Thank you Juicy Juice for helping us get ready for the holidays. All opinions are my own. #JuicyJuiceCrew
How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Did you get your eat on and then your shop on? I did a lot of eating and a little shopping plus we celebrated Zoe’s 4th birthday (stay tuned for more of her fun filled birthday). You know what else I did? I set up a kids table for Thanksgiving dinner for the first time. Not that we haven’t had kids tables before but I decided to add a little DIY to the table since it was my first time being in charge of the kiddie crew. I used some juicy juice box I saved in my stash to make a juice box vase and napkin ring for the kiddos.
I know I’m not the only one that keeps these to make fun juice box crafts, right? If you haven’t been saving your juice boxes, start now. You can make these craft for any holiday by just changing the sticky tape you use. If you haven’t been saving your juice boxes, start now.

I had to hold myself back in the tape aisle at Michael’s.
Juice Box Crafts: Holiday Vase & Napkin Ring
I used a total of 3 juice boxes. Two for the vases and one cut into 3 pieces for the napkin ring.
Cut off the top of the juice box and then remove then wrap the tape around the slimmer side of the box. There will be a little hang-over which you can stick down to the wider side of the box.
Flip the box and secure another piece of tape around the wider sides. I don’t cut the tape until I’ve gone completely around the box.
Cut the tape while leaving a little excess to secure on the inside of the box. Smooth to finish.
And there you have it.
For the napkin ring, I cut the box into 3 pieces. The top and lower portion of the box makes for the most even pieces without too much cutting but you can use the middle too. My cutting skills are not great (I blame the kids. LOL). Wrap a piece a tape around the napkin ring, smooth and trim and any excess.
I put a little bit of water and fresh flowers in each vase. Put a pine cone at each table setting. The kids painted the pine cones and then added glitter once they were done having dinner.
How cute is this? A mini “grown-up” holiday table for the kids. Juicy Juice box crafts for the win.
P.S. Be sure not to add too much water because curious kids will tip the vases over. Ask me how I know?
Grab your recycled Juicy Juice boxes and get crafting. What juice box crafts are you making for the holidays? I have a few more ideas. Ornaments, anyone?
