Spring SCRAPtastic!

At fairandfunky we run SCRAPtastic workshops with schools and community groups, creating individual works of art using recycled materials. Our simple crafts are fun for all the family, and are affordable too. Over the Easter holidays why not have a go at making your own little egg box Spring Wreath that doesn’t cost the earth!

 

You will need:

Egg box

Cardboard – a cereal box is fine

Scrap green and coloured card

Glue and scissors

 

Draw round a plate and a mug to be 

able to cut out a circular shape from your cardboard.

Cut your egg box up into smaller sections – we actually find it easier to rip the egg box.

 

You can cut each portion of your egg box into new styles – spikey, rounded or just leave ripped up. 

All work just as well.

 

Stick each egg box piece onto your cardboard using PVA glue.

 

Add the flower centres and leaves, cut from coloured scrap paper, in between the egg box pieces to create a beautiful egg box Spring wreath.

 

Here are a couple that were made earlier at SCRAPtastic workshops this week! 

Don’t forget you can join a fairandfunky SCRAPtastic workshop at the Tolson Musuem on Wednesday 11th April, at Huddersfield Art Gallery on Thursday 12th April and at Totties Garden Centre on Friday 13th April.
