A simple cardboard room decoration idea for kids

Welcome to the first post of this week. Finally, I’m getting my strength back on staying consistent with content for my blog. However, for letting this be possible I had to do some changes on how to make things. Anyways, something I chose for this week’s post is something specific. This is a simple cardboard room decoration idea for kids.

We still in this situation but things getting slightly better. But, I still need to consume things lesser than usual. Because it’s difficult to restock when I run out of supplies, you know. I encourage people to keep working on what they are working but in a different way than usual. For me, like I just mentioned and it helps me to keep going.

Also, another reason is that I want to pick my posting schedule again. It’s been hard for me to make it possible with doing long and big projects. Like I used to do it before. I’m talking about more than two days working on an idea none stop. But this, it’s almost a day working on it. I just feel like I want to explain to you guys what’s happening with my content and update you about me.

The previous post was an idea I wanted to do for a long time and I finally, had the chance to do it. There is something in me that I want to try new ideas and find more ideas than possible within my niche. Honestly, It’s going well until I keep going without taking time to post more of an idea I found good for content haha. Anyways, please enjoy the simple cardboard room decoration idea for kids.

About the idea

There are few things inspired me to do this idea. Every project I do, it should have at least one purpose unless it’s something for chilled posts that I randomly choose. That’s why I struggle to decide which idea I should do first when it comes to writing about projects.

The first reason is that I wanted to do something quick and help me to finish in time so I can post it today. As I said, these are like one-day ideas and I’m probably going to do more of it in the future. Work on them in a short time. And still can be a nice decoration for the house or whatever purpose they made for.

The second reason, since I ever started doing projects I never did a decoration with only cardboard. There should be a layer of white thick papers added because I think it looks better. However, for this post, I decided to do one without any additional layers to it. It feels a little weird looking at it since it’s the first time doing it. This like a house without painting haha. Please enjoy the simple cardboard room decoration idea for kids

The base without white layer

Additional to the reasons I mentioned earlier, this could be good to make the kids busy decorating their room. DIY for kids is always fun because it’s their job to enjoy the time. My little brother gets creative with building stuff with Logos.

We are back to the same old beginning haha. However, this time, it will only be cardboard. This is base on a 22/13 cm measure to be able to hold all the items that will be created for this decoration. You can use any cardboard in the house as long as it has the right measures because we are about to set up a meeting.

Also, later when I was about to finish the project, I figured this helped me to consume less thick papers which is good for the supplies haha.

Anyways, something I also figured that cardboard has different types based on thickness haha. I might not be a manufacturer but it took me a while to figure this out.

Chair legs without the drawings and lines

Moving to the next step. You can’t guess yet but we are building a custom cardboard chair made at home haha. The picture above is showing the legs for it. And I thought to be more creative to create a new leg that I never did haha.

It might not be a perfect leg but it could hold an imaginary person or animal in that size. Also, the amount in the picture above is for two chairs that will be showing in the next pictures.

Drawings of the chair leg

Before proceeding to the next step, of making the legs, I drew the style of which I want it to look like and the picture above is what I wanted. It might look slightly different but still going to look nice in the end, don’t worry. It’s just my hand shaking haha.

The chair legs and bottom

I looked at the chair and divided it into two parts. The top and bottom parts. This so far the bottom side where is the legs and the flat surface which we sit on. In the picture above are the final look of the legs and the surface. You can do any leg style you want but that’s just what I wanted it to look like.

Chairs without the top

Here is the look of the bottom part of the chairs. It’s not yet finished but the picture starting to get clear and you will see the finished version of it at the end.

Also, as you can see, the cardboard is a little bit thick. That when I figured out you can have different types of it based on thickness. However, this type is good for this project.

Top items  for the chair

Now that the bottom is ready. We need the required items for the top side. I think it’s easy to figure the necessary stuff to put on the top for everyone to feel comfortable when sitting.

I like how you can do things like real life and actual things with cardboard haha. It’s fun to practice your knowledge and learn more about it.

There is the chair showing in the picture above with one missing item that will be presented in the last step. I might have said without any additional layers, but I had to add a white layer to the chair, you know haha. However, you see the full picture of it and will be even better when things get together in the end.

The table with top open

This might look like a box, but it’s not. It’s a table because I said we are going to set up a meeting decoration haha. I forgot to take pictures and I had to stop before doing the last step to take a picture. Though I took a lot of pictures, there will be only one will make it in the post.

Anyways, I think we are done presenting the essentials for this decoration and now it’s time to get things together and show the full and final picture. There might not be a long cinematic scene for this project haha because they are not that big and will take few seconds to get them finished.

Here is the final look of this project. As always, it’s a bit difficult to name projects like these. But as you can see what is it and you can put it on a table in the kids’ room for decoration.

I wanted to add something to make the picture better with a bird on a stand behind the chair, but it seems that it will be for another time for an upgrade In the future. Other than that, it’s ready for meeting and television shows haha.


This is was a fun project to do. I think the more time it will take to finish a project, the more it will test you how dedicated you are. It gets boring the more we spend time working on it. However, we have reached the end of this post. if you want to read about more of these posts. Maybe even better ideas in the future. Please subscribe or follow the blog. Have a wonderful day and as always stay home and stay safe.

  1. This is such a fun project for children – who doesn’t have masses of cardboard around from all those delivery parcels, haha. I also love the level of details on the chairs – those armrests are fab. Going to print this out for Flora, this should keep her occupied for a little while, thank you! 🙂 Lisa

    1. I agree with you haha. I thought to be creative with it but thank you. I hope she will like it, let me know how it goes.

  2. This is actually really cute. I’m surprised I didn’t think of doing it when I was young. I would use cardboard to make roads and towns but not furniture. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It was perfect the first time. I learn so much from you as well! Keep it up great post.

  4. This looks great – it’s perfect for the current time too. I’m sure you could keep kids entertained for hours if you asked them to make enough chairs to remake a classroom and pretend it was school. Such a fun craft activity for them too x


    1. that’s a good idea. It keeps them busy for a long time during the day or night to do such a thing like the whole classroom.

  5. What a great idea and something that would distract the mind for a while during these uncertain times. Thank you for sharing!

  6. my niece will surely enjoy making these crafts. I think i can substitute a normal white glue to the hot glue so she can create this safely. Thank you for sharing another great project
