Fun And Useful Crafts You Can Make From Cardboard And Plastic

Almost everything comes wrapped in cardboard or plastic, so we’re sure you have some of these materials lying around your house. So why not make something useful and pretty with them instead of throwing them away? We have a bunch of ideas we think you’ll love! Beginning with the shoes organizer using 5-gallon water jugs. Just stack them one on top of the other and you have your very own zero-waste shoe rack! Then, we’ll show you how to make a foldable laptop stand using a cardboard box.

Got a tiny apartment? Then maybe you could use our space-saving bed idea. All you need is some cardboard for the base. You won’t believe how easy it is! That broken plastic stool can be turned into a handy laundry hamper with just a few tweaks and rope. Find the instructions in this video! And chocolate lovers will really like the candy wrapper pencil case.
