Grab your Geetar and Get your ROCK on.

I am so not a real crafty gal but every once in awhile I get the itch. I found a great craft and had to share. My boys LOVED it.

Is this not the CUTEST Geetar EVER?

Here is what you need:
  • kid-size show box
  • paper-towel tube
  • cardboard tube from a dry-cleaner hanger {Cut into two 4-inch pieces}
  • 6 brads {what is a brad you ask? Well... its metal fasteners that anchor objects onto a page}
  • bread-bag tag
  • tape
  • paint {if you want}
  • rubber bands
  • glue
1.Remove the box lid. Cover the box, lid, and paper-towel tube with the paper of your choice.   Lay the tube on a table, positioning one end against the short side of the box and centering it along the bottom edge. Trace a circle around the tube. Draw 4 lines that circle (as if cutting a pie), then, with a knife, cut along the lines and through the box. Slide the tube through the hole until it hits the other end of the box and secure it with tape.

2.Cut an oval in the center of the lid, then put it on the box.

3.Stretch 6 rubber bands lengthwise around the box.

4.Slide the 2 dry-cleaner–tube pieces (decorated with tape or paper) under the rubber bands above and below the oval. Glue to secure. This will allow the “strings” to twang. (Cut chopsticks would work, too.)

5.Screw the brads into the top of the cardboard-tube neck for the tuning pegs.

6.Pick away with the bread-bag tag.

Hope you enjoy your guitars... me and the boys are turning up the tunes and getting ready to get are rock on!

{Thanks to Real Simple for the great pic and idea}
