Creative Ideas For Leftover Moving Boxes
Wondering what can be done with those leftover moving cardboard boxes? Here are a few ideas on how to utilize these boxes in a more creative and artistic way.

Now that you’re done with planning, moving and unloading you will definitely have numerous moving boxes that you’ll have to deal with that you might want to donate or recycle. Believe it or not, there are a few creative ways to use those leftover cardboard boxes and decorate your home. 

If you’re wondering what to do with all those cardboard boxes after your move is done, here are a few creative ways to transform your cardboard boxes.


The easiest way to start a backyard garden is to use cardboard boxes. If you find the right size, you can use them to make adorable rustic plant boxes. Boxes made of cardboard are much lighter than clay, ceramic, or concrete pots. Since the boxes decompose, they can be placed directly in the soil. Have a reinforced bottom to avoid sloppy cardboard after you've watered your plants.


Boxes are easy to customize as they can be adapted in a variety of ways. Wrapping your gifts in different color cardboard boxes with a  few essentials like a bow, sparkling glitters, and tape can add so much value. It can make birthday, anniversary, or holiday gifts more exciting and stunning.


If you've lately moved to a new place and require drawer compartments, your unused cardboard boxes can be used to separate and protect your small or breakable items. It aids in organizing your items in place, providing you with an ideal method for getting yourself organized in your new place and maintaining it that way. Measure the size of each drawer and cut the cardboard into the desired size for maximum space.


A storage bin doesn’t always have to be boring, you can brighten it up by decorating the box with your favorite fabric cloth for a variety of things. All you have to do is redesign the boxes so that they become fancy containers for storing things like magazine articles and random household goods or even jewelery that can be stored with a napkin or  a foam at the bottom.


Use one of a medium sized box as a laundry basket by lining it with a cloth piece draped inside and wrapped around the edges of it. Until you buy a proper laundry basket, this will do nicely. 


It's time to have some fun, and your kids can use the leftover cardboard boxes for crafts and artwork. Whether they would like to begin with a birthday card or build a castle. To make them more compelling, you'll only need a few paint colors, tape, markers, and stickers.
