Since haunted houses make me cry and The Ring still haunts me over ten years later, I thought a more lighthearted party theme of monster mash would be a better fit for my Halloween festivities this year. These favor boxes are fun to make and easy enough that kids can help out. You could make a crafternoon out of it.
– small cardboard boxes or containers
– various colors of felt
– small poms (optional)
– paper straws
– hot glue
The real direction here is to just play with your supplies and have fun creating your own monsters. But here’s how I created mine:
Step one: Cut out eyes, mouths, horns, and various monster features from felt. Attach different pieces of felt together with hot glue.
Step two: Attach the facial features to the container or straws with hot glue.
Step three: Punch holes into the lid of the container with a knife and insert the straws with the googly eyes.
Step four: Fill container with treats for a sweet, monster takeaway.
