Paint your recycled egg carton on the outer edges in your favorite colors - we used rainbow colors for ours.

When the paint is completely dry, make a small hole in each end with the scissors.

Cut the colored ribbon into lengths of about 20 - 30 cms and thread it through the two holes, so that it can be tied securely onto someone's head - by tying the ribbons under their chin.
