Drive In Movie Plush Set DIY

We’ve been having fun making little plush toys lately. This little plush set is inspired by drive-in movie concession treats. There’s a salted pretzel, corn dog and popping pop corn! We created this set to be more for decor purposes.

Remember that if you are planning to create any plush for small children to play with keep in the mind any small beads or wires in your design plans; use other materials if you want your plush to be small-child friendly.

Steps to make a Felt Popcorn Box

  1. Cut out four white rectangles and eight red strips.
  2. Sew two strips onto each rectangle, creating stripes. Then, sew the rectangles together, forming a box.
  3. Cut out and sew on a square base.
  4. Take another square piece of felt the same size as the base and sew small wads of yellow and white felt in clusters for the popcorn.
  5. Once the topper is completely covered, stuff the box full of poly fill and hand sew the popcorn on top.
  6. Last, take wire and hot glue wads of felt onto the ends and glue the other end onto the box.
