Juice Box Monster Tutorial

Juice Box Monster

I’ve seen mummies made out of juice boxes, and this is my version of a juice box creature. These fuzzy friends make such a fun addition to lunch boxes during Halloween, or any time! I made these cutie pies for Charlotte’s monster birthday party one year, and my kids request them all the time. They’re so simple it’s silly…but here’s a quick tutorial for all your juice box monster-making needs.

All you need is a pack of crinkle paper, a giant wiggle eye, a hot glue gun and some juice boxes (extra points if the color of the juice box is similar to that of the crinkle paper…then bald spots aren’t as obvious.

Step 1: While the glue gun warms up, remove the straw and set aside.

Step 2: Working in 1 inch sections, spread hot glue on the front of the juice box, and press in a clump of crinkle paper. Work until the front surface of the juice box is covered. (NOTE: leave the bottom and a space around the straw opening uncovered). Move onto the sides and back. Work until all sides are covered. Except for the bottom…unless you want a wobbly juice box. And nobody wants a wobbly juice box.

Step 3: Monster grooming. Gently comb through those luscious locks with your fingers, pulling out loose ‘hairs’ so they don’t shed all over your party. Then trim any unruly/overgrown sections until you’ve achieved the desired look. My kids love to help when it’s monster hair cutting time. Grab the kid scissors and get snipping!

Step 4: Glue on the eyeball.

Done. Now make a whole brood of them and drink up!
