Egg Box Jewellery

The purpose – where I start – is the idea of use. It is not recycling, it’s reuse. – Issey Miyake

What was once a regular egg box carton can be transformed into something beautiful….

Here is all you need:

  • egg box carton
  • scissors
  • paint
  • ribbon
  • hair clips
  • piece of card to mount your cut shapes onto
  • hot glue gun (pva is fine too but you’ll need patience!)

Firstly gather your egg boxes and scissors and then cut out leaf shapes from the egg box lid and from the egg holder sections you can cut and shape these into flower.

Paint and wait to dry

When your pieces are dry you can then arrange them and mount them onto the piece of card. We used a semi circle shape and then fixed the leaves and flowers with hot glue, regular PVA glue can be used but the drying time will take longer.

Ribbon was added to create a neckpiece and a clip for the hair piece, again we used the hot glue gun for fixing.

You can see here that pieces can be fixed inside pieces to create interesting blooms. Now all we need is a bigger jewellery box!
