Santa Clause Juicy Juice Box Recycled DIY Puppet
Easy to create Santa puppet!
Christmas is my favorite time of year to decorate. I love the Christmas lights, sounds, music, movies… I’m pretty sure there isn’t anything about Christmas I don’t like. There is nothing like the lights of a Christmas tree to make you feel relaxed and happy. Once November strikes I begin to prepare for the season. I am one of those who like to decorate early and keep it up late. I put a lot of effort into these beautiful decorations and I want to enjoy them for as long as possible. I am not alone… according to a new survey from Juicy Juice and ORC International, 90% of parents plan to decorate for the holidays! We all may be on different festive levels but we all share this wonderful tradition together. It isn’t a competition to see who can have the most lights, it’s about sharing together the traditions and seasonal cheer. That is what makes decorating so special to me.
In the sense of that seasonal cheer I made a special craft for you. We are going to be recycling Juicy Juice box into a Christmas decoration that will be sure to make someone smile!
What you need:
- Juice Juice Box
- Tape or Glue
- Paint or crayons
- Popsicle stick
We will be using Juicy Juice boxes for a few different reasons. They are the perfect size, we have a ton of them because the kids drink it often, and the box is sturdy and works well for the craft. We like Juicy Juice because it’s 100% juice and is perfect for a Christmas snack by the tree or just a snack anytime.
First thing you need to do is cut the top and bottom off your box to make the chimney. Wash and dry the inside out. The printed pdf comes with the brick pattern and a ledge. Paint or color the bricks red (or whatever color they want them to be, my daughter happens to like pink). Wrap the bricks around the box first and then wrap the ledge. Tape or glue them together.
Next is the puppet. Color your Santa puppet any color like. Cut out the pieces. Use split pins or glue to connect Santa’s arms and legs together. Tape a popsicle stick onto Santa’s back. Now he is ready to pop into the chimney.
