Cardboard Tube Guitar

Every kid wants to be a rock star or a country music star at some time in their life. This Cardboard Tube Guitar lets them dream big at a young age.


Wrapping paper roll
Empty tissue box
Rubber bands
Packing tape


Begin by tracing your cardboard tube on each end of the tissue box and cut out the circle.  Make sure to cut your circle flush with the back of the box.

Thread your wrapping paper tube through the box so that about an inch sticks out the bottom.  Cut the plastic off the hole in the tissue box.  Take a few pieces of tape, reach inside the tissue box and tape your tube to the back of the box.

Stretch a few rubber bands around the tissue box and play your little heart out!
