There are many times when I am in need of several easels for various displays that I create for church or other projects. This time, I was in need of easels for my boutique display and I wasn't interested in spending money on them. I have a few nice easels around my house, but I needed several.
So, that's where the newly purchased fire pit comes in... at least the box it came in.
I used the thick sturdy cardboard corners to cut out (very carefully with a box/exacto knife) 5 easels.
The first one, I sketched on with a pencil and just guessed the size and shape. Then, when that one amazingly worked, I used it as a template to trace and cut out the others.
Then, I painted the cardboard with 2 light coats of spray paint.
Wah-lah! 5 perfectly stable and completely FREE easels to help me display my magnetboards and chalkboards on Friday.
