It's a Monster Bash! One of my favorite Halloween themes is monsters. They are not too scary and can be colorful and fun! This year I am trying to get creative with trick or treat stations and ways in which trick or treaters can grab their own candy! In addition to trick or treat I am making my Halloween Egg Hunt Monster themed this year so I am I wanted to make something that could work for both.
I took some old shipping boxes, Rust-Oleum Imagine Spray Paint, pom poms, googley eyes and pipe cleaners and cardstock and created 3 fun Monster trick or treat boxes.
- Rust-Oleum Imagine Spray Paint in Azalea Pink and Neon Orange
- Rust-Oleum Imagine Chalkboard Spray Paint in Black
- Cardboard Boxes
- Craft Knife
- Pom Poms
- Pipe Cleaners
- Hot Glue
- Chalk Pen
- Halloween Ribbon
- 8x10" Canvas Panel
- Washi Tape
- Draw mouths on the boxes and cut out with a craft knife. Make the openings large enough for a child's hand to fit through and grab candy.
- Take the boxes and the canvas panel outside to spray paint. Before getting started make sure to read the safety instructions and shake the cans really well.
- Holding the paint can about 8-12 inches from the box spray with sweeping motions. I sprayed each box a different color. I sprayed the canvas panel with the Chalkboard Spray Paint. Depending on the color of the box you might need 2 coats. Let each coat dry before applying a second.
- Once the boxes are dry bring them back inside and turn them into monsters with googley eyes, pom poms and pipe cleaners.
- To make the chalkboard sign, I created an image on Canva.com and printed it.
- Using a piece of chalk I colored all over the back of the image, making sure to completely cover the image with chalk. You can shake off the excess dust.
- Place the design face side up in the center of the canvas panel. Use the washi tape to hold it in place.
- Trace the letters with a pencil applying light pressure.
- Once you are done remove the tape and design and you will see the chalk transferred the design to the canvas.
- Trace over the chalk with chalk marker. Let it dry. Once dry, shake off the dust.
- Add ribbon to spice up the canvas.
My daughter got to play Halloween a little early and she loved the Monster Trick or Treat Boxes! I love how easy they were to make and decorate with Rust-Oleum Imagine Spray Paints!
