Here we've listed some of the coolest uses for any cardboard
boxes you might have spare:
- Cardboard makes a great canvas for painting on
as well as stencilling. You can cut it up with a craft knife and make yourself
a neat base to frame, or use it to cut out stencils for spray painting. (Hint -
If you're planning on carving pumpkin this Halloween - cutting out a stencil
using cardboard and then using a black spray paint to spray your stencil on the
pumpkin will make your job a lot easier). You can even layer the cardboard to
make textured pieces of art or cut into small shapes and paint over to make an
- If you're decorating your house, cardboard over
the floors gives a great cover from any splashes of paint. Put pieces of
cardboard along the path to the bathroom after painting too so you don't take
any surplus paint that has dropped to the floor with you!
- Why not really push the boat out and make
yourself a human sized cardboard car for a fancy dress costume? With enough
time and effort put in you'll be sure to come up with a one off and humourous
costume whatever the event is. If you have a LOT of time you could even try
making a multiple person costume, for example, a cardboard train!
- If you have a pet, then you could make a pet
home out of cardboard; this might be more time consuming, depending on how
small or large your pet is, but they will love it!
- There are a number of fun things you can create
from a cardboard box. Try making a dolls house, a boat, a car, etc. You can
pretty much make absolutely anything you can think of. Be creative!
- Picking some different sized cardboard boxes and wrap plain twine around
them; this can give the effect of a wicker basket. You can then line it with a
fabric of your choice and pull it over the top edges and you will have a
personalised and custom box no one else will have.
- A cardboard city is a very popular idea when
cardboard boxes are going spare. Your children will have loads of fun with this
one and the good thing it, there are no rules! You can make the cardboard city
however you want.
- Basically, you can make almost anything you can
think of. Be creative and have some fun with the spare cardboard.
So now you have some ideas of what to do with all that extra
cardboard you have lying around, you best get started creating something great
on your own or with your kids. Who knew something so simple could actually be
so much fun?
