Easy, fast and a great way to recycle and get creative all at the same time! This egg carton print painting craft creates unique, color patterns on any surface. We love it for homemade wrapping paper and frame-worthy wall art. Or try it with fabric paints and make a masterpiece out of an old T-shirt!
