Easily Dress Up a Party Tub for Sinister Halloween Sips
Get your boo(ze) on this Halloween by giving a standard beverage tub a monstrous Halloween makeover, then use it to create a chilling effect by icing down adults'-only sips.
- black beverage tub
- sparkly self-adhesive craft foam (gold, purple, black and red)
- non-sparkly white self-adhesive craft foam
Fold self-adhesive craft foam in half (Image 1). Using scissors, cut out a curved horn shape (Image 2). Tip: Folding the foam in half before cutting creates a double-sided horn with two sides that mirror each other. Remove paper backing from one side, leaving a small section of paper remaining at the base that you'll remove later when attaching the horns to the beverage tub (Image 3). Press both sides together (Image 4). Repeat these steps, using the first horn as a template, to create a second double-sided horn.
Fold gold self-adhesive craft foam in half and cut out an almond shape, similar to cat's eyes. Create pupils by folding black self-adhesive craft foam in half and cutting out two narrow slits. Remove the pupil's paper backing and join the pieces of craft foam together.
Create Mouth and Fangs
Using scissors, cut a wide crescent-moon shape out of red self-adhesive craft foam. Then, cut a few triangles out of white self-adhesive craft foam to resemble fangs. Remove the paper backing the fangs and attach to the red mouth.
Remove the remaining bit of paper at the base of the horns and attach to either side of the beverage tub.
Attach Facial Features
Decide which side will be the front and visually find the tub's center. Remove the paper backing and attach the monster's eyes and mouth.
Fill With Sinister Sips
If kids will be in attendance, place the adults' only party tub up out of reach and fill with assorted bottled beer, hard cider, wine and canned cocktails. Place a bottle opener nearby so your guests can help themselves (Image 1). Don't leave your littlest guests out of the fun, follow the steps below to also craft a kid-friendly beverage tub (Image 2) that you can place on the ground within easy reach of little monsters.
