Cut your cartons in squares
Shape your flowers
Once the paint has thoroughly dried, use the utility knife to cut a small X shaped slit in the bottom of your flower. This slit is where you insert the light bulbs
Insert one of the light bulbs through one of the flower just far enough that you can remove the bulb and change it if it burns out
Watch Sophie demonstrate how to make your own egg carton flower lights in the video below!
Home & Family airs weekdays at 10 am ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.
