Step 1: PVC Time

Picture of PVC Time
Using a sharpie and a ruler, make a mark that is 6 inches down from the top of the PVC pipe. Using the sharpie make a line going around the PVC pipe, this will make it easier to cut. Do the same thing from your previous mark and go down another 6 inches, and make another mark and line. 

In the picture, the black lines are where you need to cut. 

Step 2: Cut the PVC

Cut the PVC pipe according to the line using a PVC Pipe Cutter. (Go to your local hardware store to pick it up). These pieces won't be used until later on in the instructable, so you can put them to the side. 

Step 3: Prep

Take the eight bases of cardboard, which are all 3”X6”. If you have not cut out the cardboard pieces, do so now. 

 Heat up your hot glue gun. Make sure the hot glue gun is in a safe location, as it does heat up rather quickly.

Using a hot glue gun, glue two pieces of the cardboard together. This will create a thicker base. Make sure they are flush!


Repeat this step four more times until all 8 pieces of cardboard have been glued with another piece. In total you will have four pieces of cardboard.
