I’ve been working on turning egg cartons into a plant vase with a Scandinavian look. First, I cut a couple of cartons in half and flattened parts of them to make them look better. I painted them all white with acrylic paint. Now, I’m trying to decide whether to stick with the white or maybe change it to a soft gray. The white works well as a base, so I can easily switch colors if I feel like it later.
Materials I have gathered so far
The next step is figuring out how to make the cartons waterproof. A way to do this would be to coat them with a plastic sheet and glue them together. I am not sure if this would be stable enough or how exactly to coat the egg cartons. Another idea I have is to stick them onto a glass container and use the cartons as decoration. This way, the cardboard becomes part of the design.
