DIY “Slingpunk” Game

Our next idea was taken from Pinterest, which showcased a game called “slingpunk”. It looks like each side has either blue or red pucks. Each side uses a rubber band to pull and sling the pucks to the other side. It seems like Whoever has the most pucks on the opposite side wins. so in the picture, the one with only one puck left would be the winner. at least that’s what I assume the rules are. It looks like you don’t even need the rubber band, but you need to push the puck quicker than your opponent. For more instructions on how to make sling puck out of wood, click here.

Pringles Can Castle

Here is yet another Pinterest find of a castle made out of Pringles cans. If you eat a lot of chips at home or on your lunch breaks, this one’s for you. This is perfect if your kids are a fan of Rapunzel, and they want to play pretend with a princess in a tower. Or, if they generally like fantasy and medieval times, this might be a good item to make as well. Even people who play Dungeons and Dragons might find it to be helpful. If you want to know more about how to make this, check out the Cipta Craft YouTube channel.

Cardboard Desk Calendar

Here is yet another beautiful adult craft made by Tatzkreen Art. It’s great for anyone who wants a desk calendar without paying the high price at the store. Everything is made of cardboard, and the numbers are either stickers or painted on. It’s easy to flip the numbers on the rings, and change the date every day. If you brought this to work, people would be guaranteed to comment on it. It might even be a good craft to do with your coworkers. I can imagine keeping this for years, especially if you feel really proud of making this yourself. Just watch the YouTube tutorial to see the instructions on how to make this.

DIY African Masks

I got this next idea from Pinterest, which showcased a large variety of African style masks that someone made out of cardboard. Some of these faces also look like they might be Picasso paintings. I would personally look at an existing mask, and use that as a template for what you would want to make with your own cardboard. Use a blade or sharp scissors to cut out the pieces. Then use a hot glue gun to attach everything together. They look so cool that you can easily paint them and hang them on your wall if you wanted to. This would be really cheap artwork for you to put in an apartment or a dorm room. For instructions on how to make this, watch this YouTube video.
