3 Ways To Upcycle Cardboard Boxes

What’s the one thing we always have around the house?

Cardboard! Whether it’s shoeboxes, discarded Amazon packages, or moving boxes, we’ve always got tons of the stuff hanging around our houses. Fortunately, there are a lot of decent ways to re-use the stuff without just tossing it, and I’ve brought you three of my favourites!


I don’t know about you, but I’ve often been envious of those gorgeous homes in decor magazine spreads, with everything matching, right down to the storage! I’m especially fond of baskets, but if you’ve ever done any decor shopping, you’ll know the cost of baskets can get expensive. Even if you just stick with the ones at Walmart, you’re usually looking at around $10 for the smallest ones!

Fortunately, it’s easy to make your own “baskets” out of cardboard boxes!

You’ll need:

● A cardboard box

● Rope or twine of your desired thickness

● A hot glue gun

● Fabric, for the lining.
