Guitar From Trash




Hey guys! Today I'm going to make a guitar from trash. This is how its going to look when you finish. You can paint it or draw on it, but I did it like this to show people that it does not have to be fancy just so you can play with it.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You probably have these at home! You need a cereal box, cardboard, string ,scissors and tape.

Step 2: Start Cutting!!

Cut a circle in the middle of the cereal box.

Step 3: Now Cut Cardboard!

Cut two pieces of cardboard for the log part of the guitar.

Step 4: Tape the Cardboard

Tape them and make sure they wont fall apart. It should look like it looks in the picture.

Step 5: Time to Cut Again!

Measure the space left of the other two taped cardboards. Do this twice since there is two sides.

Step 6: Tape Them

Tape the cardboard to the side. It should look like in the picture.

Step 7: Get String!

Get your string (what i am using is similar to string but not the same, although string works better).

Cut it into 6 pieces.

Step 8: Taping... Again!

Tape each piece like this. Do this until you have use the 6 of them.

Step 9: It Should Look Like This.

Make sure you secure secure the pieces of string or else they will fall apart.

Step 10: Done!

Yes, this does look like a banjo... but trust me its a guitar. Theres only one rule. Have fun and enjoy it!
