Creative Shoebox Craft

Posted Thursday, February 06, 2014

School has just gone back here in Australia after our long summer holiday. That means new school shoes for the kids and as a result I have a lot of empty shoe boxes.

Here are some creative uses for empty shoeboxes.
1. Kitchen cook top.
Then make your very own felt play doughnuts from the DIY instructions from The Sewing Loft.
2. Car Garage complete with car ramp and parking spaces.
Team up with some gorgeous vintage cars from Piccolinavigli to zoom up and down the ramp.
3. Doll House. You could make a separate house like below or get creative and make each shoebox into a different doll house room and join them altogether.

This dollhouse is just perfect for some little kittens to play in the garden like these from Joelles Dolls.
4. Pirate Treasure Chest.
Combine this shoebox treasure chest with a pirate activity set complete with pirate map, gold coins and a pirate hat and eyepatch from Mels Creative Wishes.
5. Pencil Tidy.
Use some gorgeous crochet pencil cup organisers from CROriginals to keep the pens neat and tidy and standing upright.
