Build a House with Cool Milk Carton Crafts

We've Got Milk Carton Crafts Galore!

We've discovered that milk carton crafts are so much fun. You'll be amazed at how many different things you can build from a simple 1 liter milk carton.

Cut off the bottom and you have a great basket....Use it for Easter or Halloween or any other celebration! Placed on its side, a milk carton can become a truck or a boat.

We've decided to show you how to make a row of houses!

Take a look at what we came up with!

Milk Carton Crafts

The idea is very easy. Here's what you'll need:


  • A one-liter milk cartons, washed and dried
  • Construction paper
  • Foam sheets
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick, white glue or a glue gun (adult supervision required)
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils (your choice)


Wash out your milk cartons and let dry completely.

Place your dried carton on a sheet of colored construction paper. Measure how much paper you'll need to cover the milk carton on all sides. Cut out and glue to your milk carton.

When that's dry, go ahead and decorate.. The roof is made from a rectangular shaped piece of construction paper. We decorated ours with some red markers and drew shingles. You can come up with ideas of your own.

That's it....let the glue dry before you start playing with your new milk carton house! And thanks for's important!
