Upcycled Cereal Boxes to Casino or Poker Centerpieces.

Ok, I know I have done a few different Poker or Casino Night related centerpieces, well, this is the last project for now.  I had to do nine tables for my daughters Softball league Casino Night and I wanted a few different ones to give character to the theme.  Stop by and check out Casino Night Dice Centerpieces  and Budget Friendly Casino or Poker Centerpieces Made Out of Recycled Cans by clicking on the link.


What you will need:

  • Cereal Boxes
  • Hot Glue
  • Playing Cards
  • Black, Red and Gem ribbon
  • Styrofoam Ball
  • Tulle
  • Gemstones
  • Poker Chips
  • Skewers
  • Black Paint
  • Scissors

First, cut the cereal box just below the height of the playing cards.

Then, add hot glue to the box and add the playing cards. I choose to place some of the cards with the front of the card showing and then place the next card with the back of the card showing.  Continue this process, alternating front and back of cards around the entire box.

Next, you will want to cut all the ribbons to fit around the box.

Once, I cut the ribbon I hot glued the red ribbon (3/4″ Ribbon) to the inside of the black ribbon (1/2 ” Ribbon). Hot glue the ribbons around the middle of the box. Now, hot glue to the gem ribbon to the center of the red ribbon.

Now, hot glue half the Styrofoam ball into the inside of the Styrofoam box.  This will help with adding more decorations to the box later.

Finally, we hot glued some of the playing cards to the skewer that we painted black.  I tried to make poker sequences, but as you can see, I am not a poker player and glued the cards backwards.  Oops. My husband informed me this, when I showed him my finished products.

As you can see above and below, I glues tulle to the inside of the boxes, glues black gems on the tulle to give a little Bling, and glued poker chips to the tulle as well.  If you like the poker chip look check out my Personalized Poker Chips how to by clicking the link.
