Howdy folks! I love this time of year! I have some gourds on display in my home and pretty soon I will be putting out the corn stalks and hay bales outside for decoration. We have pumpkins on the porch already that we are so excited to carve but we don’t want them to spoil! At least we can make up a bunch of these cute boxes to decorate with:
I really like this idea because I can enjoy these sweet Halloween boxes and then fill them with candy and give them away on Halloween night or drop them off on friends doorsteps for fun! That is called “booing” or “ghosting” and I live in a community with very sneaky peeps who deliver goodies all around each others houses in October. It is a lot of fun! Of course all of the parents know who the treats are from before we let out kids have them (but don’t tell the kids that!)These boxes are made from paper take out boxes from Papermart so you know they are just as affordable as they are cute. Watch the video to see how to make them:
- Small Kraft Take-Out Boxes
- Chevron Paper Straws
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Brushes (1″ foam and #6 round)
- Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue
1. Paint the box with the main color.
2. Paint the face details.
3. Cut two 1/2″ long pieces from a paper straw and hot glue to the side for bolts on Frankincense’s Monster.
TAKE THIS IDEA AND RUN WITH IT! Think of all of the fun things you can paint on these take out boxes for different holidays and events! Happy crafting!
