This is my 3rd year participating in the annual Popcorn Box Party!
If you’ve never thought much about popcorn boxes, this blog hop will totally change that!
Each year a large group of crafters come up with the most fun, most unique ideas for creatively using a basic popcorn box!
Last year I made this Popcorn Box Candy Corn Doll:
Two years ago I made this Friendly Popcorn Box Monster:
This year, I made a Yarn Monster Popcorn Box!
Popcorn Box Party 2016!
Each year, the Popcorn Box Party is put together by my good friend Laura Kelly. Once everyone participating has signed up — which happens quickly as this is a popular annual event — Laura sends out a fun package of crafting supplies, including a popcorn box from World Market.
How to Make a Yarn Monster Popcorn Box
Supplies: (includes affiliate links — click here for details)
- Popcorn box (World Market)
- Scrapbook paper (Laura Kelly for AdornIt)
- 1-inch hole paper punch
- Glue Dots
- Orange pom pom trim (Expo International)
- Googly eyes
Step One: Starting near the bottom of the popcorn box, attach Glue Dots around the entire box. I started about one inch from the bottom.
Step Two: Cut yarn double the length you need, bend in half to make two equal pieces, then simply attach the yarn at the “bended” end to a Glue Dot.
Step Three: Repeat the steps working your way up the popcorn box, using shorter pieces around the top of the box.
Step Four: Use a 1″ hole punch to cut out two scrapbook paper circles, and attach a googly eye to each one. (If the googly eyes you use aren’t adhesive backed, just use a Glue Dot.)
Step Five: Attach the eyes to the front of your yarn monster with more Glue Dots, because every Yarn Monster Popcorn Box needs at least two eyes…or maybe more!
Step Six: Tie the decorative trim into a simple half-bow, then attach to the head with — you guessed it — Glue Dots.
I also decorated a pumpkin die cut that Laura included in our box of goodies: a piece of twine, some scrabble tiles and glitter spider attached with Glue Dots, and that’s it!
What do you think? I really like my yarn monster! She’s cute!
