Welcome to Al Things Beautiful! For live videos and updates, like us on Facebook so we can connect!

Most of us who do online shopping, end up with plenty of cardboard boxes – likely destined to be thrown away. These charming ideas can transform cardboard into adorable decorations.

Materials required:

  • Cardboard
  • Poster colors or Acrylic paints
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Embellishments (optional)


  • Cut out the shapes on cardboard and paint them.
  • Allow to dry and glue the pieces to create animals, plants, vehicles, etc.,

Here are a few we made in our studio –
