Hey Everyone! Today on the blog we’re creating a really fun DIY pendant light out of, wait for it, cardboard. You’re not even going to believe how we’re able to take a cardboard box that you normally would toss in the recycle bin and turn it into a awesome piece of home decor for your room or office, like I’m using it in. You’re not going to believe how the DAP® RapidFuse™ All Purpose Adhesive can bond to practically anything.

Step 1 : Mark your cardboard every 7 1/2 inches. You will want to fold this 5 times.

Step 2 : Use your yardstick and fold it on your marks with your marker. Cut off any excess with your craft knife. Step 3 : Cut your cardboard into 4 inch strips. Step 4 : Use scrap pieces of cardboard to hold your folded cardboard together. Use DAP® RapidFuse to hold together. Step 5 : Trace around a piece that has been glued together and cut out with craft knife. Step 6 : Trace and cut out a hole for your light. Step 7 : Paint 3 of your cardboard shapes with Americana Decor Satin Enamels. Step 8 : Paint 2 of your cardboard shapes with Americana Decor Metallics. Step 9 : Glue your pieces together and apply pressure for 30 seconds until DAP® RapidFuse sets. Isn’t this a fantastic project to create? I love up-cycling any and everything, specially when it is inexpensive pieces of cardboard. I will be using this light in my office and it seriously makes a great addition. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. The DAP® RapidFuse™ All Purpose Adhesive is seriously my new go to glue, I love how it doesn’t foam, dries clear, and can set in 30 seconds. It’s great for interior or exterior and great for rubber, metal, glass, wood, tile, stone, and more. For more visit DAP Facebook page!
