Sometimes it’s a few weeks before Halloween and you realize your fall decor is seriously lacking and your candy basket has just consisted of a 99 cent pumpkin bucket you bought for your daughter to play with. Or maybe that’s just in our house! Thankfully, I remembered I was sent a fun little package from Laura at Laura Kelly Designs a few weeks ago and knew just the thing to make.

This is a fun challenge where I’m teaming up with many other bloggers. We were all given a popcorn box from the fabulous World Market and told to just go crazy! Thankfully, my expanding craft
junk supplies had me covered to show you how to make your own Trick or Treat House popcorn box.

How to Make Your Own Trick or Treat Haunted House Box
Here’s how I did it. First, I adhered gold tissue paper to the popcorn box using washi tape. Honestly, glue would have been better but I didn’t feel like waiting for the hot glue gun to heat up and I apparently ran out of adhesive glue. You probably want to grab your scissors and cut your tissue paper to fit perfectly around the box.
Next, cut out your haunted house from black cardstock. I’ve included a free cut file below to get your own haunted house.
Once you have your house, glue or tape it to the box then it’s time to dress up your popcorn box however it fits your space. I hot glued some decorative trim onto the house.
I added the little Trick or Treat words using a fabric leaf I had laying around from some fall decorations. I just put it on my cutting mat and then cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo. If you use the cut file I’ve provided though I included the “trick or treat” directly in the house cut file.
And there you have it! A simple trick or treat haunted house box. Be sure to grab your free cut file below and don’t forget to enter to win the $50 World Market giftcard. Be sure to check out all the other creative crafts done with popcorn boxes.
