DIY | Upcycling: Egg carton decoration

Upcycling: Eierschachtel dekorieren für Ostern

Today I will show you a quick and easy upcycling idea in which an egg box is transformed into a beautiful spring and Easter decoration. I just had to make something out of this pretty blue egg carton that I found recently. I simply didn’t manage to throw it away! Filled with moss, eggs, tea lights, feathers and flowers, the egg cartoon can be reused as a table decoration.

With the following step-by-step instructions you can easily make the egg cartoon upcycling yourself!


Here you can see the tools I used for the upcycling idea: household scissors and flower scissors.

I use the Japanese flower pruners Okatsune 103*


I used these materials to upcycle the egg cartoon: a blue egg cartoon, two test tubes, decorative eggs, moss, feathers, two LED tea lights and flowers (daffodils, snowdrops, gypsophila and blueberry herb).

Instructions | Upcycling: egg cartoon decoration

Step 1: Prepare egg cartoon

In the first step I prepare the egg cartoon.

First I cut off the cartoon upper part with the scissors.

Then I cut off the top part of the cartoon tips so that I can later put the test tubes through the holes.

Tip: Don’t cut off too much so that the test tube holds up well!

Step 2: Insert test tubes

Now I insert the two water-filled test tubes into the holes in the egg carton.

The result then looks like this:

Step 3: Decorate the egg cartoon

Now I decorate the egg box.

First I put some moss in the hollows.

Then I put the decorative eggs in it.

Then I insert two LED tea lights. I use electric lights here for safety’s sake. Since our Advent wreath with dried flowers burned down, I’ve become a little more careful ;).

Step 4: Insert flowers

Now I cut the flowers to the desired length.

I use my flower scissors, so that the flower stems are not crushed and can absorb water well,

Then I put the flowers in the test tubes.

Finally, I add a few more feathers.

And the decorated egg cartoon is done! I hope you enjoyed this DIY as much as I did and that you enjoy looking at the spring decorations!
