Upcycled milk carton vase

Looking for a fun and creative DIY project? Follow the milky way and upcycle a couple of empty milk cartons. All you have to do is lend them some colour and your own look and feel, and soon they’ll be jazzing up your windowsill!

Step by step

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Start by rinsing the milk carton inside to make sure it’s clean. Use a white colour primer before you start painting the milk carton.

2. When the white paint is completely dry, choose your preferred background colour for the milk carton.

3. Take a coloured marker and draw a grid on each side of the milk carton.

4. Place a dried flower bouquet or some origami flowers in your new amazing, upcycled vase!
