Make a cute decoupage and clay egg carton to store your eggs in
Start off with one of your regular egg cartons. If you usually buy a dozen, go for a big box, or if you don't get through that many, pick a smaller one.
Cut the lid off the top of the carton and place to one side.
Break off small chunks of clay and mould them into the bottom of the egg carton.
Continue this until you've covered the whole egg carton, keeping the thickness even across the whole tray.
Leave the clay to harden for a few days.
Peel the paper carton away to reveal the clay carton underneath. Use a toothbrush to scrub away any difficult areas where the carton is stuck.
Pick out some decoupage paper to line the carton with.
Working in small sections, brush the inside of the carton with decoupage glue, tear off small squares of decoupage paper and stick them down, overlapping each other a little.
Add second layer and a third if it needs it and then paint the top with a layer of decoupage glue.
Leave the glue to dry overnight.
Fill with eggs and you're all done.
