Spotted: DIY Circus Train from Old Tea Boxes

DIY Circus Train

I am loving this whimsical little circus train that crafter Mer Mag made from old tea boxes and brightly colored duct tape!

She and her boys got crafty and cut up some empty tea boxes from the pantry to make these little trains. They used duct tape to embellish, but I bet you could cut back on the tape in this project if you used junk mail paper and a glue stick instead. All you need to make your own are:

  • Small, empty boxes (from tea, animal crackers, etc)
  • Duct tape
  • Junk mail and a glue stick (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Brads
  • Imagination!
