1. Spray Paint Without A Mess

You’ll Need:

  • cardboard box
  • box cutter
  • twine
  • pen

Here’s How:

Place a cardboard box upright in front of you and use a box cutter to make a slit in the top. Tie a piece of twine to the object you want to spray paint and thread the other end through the hole in the cardboard box. Tie the loose end to a pen and twist the twine around the pen until the object you want to spray paint is suspended midway inside of the box. Now you can spray paint the object without making a mess!
