Get poppin’ with our fourth and final cardboard box Halloween costume! Honest Chief Marketing Officer, Chris, and Teddy (his too-cute tot!) are showing us what can be made with a few Honest HQ staples: cardboard boxes and popcorn. Tune in below and get ready to get crafty.
- Essentials Bundle box
- Paper plate (to trace holes for head and arms)
- Box cutter
- Roll of white craft paper
- Double sided tape
- Red paint for stripes (Optional: duct tape, ribbon, or paper)
- Paint brush
- Popcorn (Optional: tissue paper)
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Popcorn labels (2 - front and back of box)
- Red or white shirt
- Red or white pants
- Red or white hat
- Today we’re using a large Essentials Bundle box. The first thing you’re going to do is cut off the bottom flaps.
- Though we don’t like to cover up our delightful Honest box, to make your box look more like a popcorn container, you’ll need to cover the top and sides with white craft paper. We’ll use double sided tape to make the paper stick.
- Next, use a small plate to cut holes on the top and sides of the box for your child’s head and arms.
- You can create guidelines for the red stripes using a ruler and pencil, then let your kiddo paint in the stripes with a water-based craft paint. We’ve already completed this step to allow time for the paint to dry.
- Section by section, put some hot glue on the top of the box and pile on the popcorn. This takes a bit of time, so you have the option to use yellow tissue paper instead.
- Lastly, we printed large “popcorn” labels to attach to the sides of the box with a few dots of hot glue.
Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend, friends!
