5 Fun Ways to Use Cardboard Boxes

We take cardboard seriously at PSI Group. But that doesn’t mean we don’t know how to have a little fun with our favorite packaging material!

The versatility of corrugated boxes makes them perfect not only for packaging products from food to medical equipment but also for things like making homemade Halloween costumes, building theater sets, and creating amazing works of art.

Check out these five other fun ways you can use cardboard boxes.


Make your own furniture.

Cardboard furniture has become popular in recent years. The strength, durability, and low cost of cardboard make it an ideal material for pieces such as this DIY cardboard headboard or this circular cardboard shadowbox.

If you’re up for a bigger challenge, try making any one of these cardboard couches.


Light up your home or office.

This beautiful geometric cardboard lamp will brighten any room. All you need is some cardboard, a cutter, a ruler, a pencil, hot glue, white glue, an LED light bulb and bulb holder, and plenty of time and patience to cut out all those pentagon shapes.


Create your own cardboard arcade.

Forget about playing pin the tail on the donkey at your child’s next birthday party. Instead, provide hours of fun for kids and adults with this inexpensive and easy-to-make cardboard skeeball game.


Construct an epic playhouse.

Young children love cardboard boxes. Anyone who’s ever watched a toddler play in an empty refrigerator box knows this to be true. You can turn a few minutes of fun into days and weeks—or even months—by turning a cardboard box into the playhouse of your kid’s dreams, like this one.
