I was asked by our stake Young Women’s camp director from our church to see if I could come up with a cute popcorn vendor tray…to serve popcorn to the young women while up at camp. I was up for the task and began my search to find something that would be sturdy enough to hold lots of bags of popcorn and yet not be too heavy hanging around the neck. This is what I came it with!
I happened to be at Costco checking out and saw a huge stack of these canteloupe boxes and asked if I could have 4 of them. FREE Ka-Ching!
Then I hopped over to Lowes to get some spray paint. I really love Valspar spray paint it covers so nicely. I had some white spray paint in the garage but it was super runny…Valspar wins for me!
I sprayed the boxes on the outsides and tops in red white and blue..I did not spray the insides.
Once you print your images…cut them out and use a glue stick to adhere them to the boxes.
Make sure you get the glue all around the edges otherwise it starts lifting
I was racking my brain to come up with a strap that would be comfortable around the neck and cheap. I was just about to buy some canvas fabric at Walmart when I spotted shelving liner stuff! It is soft, easy to cut and tied onto the boxes perfectly!
It comes in a variety of colors and with the left overs I can line a few drawers!
Even my teenage nephews thought the were so cool and thought I had bought them! So….I would say “Nailed it”! LoL
I can’t wait to see them being used up at camp and I am going to figure out other ways to use them here at home….I see an outdoor movie night in my future! Linking toDIY Show Off Stone Gable BetweenNapsontheporch

What a darling idea, they really came out so cute, and really should be perfect for the job you made them for………and hope they stay nice so you can use them at home somewhere too.
