Juice Box Craft: Mini Baseball Caps

so adorable - make miniature baseball hats out of juice boxes

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

Isn’t this juice box craft adorable? Imagine a party with these little baseball caps set out all over the place as decorations.


A little back story: poor Some Boy has not been feeling good. He’s been teething up a storm (all that drool is a result of his molars coming in) AND he’s had an ear infection. He loves the furry little characters from Monsters, Inc. and has been excited to see them all over the place lately with the release of Monsters University. I picked up some of his favorite snacks and character gear because he was being such a good boy in spite of feeling so crappy.

An Easy Juice Box Craft

You’ll need:
Fruit juice boxes
Glue stick
Spray paint
Clear spray gloss

I’ve been having Some Boy drink these Juicy Juice Fruitifuls while he’s been sick because they’re a healthy drink offering lots of natural nutrition with 35% less sugar than regular fruit juice.

I measured a line all the way around the box 1 1/4″ down from the top with a 1 1/4″ flap for the bill of the hat.

Cut all the way around the line to separate the hat shape from the rest of the box.

Do you see where we’re going with this?

Spray paint your little juice box craft hat whatever color you’d like it to be.

I did a Google search for the Monsters University logo and pasted it into a Word doc in various sizes, printing and cutting out the size that looked like it would fit best on the hat.

A little bit of glue and a coat of clear spray gloss, and my hat was good to go!

I went ahead and rolled the corners of the hat against a table so they were round like a real baseball cap.

Mike Wazowski seemed to appreciate the effort.

This was such a fun way to reuse packaging that we have around the house. Plus, I entered the Juicy Juice Monster-Sized Sweepstakes by redeeming a code from the boxes I used for my juice box craft. You can enter for the chance to win cool stuff like posters, music, digital books or the GRAND prize of a $5,000 cash studios and a family trip to Pixar Studios!

Do you have any favorite juice box crafts?

  14. I’m dying over the little caps. I’m convinced electronics hate me. I’ve owned 3 printers in the past 3 years and they all die. I can never make cute crafts, therefore I cannot aspire to be as awesome as you are. And HOLY drool! He’s like a St. Bernard! :)
