Make Armor Out of Cardboard

Here’s a fun and educational craft project – Artist Warren King gives step-by-step instructions to make a realistic suit of armor out of regular old cardboard.

Supplies consist of cardboard, hot glue, elastic bands, rubber bands, velcro, and a little paint. You’ll be amazed at how he turns these simple materials into a functioning suit of “armor.”


Clear photos document every step of the process.


Once the suit is painted, it could pass for an all-metal construction.
