Egg Carton Print Painting


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!


What you will need:

Empty egg carton

Acrylic paints

Cardboard trays (one per paint color)

Plain paper



Step 1: Cut egg carton into thirds (you’ll be working with one at a time)

Step 2: Pour paint into trays. Dip egg carton into paint.




Step 3: Apply paint to paper, creating an allover pattern.


Step 4: Repeat with additional colors. Try rotating the paper or layering colors for a unique effect!
