Juice Box Mummies

Who is ready for Halloween?

I am really getting into the mood with all of the
party inspiration that I am seeing everywhere!

How about these little cuties?

Mummy wrapped juice boxes!

Just wrap up those boxes with white electrical tape
or cheese cloth would work at well.
Add some adhesive backed googly eyes
to the front and poke a hole in the top for the straw!
What a fun idea to serve at a child's
Halloween party or a fun surprise for their lunch boxes!

I am doing this one for sure!!

  3. These are made with white electrical tape but, cheese cloth would work as well!

  5. Eeek! That is too adorable! Another thought instead of cheesecloth could be using First Aid gauze bandages...they have the perfect color and texture while also having an adhesive backing! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. How would you attach the cheese cloth?

  7. I just tried cheesecloth and it was not easy. I tried craft glue. The cheesecloth did not stick well and I had to use several layers to look right. I stopped after a few. I am using white duct tape I found at the craft store.

  8. I have made them both ways. With the cheese cloth I used hot glue.

  9. I used athletic (the fabric kind) tape and it wasn't as opaque as I would have liked. Still turned out super cute though:)

  10. I used first aid tape and large juice tetra packs (instead of all those little ones to recycle) for my son's school party. They turned out great! Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. I'm going to do this with solo cups for my adult beverages at our Halloween party!

  13. Another idea would be to use hot glue and inexpensive crepe paper on a roll (usually in the dollar store). Taking that a step further, you could make a jack-o-lantern using orange crepe paper and cut out shapes for the face from black duct tape. For the stem, you could glue on a wrapped gummy type of candy, like a green leaf. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for inspiring me. So far, I have only made the juice box robots to sell (they have google eyes, tootsie rolls and two other types of candy attached and the kids love them)

  16. Thank you for the idea. This is great! I was wondering if I make these the night before, how do these fair in the refrigerator so the kids can enjoy cold?

    1. I am really not sure. I just have only tried it at room temp! That is a great question. I would think they would be ok. When they start to sweat it might come undone though. I am going to have to test that out! I would love to know what you came up with too!

    2. This is really weird but I have a tupperware-type container that has a hole in the lid. So we duct-taped over it and it's gone in the fridge-fine and can be washed without the duct-tape coming off.

  17. I made these with white duct tape. You could read the boxes through it. I put them in the fridge before the party then had them in a bucket with a little ice during the party and it held up well. I chose the duct tape for this reason, but I think the other ideas might actually look better! All in all the kids enjoyed them at our party!!
