Here is a fun DIY project for any aspiring artist. To make this Makedo Art Easel, all you need is a pizza box, some plastic lids and Makedo parts available from mymakedo.com.

Step 1: find and fold

Gather the materials for your Makedo Art Easel. You will need some flat cardboard, a pizza box and Makedo Parts.

To begin, create a fold on the lid at around 1/4 of the way from the hinge of the box.
<p>This makes a lot more sense than having to move an actual easel into your house for the kids to use! Haha!</p>
Also i vl like to add is that just cover the support of the drawing sheet wth a transperency or some plastic sheet to avoid wetting of the box-board!!! <br>Rest is all great!!!
Yeah great idea so the board doesn't get too soggy. Thanks!
most welcome!!! :D
Great work dude!!! <br>i made a similar 1 with a carton <br>was a bit complex fo me <br>bt the idea ws great <br>well m nt an artist <br>so all i did is gifted it to my sis :P <br>Nyc1 :D
Cool, would like to see it sometime! Thanks for the comment.
Great idea. Good for make-shift open air painting and a great project for a classroom.
This is beyond awesome! Makes me wish I had a pizza box, and Makedo parts. I bet the same could be done with simple binder clips for those of us who don't own Makedo. I'll try it the next time we order out.
Cool, be sure to share it if you do!
Oh this is so cool!!!
