Each year, the fabulous Laura Kelly hosts a Halloween Popcorn Box Party and this year I'm playing along! The participants received a popcorn box, felt, and other supplies from the sponsors. Our only instruction was to decorate the box for Halloween. I created a clown costume for my popcorn box. It was so much fun!

Be sure to read all the way to the end of my post for a chance to win some fabulous prizes!


Clown Popcorn Box



  1. Cut the white felt to size and wrap it around the popcorn box.
  2. Use the blue felt to make diamonds; glue them to the backs of the googly eyes and then glue them near the top of the box. 
  3. Glue the pom pom directly below the eyes.
  4. Cut a mouth and cheeks from the red felt and glue them directly below the nose.
  5. Cut two triangles and a circle from yellow felt. Assemble them to make the clown's bow tie and glue it in place. 
  6. Pop the popcorn. Place each color of candy melts in a separate bowl and melt them, following the package instructions. Pour popcorn into the melted coating and stir. Spread the popcorn onto parchment paper to dry.
  7. Fill the popcorn box with popcorn. When you reach the top, arrange the colors so that blue is on the outside, then green, then yellow, then orange, then red.
