I thought I had signed up to bring a sweet treat for my son’s Kindergarten class Halloween party. I was all geared up to bring individual servings of spooky worms and dirt, until I decided to actually double check the sign-up sheet. Sure enough, there was my name, in my own writing, next to the “juice”.
I am not sure what I was thinking the day I signed up, as I’d much rather try my hand at making a fun baked treat then bring in juice boxes. Juice boxes aren’t inherently exciting, so I knew I gave myself the challenge of coming up with a fun way to make them Halloween themed.
I had my son help me look on Pinterest and amongst the mummy wrapped and jack-o-lantern themed juice boxes, he zoned in on this cute Candy Corn inspired versions by Meaningful Mama.
I wasn’t keen on the idea of cutting paper strips and gluing them all on to 27 juice boxes, so it was a happy realization that Duck Brand tape* comes in the 3 colors I needed. The tape strip sizes worked well and I loved that how easy it was to stick around all sides of the boxes.
To make your own candy corn inspired juice boxes, you will need:
- Juice boxes
- 1 roll each of white, orange and yellow Duck Tape
- Hot Glue
- Googly eyes
- Black Permanent marker
- Remove the straws off the juice boxes and set aside.
- Put a strip of white Duck Tape around the top of your juice box.
- Put a strip of yellow Duck Tape along the bottom edge of the box.
- Add a strip of orange Duck tape to the center of the box – overlapping the white and yellow strips.
- Using your hot glue gun, glue two eyes to the front of your box and tack a straw back on to the back of the box.
- Finish by drawing a smile on under the eyes with the black permanent marker.
