How to Make a Chest of Drawers from Recyclable Materials
By being creative with the simplest of things fine arts can be born. Plus, you can take good care of our planet. If we zoom in on the map you can see that we are located on a small yet very important place.
The Israel Museum, in the heart of the museum you will find the youth wing where the recycling workshop is located. As am I. Hi. Here I will be able to show you how to make cool and useful recycled art.
So today, I'm going to show you how to make a chest of drawers from cornflake boxes. To begin with, you will need three cornflake boxes or cardboard box, three bottle corks for door handlers, four large plastic bottle corks with short legs, 32 ice lolly sticks, hot glue gun, PVC glue, sealing tape, a ruler, scissors, a craft blade, a stapler and a pen.
While collecting your stuff makes sure that the corn flake boxes are the right size to fit into the cardboard box. I use a box of 500 grams but other sizes will work just as well. Let’s make our first drawer. The first step is sealing the corn flake boxes with sealing tape. Step two, make a hole in the cornflake box. Step three, decorate your boxes. I choose to use fabric but you can be creative and use other materials like newspapers, magazines, paint, stickers or whatever you find around the house. Step four is obvious, repeat.
Step five put the fabric on the chest of drawers. Step six, make the drawers tracks. In order to have two tracks you’ll need to make eight like this. Each one made of four ice lolly sticks. Step seven, draw where the tracks will be on each side of the box. Step eight, attach the ice lolly tracks under the lines you draw. Step nine glue on the cork drawer handles. Step 10, paste the short legs on your little piece of furniture. And that’s it, we’re done. If you are an art lover or just love to be creative you are welcome to visit us at the museum and join one of our recycling workshops. Or you can just checkout the museum website under the youth wing section.
