I had all this cardboard infront of me one night and slapped it together to create a table piece for my daughters princess party


Material

  • 7 Long cardboard rolls
  • 1 Shoe box size box
  • 2 Smaller boxes (jatz box)
  • 1 Tube of glue
  • 2 or 3 Tubes of paint colours

Method

  1. Start with your shoes sized box and rearrange your castle towers (cardboard rolls) where you want them and trim if needed to make shorter towers. Do the same with your smaller boxes.
  2. Start gluing your rolls and boxes in place. Let dry
  3. Cut out the number of cones you need from cardboard scraps for the tower tops by cutting a circle with a section cut out the roll it together to make a cone.
    For the box towers you only need a rectangle of cardboard folded in half for the roofs.
    Glue in place
  4. Paint 2 coats in your colours of choice
  5. Het creative with a black sharpie to create the windows doors and decorations on the castle

Notes... Super easy one here. Made a great table decoration for a princess party

  • Pretty sure I have all I need for this. My daughter will love it. I wonder if I use an opening shoe box so she can open the roof and put things in?
