Craft Difficulty Rating: Easy
You Will Need:
Paper towel cardboard tube
Brown grocery bag
Clear packing tape
Brown tempera paint
Cover the outside of a shoebox with a brown grocery bag and secure with clear packing tape.
Trace a circle, using the cardboard tube as your guide, around one of the smaller sides of the shoebox in the center, to hold the neck of the guitar. Cut this circle out. Set aside.
Paint the cardboard tube with brown tempera paint. Stand it up to let it dry.
Once the cardboard tube dries, insert it into the hole on the side of the shoebox to make the neck of the guitar.
Place six rubber bands over top of the shoebox, three on each side of the cardboard tube.
Now you are ready to play some music for your family and friends!
