Upcycle a Box Into a Kid's Play Stove for Under $5
How I upcycled a cardboard box and turned it into a kid's play stove for less than $5.
Turn a cardboard box into a play stove for just $5 total spent on it. $2 for cheap spray paint from Home Depot, play pots and silver duck tape from the dollar store ($3) I cut basic shapes for paper and old party hats. The chalkboard on the side was a frame I had on hand and spray painted using chalkboard spray paint (on hand) from Rustoleumusa. I also used a foam toy as the oven handle and spray painted it black. The oven knob was the top of a bottle of laundry detergent. Finished it off with hooks I on hand. A little imagination goes a long way!
Simple paper shapes go a long way.
To keep the cost low, I used the cheap spray paint from Home Depot. Each can is .89 cents.
