18 creative ways to reuse egg cartons

drawerorganiserI thought the number of ways that egg cartons could be reused would be limited.

I was wrong.

Besides the plethora of kid’s craft ideas, there are also some nifty and stunning ways to reuse egg cartons for adults as well.

Below is a round up of just 18 ways to reuse egg cartons.

I did come across one more – using the pointy bit between the egg holes as a ring holder – it sounded like a great idea but the website refused to load, so I haven’t included it below, the website had a recent upgrade so check it out.

    Love the egg carton ideas. I have seen a sewing kit on Pinterest which I want to make. They decoupaged the carton with an old sewing pattern and added some lace and frills. Thanks for sharing.

    Makes we want to cry. We are always in need of egg cartons, as when we give out eggs we rarely get the cartons back.
