We may be experiencing heavy snowfall outdoors, but spring is a bloom inside our house. As a child I can remember making caterpillars out of egg cartons. It was a crafting favorite of art teachers everywhere. Egg cartons are not just for caterpillars though. There are many other possibilities.

Here is a cute & easy alternative to the cute little caterpillar. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here is a fresh bouquet of egg carton flowers.
