Egg Carton Crown
E has been longing to transform an egg carton into a crown. Yesterday, with the sun streaming through our window and V taking her afternoon nap, we got the paints, glue and glitter out and she made this lovely headpiece. It was lovely to spend time one-to-one, too. E was so focused and enthusiastic and no sibling distractions meant we could chatter uninterrupted. The end result is quite fragile, so it won't last long, but boy, did it make her happy, as you can see.
Egg Carton with 3 high pointy egg dividers (see pictures below)
Skewer to make holes for elastic
Cut out 3 or 4 pointed sections of your egg carton, depending on your head size.
Paint the outside yellow and leave to dry.
Paint the outside all over with pva glue.
Sprinkle liberally with glitter and leave to dry.
Place a piece of sellotape over the ends of the carton where you'll make holes to thread the elastic. This will
help prevent the cardboard from ripping.
Use the skewer to make a hole in the cardboard, large enough to thread your elastic through.
Thread the elastic through the hole and tie a knot to secure.
Repeat on the other side.
