One of my roommates made a joke that when she returned home from Thanksgiving break, that I’d greet her at the door in a tacky Christmas sweater and that the house would be completely decorated with holiday spirit. To her “dismay”, it wasn’t. I have no Christmas sweaters, and since I’ve moved to school… no holiday decorations other than one strand of the most basic lights one could imagine. I may not be covering the house in fake snow or setting up a nativity scene on the kitchen table, but I am combining kitchen and Christmas in true Broke College Girl fashion. This cost me nothing, and if I wanted to leave it up all year I don’t think many people would roll their eyes at my year long holiday spirit.
WHAT YOU NEED:
As many empty egg cartons as you can find
After that, draw the petal shapes on the individual egg pods. I lucked out with this egg carton, where the petals were already designed for me!
Some cartons come with holes in the bottom already, others you’ll have to poke a hole through with the tip of your scissors. Attach by putting each flower onto a single light.
The only difficult part is finding enough egg cartons to have a flower for each light!
Happy Decorating! -BCG
