Creative Reuse: Cardboard Construction Display

When I ran across this cardboard display, I was immediately taken with it. Not just because I have a soft spot for yellow and orange, but because I'm pretty sure you can recreate the look at home. Can you tell what it is? Check out the other pictures for a better view!

This display was in my local Anthropologie window and was created by using circles of cardboard that are painted on one side. Each piece was pre-scored on the back so that the "sides" folded in. The edges were then glued together to create this wonderful flowing structure you see here.

The idea could be used to make wall art, wall treatments, room dividers or even a curtain of sorts. Although it's not exactly traditional, the materials could all be scavenged or purchased for next to nothing. It feels a bit modern and a bit craft-project all at the same time, but that doesn't mean it won't look awesome in your home! Give it a try or make one for a friend, but either way, make sure you send us pictures of your creation!

Have you been by the Anthropologie near you lately? Even if you're not into the things they sell, it's still a great place to acquire inspiration for diy projects around you home!
