Today is Living Creative Thursday! I wanted to share this Cardboard Box Barn that I made for my son’s first birthday.
I found the largest and tallest box I could buy. Then cut off the top flaps. Then I trimmed the front top of the box into a barn shape and cut and bent the sides to work as the roof. I used a lot of hot glue to attach the top of the roof in place and make it look nice.
One window was open, the other window had doors on it so my son could open and shut it. It later fell off because he kept using it so much!
I turned the extra pieces of cardboard into items and details for the barn. I made:
- Window boxes and glued silk sunflowers inside the boxes.
- A horseshoe to place above the door.
- A weather vane for the top of the barn.
The door was easy. After cutting the door, I attached a small plastic handle with hot glue.
My son’s cardboard box barn was made nearly 9 years ago! Way before I even knew what a blog was:-)
