Trolls Poppy Valentine’s Day Box

With all the hype around Trolls right now, I thought it would be a great idea for a Valentine’s Day Box.  So I decided to make Poppy.  What little girl right now wouldn’t love a Poppy Valentine’s Day Box. This box was a lot of fun to make.  It is a little time consuming but I think the outcome was great.

What you need:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Construction paper (blue, pink, black, green and any other color you need for your stand)
  • Scissors
  • 5” foam ball
  • Pink paint (I used acrylic)
  • An old shoe box
  • Googly eyes
  • Foam brush
  • Pencil, pen, or marker
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Ruler
  • 2 paper towel rolls
  • Tissue paper (pink and white)
  • Pipe cleaners

What to do:

  1. Place a stick of some kind into the foam ball (I used a shish kabob stick) and paint. I used 2 coats.  Let dry overnight.
  2. Tape lid onto a shoe box.
  3. Poke holes into the box for the head (finding the center on the top), arms, and legs.
  4. Cut one paper towel roll into 2 14cm pieces. Cut the other into 2 13cm pieces and 1 2cm piece.
  5. Cut slight angles at the top of one end of the 2 13 cm pieces.
  6. Trace and cut out 5 circles onto construction paper using one of the paper towel rolls.
  7. Tape the circles onto the tops of the paper towel rolls. Tape onto the slanted end of the 13cm pieces.
  8. Poke a hole into all of construction paper.
  9. Cover box and paper towel roll pieces in white tissue paper.
  10. Cover all pieces in pink tissue paper.
  11. Find an old box and make a stand to glue your finished box onto. Make sure the stand has a bottom, back, and sides.
  12. Cover and decorate your stand.
  13. Cut a hole in the back of your box for cards and treats. Make sure the hole is big enough to stick your hand in.
  14. Laying your box down hot glue the arms and lets onto the box. Make sure your holes are lined up.
  15. Use your pipe cleaners to make fastens to hold the arms and legs onto the box.
  16. Put two ends of your pipe cleaner fastener through the arm hold from the inside of your box. Once inside use something long to go inside the arm and push the ends down.  Do the same for the other arm and the legs. (I swear this is the most difficult part).
  17. Attach the neck to the top of the box using the hot glue gun. Place the head onto the body (leave the stick attached), and use the hot glue gun to secure.
  18. Cut out the various shapes you will need to make your trolls dress and decorate it.
  19. Glue the dress onto the troll, followed by the dress design.
  20. Cut out hands and feet for the troll.
  21. Glue the feet onto the bottom of the stand and glue the hands onto the arms.
  22. Using the hot glue gun attach the troll’s legs to the feet and the back to the back of the stand.
  23. Using the pink felt cut out the troll’s hair and attach to the head using the hot glue gun.
  24. Use a scrap piece of the felt to cut out the nose. And a black piece of construction paper to cut out the smile and eye lashes.
  25. Using the hot glue gun attach the googly eyes, eye lashes, nose, and smile.
  26. Cut out the pieces for the head band. Glue together and attach to the troll’s hair using the hot glue gun.Pin it:
