Recently three creative friends and Reddit users worked together to create a life-sized cardboard pirate ship. This enormous cardboard creation may not be sea worthy but it's extremely detailed and impressive. Looking it over, one can't help but think these Reddit fans (Joel, Mikey and Josh) must have been big Pirates of the Caribbean fans.

A Treasure Island themed Halloween party and a desire to save money on decorations led to the construction of this epic art project. These thrifty and artistically inclined friends banned together to create this massive party prop.

This crafty vessel has a sail, firing slots for hypothetical cardboard canons and even a plank for excommunicated pirates to walk. This grand scale art project proves that one man's trash (in this case, cardboard) can be another man's treasure. Stats for Cardboard Pirate Vessels Trending: Older & Average
