Things you can make at home using cardboard

If you have a lot of cardboard and you don’t know what to do with it. Well, let me tell you that there are a lot of things you can do and some of them are very helpful for you.

I’m a DIY craft blogger and currently, I’m using cardboard and papers to make awesome decorations and ideas that can help you in your daily life.

In this post, I will be talking about 3 ideas that you can do at home. And these ideas on the blog and I have tutorials on how to make them as well. Easy and good ideas to make use of the cardboard.

Also, I’m still going to make more awesome ideas that you can make using cardboard. You can subscribe to the blog or follow me on Twitter and WordPress.

Well, these projects will also require paper which I use to add white layers and other ways to help to build the DIY crafts. I’m sure most of us have a lot of A4 papers and this also a good way to make use of them. If you have extra and don’t want to throw them away. Which I don’t recommend unless there is no use for them.

First I’m going to talk about is one of the projects that I made for wall decoration or in another way, as a door hanger. You can hang it anywhere you want as long as it’s the perfect spot though.

I made this one last Christmas and as you can see, the green leaves and flowers. You can read about it here and learn how I made it.

This is very easy and doesn’t take a lot of time if you are concerned about time-consuming. However, messing up a step can happen and that will make it longer than expected haha.

Its way to saves money and allows you to decorate the house. Also, the flowers were the first time to do that and the results were good haha. As you can see in the picture above.

You will also need colored paper for this one. I said earlier A4 paper and I meant the white to add the white layer. But also, colored ones for decoration haha.

Overall, things you can easily get or already have at home. You can make a good DIY decoration for the house.

This one is fully made out of cardboard and it is strong enough to hold the books. Whether you put them on the top and inside the drawer. It’s something I even didn’t know would work, but once I finished it, it seems it is possible.

The handle is also made out of cardboard which cool because you can customize it and it works perfectly. You can check the tutorial on how to make this DIY project here.

You can also add more decoration if you want or stickers to the side to add more style to it.

3-Decoration you can interact with

The last one on the list is something you might have seen recently if you an older reader as well. In this one, you can interact and change the view as you wish by spinning it.

It’s also made out of cardboard and easy to do as well. However, I used paper to add decoration to it. Also, for adding the white layer.

Something cool about this, you can add more to the center. If you don’t like stars, you can add duck haha. But I just made stars and circles. If you have other things. For example, birds. You can add them to the center as decoration.

You can check the tutorial and how I made the cardboard spin smoothly and change the view of it. It’s also one of the projects that won’t take forever to make which is cool.

  1. My niece loves the cardboard boxes her toys come in more than the toys lol. I’ll show this to her dad so maybe they can do cardboard projects together.

  2. you have a great skills but this card board are not that durable…i hope that you can adapt your skills through metals or wood wich are more tougher materials

  3. We always have so much cardboard around the house (thank you, Amazon) but most of it gets used for making stables and horse yard accessories! I’ll have to see if I can persuade Flora to try some of your ideas too 🙂

  4. The amount of cardboard I have in my house at the minute is insane – this is exactly the sort of post I needed to read. I now know exactly what I can do with it now (and my younger cousins will love it) 😀

  5. There are really creative ways of upcycling cardboard. I really like the portable bookshelf idea. The door decor looks like a fun project to complete with my niece! Thanks for sharing these.
