Pretty Egg Carton Dresses

            My little girl is indeed a princess at heart. She wears a tutu every day, even over her pajamas.  It is adorable.

Last week, we were playing around with egg carton pieces & we came up with the perfect craft for our little princess.

We used 5 egg carton pieces for each dress. We started by snipping 3 egg carton pieces for the dress tiers.


We painted all of the egg carton pieces in the colors of our choice. My daughter wanted a silver & purple princess dress.




We glued each of the snipped pieces one on top of each other. We glued another uncut piece over the top of the tiers. Next, we glued the last piece of egg carton to the top upside down. My daughter has a low temperature glue gun that she loves. She used her glue gun & I used my own.

*Please note that the tip on a low temperature glue gun still gets hot & burns may occur, so use caution & your best judgment as to whether your child is able to operate.*



My daughter glued a large gem stone to the front of the dress for a pretty little accent. She then added pom poms to the top of her dress to form puffy sleeves. I made a strapless dress & one with spaghetti straps.

When my little one finished with her dress, she gave it a clay head to finish it off.  We loved how our dresses came out & they were so fun to make.

A couple of weeks ago, Mai & I made a footed pajama craft together.

She had so much fun decorating her own footie pajamas & kept making me cut out more. She did not forget about the fun that she had that night. This week she asked me if we could make our own princess dresses. I made a few different princess dress designs & cut them out for her to decorate.

I cut the dresses out on different colored construction paper & put them in a pile and let her choose which ones she wanted. We put out markers, crayons, ribbon, pom poms, yarn, buttons, cupcake liners, glitter and glue for decorating & embellishing.

We cut out print outs of my daughter’s head and glued them to pieces of construction paper & she glued the dresses on them . She wanted to draw her own head on some of them too.

I have to be honest, I think I had almost as much fun making these as she did. It turns out that big girls love princess dresses too.
