Happy Earth Day! DIY Cardboard Chandelier

Categories: Crafts and hobbies, How-to

In anticipation of Earth Day on Sunday, we’re offering a free project  via Etsy’s How-Tuesday from forthcoming book, Paper Made! 101 Exceptional Projects to Make Out of Everyday Paper by Kayte Terry. So before you practice the third of the three Rs (Recycle), dig through that bin and practice the second R — reuse that cardboard box by transforming it into a Modern Fete Silhouette Chandelier!

And there are plenty more where that came from… 100 more projects, to be exact. So dig into your stash of candy wrappers, wall paper scraps, junk mail, leftover wrapping paper, and old office materials — and get making! (Forget Earth Month, I have a feeling Earth Day might turn into Earth Year…)

    Fascinating! It’d make my day if I had some time to get more diy done! I really ought to get double glazing for my bedroom, mow the yard and so on.
