April 27, 2012Welcome back to this week’s How To – where I made a Cardboard DIY Pirate Ship for the children!
I like to layer my paper in different directions – you know how when you tear newspaper it one direction it tears really is easily, but not in the other?
7) Let dry again and add detail – I painted on some skull and cross bones and anchors. I’ve been dying to see this since the teaser (prior to covering in paper mache) and it is amazing!
What a cute little pirate ship…my boys would have so much fun playing with one like that! After all the amazing things you’ve posted to Creative Juice Thursday over the past year, I just had to feature you {and much more in the future too} at the new site.
I posted here about the first stage of our home renovation; creating a huge family kitchen and living space what was originally a formal reception room for visitors. The logs are kiln-dried and sanded, and we spent a comical evening wobbling on ladders arranging them (and glueing them in place, for safety reasons).
The long, shallow console table is almost 2m and holds a constantly changing display depending on the time of year and whatever junk shop or ebay finds I’ve dragged home. Bob (below) is one of my oldest possessions and was one of my first purchases after leaving university and moving into a shoebox-sized rented house.
The chest (below) was given to me by my mother when I was fourteen, as a junk shop find for my bedroom.
This olive tree is a faux one, rescued ex-display from a shop which was closing down; it looks beautiful at Christmas time bedecked with tiny silver baubles and white porcelain bells.
Last Thursday we played hooky from work, nursery and all things domestic and took to the skies for a short hop over to the island of Jersey, where my wonderful brother and sister-in-law live. It’s been a chaotic week here chez nous, with builders in residence, my husband travelling, and flat-pack-tastic furniture from IKEA covering every surface awaiting my amateur attempts at self-assembly. I used a square cardboard box as the base, then stapled long pieces of cardboard either side to form a boat-shape.


Harry’s telescope is 3 empty toilet rolls, wrapped in black paper and edged with glued-on ribbon.
Even pirates need to eat once in a while, so I constructed this fishing line from a slotted wooden spoon, ribbon and fish shapes cut from coloured card stock. And so, as the sun sets we will sail off in our cardboard ship to seek our fortune on the ocean wave, and turn a blind eye to the 648 pieces of pre-drilled swedish hardwood which are scattered throughout the house. I kept most of the boxes pretty simple, but some I wanted to use just in the playroom for Harry’s artwork and photos, so I decorated three clothes pegs with animal faces, shown below.
I use these mainly over fireplaces, because we have them in most rooms, but they’d look equally cute on bookshelves or cupboard tops. We added an apronful of windfall apples from the garden and some homemade lavender sugar to make these individual crumbles, which seemed to disappear in the blink of an eye, though doubtless will reappear on my waistline shortly.
3 tablespoons of sugar (halve this if using eating apples, which are much sweeter and less tart). Peel, core and chop the apples into bite-sized chunks, and soften on the hob with a spoonful of water and the sugar. Today the house is once again filled with swirling brick dust as our renovations continue, though it is eerily silent as the builders seem to have downed tools in search of sunshine, and have not been seen since Thursday. Harry’s current passion is rockets and outer space, having discovered Wallace and Gromit and their adventures to the moon in search of cheese. The captain needs a proper entrance, of course… ┬áReels provide doorknobs on both sides, for pilot access and to firmly shut the door once inside, in case of aliens (or grown-ups). Make this pirate ship for a wonderful birthday party decoration or ┬áinto the Nina, Pinta or Santa Maria for Columbus Day.

I used some nail scissors (that I have especially for crafting) – as they have a nice round curve.


The deck is quite fragile and is the part that probably benefits the most from the paper mache. Well, I believe that if you criss cross your paper layers when paper maching, you get a stronger final construction. With the Summer season drawing to a close, we had the beaches to ourselves and spent the days roaming the sand, collecting shells, driftwood and seaweed and building castles and kingdoms.
Whereas strawberries are quite robust and able to resist the pincer-like grip of a two-year old, blackberries were something of a revelation to H, given their tendency to explode into purple mush at first grasp. I used lavender sugar, made a few months before by stirring dried lavender sprigs into a jar of sugar and sealing tight; this gives a lovely hint of flavour and aroma to the sugar which is enhanced by cooking. If you’re a cardboard recycling fan, you might also like our cardboard train and our cardboard shop. Everything on the site is 100% free for use by parents, teachers, scout leaders, and child care providers. Then glue all the discs together with strong (!) glue and finally glue in place on the boat.
I reckon it would be a really good pinata for a birthday party if it was built a bit bigger with a weakened section – what do you think? See what you can find at home and amend our DIY Pirate Ship How to, to suite what you have at home! Near the middle I snipped the fabric, threaded through some string and with that tied the sail to the mast!
I raided my stash of beads and charms, and simply replaced the original paper tags with something a little more interesting. Best to cut your two side panels and the back, tape it all together and then to cut your base and desk to fit your boat.
