Egg Carton Christmas Ornaments for Kids

Our egg carton Christmas ornaments for kids will help you to add some personal touches to your Christmas tree. Rather than buying generic ornaments, why not make you own? Your tree will be unique and one of a kind.

We have a variety of great ways to make home-made ornaments and we are going to start with some fun little bells to add to your Christmas lights.  These are such a great egg carton craft for kids.

Not only will you save money on your decoration budget, we will also be re-using and recycling.

These are a great way to recycle your egg cartons and add a fun look to the lights on your tree.

After you have completed theses, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and make some of our other home-made ornaments. 

Not only do we decorate a tree but also our houses. Of course we have many great Christmas decorations as well. 

Spend some great family time together crafting up some egg carton Christmas crafts.

Egg Carton Christmas Light Covers – How to Make Egg Carton Ornaments

Craft Supplies:
  • Egg carton
  • Tissue paper
  • Glitter paint
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Scissors
  • Glue
Age Range:

4 years old and older.

Time to Complete:

20-30 minutes, plus drying times.

Step #1:

Cut out pieces of an egg carton – use as many as you would like to make for your tree. 

Trim them into a nice bell shape. Carefully use your scissors and poke a hole in the top, large enough for your light.

Step #2:

Wrap each of the egg carton shells with tissue paper – use a variety of colors. You can add a bit of glue to the inside of your shell to hold the tissue paper in place.

Step #3:

Add additional decorations, and use your imagination. We have painted one with glitter paint and added some sparkly pipe cleaners to another.

You can also add stickers, pom poms, or whatever else you can think up!
