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!



New Year Party Hats

Life is a party. Dress for it.     

Audrey Hepburn

Woohoo its party hat time, really it can be any time because these hats are fab and fun and gorgeously coordinated don’t you think!


Heres what you need:

  • patterned papers
  • glitter card
  • yarn
  • stickers
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • tape or glue


Using A4 patterned card roll into a cone shape and fix with tape or glue. Don’t worry if the pointy bit has a little hole at the top. Using your scissors level the bottom, this part will sit on your head.


Ribbons can be fixed to the inside, we used 15mm wide satin ribbon, 2 pieces approx 30cm in length. Stickers can be added and also cut out card shapes and letters, remember this can be for any occasion so you could do initials, star shapes, heart shapes, or anything that you fancy.


The pompoms were the last (and my favourite) bit to be added. We used our speedy pompom method that is wrapping the yarn around your hand approximately 50 times, slide it off, tie and secure in the centre and then snip the loops and clip into a ball. Position onto the point part and fix with hot glue.


Woohoo, lets party!
