    Buy a cardboard box.
    • A good way to save on cardboard is to use boxes that have been purchased. You can save them and paint them black or brown.

    Figure out if you want to be an old fashioned TV or a newer one. If wanting to be an old one, your antennae will be made of wire or just stick a hanger on the top of the box. You will use black duct tape to stick it on with (if you use wires). Then you would paint the box with a little bit of silver so that it would look like a TV.
    • Obtain a roll of wood sticker.
