Pumpkin Box for Halloween

Introduction: Pumpkin Box for Halloween

Step 1: You Will Need

An empty tissue box
White paper
Glittery orange paint
Pritt stick glue
Black,green and orange felt tip
Cello tape
A hole puncher
Some strong string

Step 2: Tissue Box

Find an empty tissue box, I used a square one but you could use a different shape one. Then take of the plasticky bit at the rim.

Step 3: The Paper and Paint

Cut the white paper into the sizes of the sides of the box. Next, paint them and leave to dry.

If your paint doesn't come out that glittery, you could try colouring loosely underneath in orange.

Leave these to dry

Step 4: Glue

Glue on the sides to the box with the pritt stick glue, which isn't as strong as PVA. Still cover the bottom side with orange.

If your top side looks scruffy like mine did, you could cut out a green circle to fit round the rim. It would be the green stem of the pumpkin.

Step 5: The Face

Draw on a pumpkin face on one of the sides with the black felt tip.

Step 6: The Handle

Hole punch a hole either side of the hole at the top and thread some strong string through and tie.

Step 7: Finished Enjoy

I added a little white plastic arm to the handle but this is optional, feel free to add anything.

Have fun trick or treating with your new pumpkin sweets holder.

    Ok. I've added some pictures to some of the steps, is it better/ok now?

    I don't really understand what you mean. I think if you read it, it tells you how to make it but it may be easier to understand if it had pictures in it. I'll see if I can get any pictures in it.
