Guys we did it! We finished our Boxtroll!
Remember when I showed you a sneak peak of how to make a Boxtroll for The Boxtrolls movie and sweepstakes? We’re so happy to be done, now we can enter the Build A Boxtroll Movie Sweepstakes!
This was such an easy craft, my daughter ended up falling asleep so I know she”s gonna be excited to see it in the morning! We decided to build Sparky, a quiet, yet strong boxtroll who is know for wearing his welding goggles. He has a “nigh voltage” marking on his box, I ended up breaking out markers to try to get all of the detail on the box.
I drew on his goggles, nose, mouth, and facial expressions and cut a little tip of the pipe cleaner to use as his hair. I also ended up trimming the head a bit to fit the box body a little better, then used those scraps to make the ears, taping them on the inside.
