What can you do with your egg cartons after you are done using up all the eggs? The compartmentalized spaces used for storing eggs are also perfect to use as seed starters, DIY candle makers, paint palettes, and for storing similarly fragile or round objects like Christmas ornaments and golf balls. The sturdy, lightweight material of styrofoam egg cartons are also ideal to use as cheap packing material and an alternative to packing peanuts.
If you ever need to start a fire for a campfire or in your fireplace, use cardboard egg cartons as fire starters. Simply stuff the egg cup with dryer lint, pour melted wax on top, and tear off the individual egg cup.
