At present, people are busy working with scissors every day, and the boy always has something to do with it. “Mom I want to cut“I just decided that we just had a few Make animals out of cardboard, The idea to make animals out of cardboard, I discovered by chance on Pinterest and was directly impressed. An old, old-fashioned one Cardboard, pencil and scissorsIt does not take more. A really great one upcycling DIY, which not only gave J.Boy a lot of pleasure, but also me.
Together we thought about what animals should become. For the rascal it was immediately clear that it was definitely a dino and I, I really wanted to little bird try. Because currently our branch over the dining table is pretty empty. After last week I finally got that Easter Mobile only a few yellow felt balls dangle there. And those are a remnant of this pretty Mobile made of felt balls,
So you can make easy peasy animals from cardboard
So it was time to make the branch a little more attractive again … As written, for simple DIY you only need three things:
- An old, stable box or a box
Who wants to raise the whole thing a little more professional, can still in advance Print templates or draw yourself, I just painted the animals directly with a pen on the cardboard. For me was only that you have to begin to recognize what an animal is;).
I cut out the birds, the dinos are a joint work of the boy and me. It must be said, of course, that he had the most pleasure in cutting the big box into many small pieces. Completely free, without lines and specifications.
If the animals are cut out of cardboard, they only have to small slits be cut so that the individual parts hold together better later.
Simple Upcycling DIY – With plenty of room for creativity
And done. Yes, this DIY is so simple and yet very special. Because not only the fact, that one uses an old carton, I think great, but also, that one can really get creative. At the request of the big one, I built a small landscape for the Dinos and “Tomorrow Mama, we'll make excavators, okay?”. Dööömmmm – there it was again, “the” excavator topic. But right, from old cardboard you can of course also make wonderful vehicles …
Oh and if we are already at cardboard and creativity, from old (toilet paper) roles can be quite wonderful one marble Run to build.
How do you like the little DIY?
