have egg cartons ‘scattered’ in our house from time to time. Let’s see what we can do with those cartons.

I think we can do a cute penguin out of it…

Decorate the penguin with googly eyes, orange craft foam as the beak, yellow craft foam as the feet and tie a ribbon around it’s neck as a scarf. Give it an ear muff for maximum coolness effect! You may want to glue a magnet at the back of it and it can be a cute fridge magnet!
