Popcorn Box Blog Party 2015-Candy Corn Galore!

Hey friends!  I'm back again for another HALLOWEEN themed easy DIY project!  I told you I heart Halloween so much :-)

For this wickedly cool blog party, hosted by the lovely Laura Kelly of Laura Kelly Designs, I took a plain 'ol popcorn box and up cycled it into a super cute kawaii candy corn popcorn box for the Popcorn Box Blog Party 2015!




Here is how I made my super adorable kawaii candy corn popcorn box (don't try to say that 3x's really fast):

I used painters tape to section off the popcorn box like so:



Something that I did not do but will in the future was to prime the entire box with white paint.  It will help cover the stripes.  I used Apple Barrel acrylic paint and a foam brush to paint.

 After I painted a section, I let it dry before moving on and painting the next section.  Be careful not to leave the painters tape on the box AFTER the paint dries.  If you let the tape stay on too long, when it comes time to peel it off, the paint will come with it! I painted about 4 coats for each color.

When the paint dried, I used a black marker to draw on the eyes and mouth, a dab of white paint for the eyes, and Kunin Felt  and Scotch Brand Expressive Tape for the adornments.

For the popcorn mix inside the box, I popped some microwave popcorn, threw in some mini candy corn candies, and melted and drizzled some orange colored white chocolate on top! Yummy.

I had so much fun crafting my popcorn box, and I can't wait to use it as a prop for my nephews first Halloween pictures! Check out my other bloggy friends and their up cycled popcorn boxes in the links below!  AND search the hashtag #popcornboxparty2015 on Instagram as well!

  2. While this place gets a little crowded and you might have to push through occasionally, it's hard not to mention that a definite plus in this event space NYC is that you'll rarely have to wait on line in their large bathrooms.
