The possibilities are seriously endless with this idea. The below tutorial is to make a mouse nose but as you can see from the pictures the sky is the limit. It is fun to see what you can make using ONLY the carton but a few little decorations can go a long way with these. They would also make perfect design your own or pre-made party favours.
What you need:
- An egg carton
- String or elastic
1. Cut out one large pointy bit from the carton and paint it black
2. Cut a bow tie shape out of the flat carton lid and slice it in strips at both ends.
Leave about 1cm in the middle. Paint these white
3. Fold the ‘whiskers’ over the top of the ‘nose’ and attach with glue.
4. Make a small hole in each side and a few extra holes underneath for breathing through. Thread through two even pieces of knotted string.
You have just made one egg-tastic mouse nose!
