DIY Halloween Souvenir Box – Boo, Spook, Eek

Get read for Halloween party? I thought that party souvenir box from re-purposing tissue core could be a great addition to Halloween party. This is a very easy diy Halloween project, it can be great for fast preparation of a Halloween party.  So, I made some souvenir boxes with three different look and three different Halloween phrases. Cat for eek, bat for boo, owl for spook.

You can put some treats or small Halloween souvenir inside the souvenir box for each guest to bring home. Kids would love it. I made the owl, cat and bat in a cute look so it wouldn’t look too scary for kids.

So what do you need to make Halloween souvenir box :

  • Tissue cores
  • black paint
  • white paint
  • orange paint (vermilion)
  • paint brush


That’s all? Yes, that’s all you need, basically just tissue cores and some paints. And I only used three colors; black, white and orange; colors of Halloween. But how to make the boo, spook and eek souvenir boxes?

  1. Prepare tissue cores and paint it with black. Let it dry. It’s okay to, If you wanted to wrap it with black color paper.
  2. Fold both sides in a way until it become a shape of a box.
