    How to create a rooster from an egg carton

    Come realizzare un gallo con il cartone del uova

    I don't know Italian, but this needs no words - the pictures are great. Thought I'd pass it along to all you creative people as an inspiration.

    Now if we could find those egg cartons. All I see are not that tall and pointed down the middle. Very nice to be that talented.

    All I can say is save those egg cartons and let me have time off of work to give this a try. What a beautiful creation from something we recycle on a regular basis.

    Great link; thanks. Egg cartoon are available in most farm and home stores for fifty cents each or check your local grocery store. I collect cartoons to put eggs into with four laying ducks and about 18 laying hens are filling up my refrigerator all too quickly. Think there are about 16 dozen in there right now, but we still have to collect eggs today.

    I was glad I hit the "translate" button because otherwise I would not have figured out that instead of throwing away the smaller part of the paper mache bowl when she cut it, she reversed it and used it to reinforce the other half. Also, she says she used hot glue to assemble the thing, and I probably would have used something else. I'm sure hot glue would work very well. Also, I enjoyed learning that she is a 50-yr-old kindergarten teacher in The Marche region of Italy.

    If anyone makes one, I sure hope you will share a picture with us!

    My page has a button at the top to translate the page into English. If you wanted to then follow the directions you could, but the translation is actually pretty funny. Like a computer is translating it word for word, not in context like a person would. Still, you can understand what's going on.

    Over on the left side, you can ENGLISH translation. It works. The rooster is really neat! Wish I had the creativity to make something like that!
