RECYCLED CARDBOARD TREEHOUSE

Cardboard play treehouse

I love the beautiful Magic Wood tree houses but the big ones are quite expensive so we thought we would make one ourselves using recycled cardboard!

MATERIALS:

  • Thick corrugated cardboard
  • Cardboard tubes
  • Craft knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • String
  • Wood pieces to decorate (optional)
  • Brown paper (optional)

HOW TO:

Cut cardboard shapes for the base and different levels. We cut 2 of each shape and stuck them together to make them extra thick. We covered the top of the cardboard with brown paper to make a nice clean surface but this isn't necessary.

Glue the toilet rolls in position to make the legs for your different treehouse levels. I use a hot glue gun to attach the legs.

Add some ramps or steps between your levels. We also added a winch lift system!
