Halloween Monster Candy Box Supplies: What You’ll Need
- empty tissue box
- non-toxic paint
- paint brush
- non-toxic glue
- pom-poms, googly eyes, or other fun craft decor
- egg carton
- white paper
Step 1: Paint Box
Using a thick non-toxic paint, thoroughly paint the entire tissue box.
Step 2: Glue & Paint Eyes
Cut out two egg carton shells to be used as the monster’s eyes, and glue them to the dried box. Then paint the eyes the desired color. You can also paint the egg carton eyes before gluing them to the box if you find that to be easier.
Step 3: Make Monster Teeth
Using a four-inch strip of white paper, sketch triangle teeth stopping in the middle of the paper. Then cut the paper, using care to not bend either side. Glue the paper teeth to the monster box.
Step 4: Decorate Monster Box
Use pom-poms, googly eyes, or whatever else you have around the house, to decorate your monster box. You can also paint polka dots or any other designs onto the box if you’re short on other craft supplies.
