Reclaim: Egg Cartons

The Reclaim series is all about turning discarded old things into beautiful new things. It’s about making treasure from trash, reducing our waste and saving a little money along the way. Each episode features an everyday object and a variety of inspiring ways that object can be reclaimed.

This time, we’re playing with egg cartons!

    Wow! These ideas are so lovely! The only thing I can think to make with egg cartons is caterpillars…..

    I love the first one! I think an egg carton succulent garden would look so nice on my kitchen windowsill :)

    These are all such cute uses! I save them and use them to start seeds that just need a couple weeks indoors before heading out. I love these decorative ideas though.

    Hi guys, great minds think alike :)
    I have been pinning pictures with the idea of running a ‘repurposed’ series on my blog and stumbled upon you this morning. Have had a little look around…such a fun blog.

    Some great ideas and beautiful images, I love the little egg box sewing kit!

    I use mine for storing earrings – one pair per hole. You can also stack them easily in drawers and it is much quicker to find a pair each morning :)

    I love these ideas! The next time I give cupcakes away I’ll be putting them in an egg carton! x
