Halloween's starting early...

So the most amazing crafter I know, Jen, started my Halloween fever early!
A few months back she posted this:


and I fell in love!

I knew I wanted ot make them or something similar with the kids for Halloween!

So I changed it up a bit to make it my own.

This is what I came up with:

What we used:
oatmeal container
Modge Podge
contstuction paper
toilet paper
Scissors
Ribbon

First I cut stips of toilet paper. Then I covered the container in modge podge. I let the kids help put the strips around the container. I used a paint brush to brush on modge podge since we needed about three layers to cover the entire thing in white (so you couldnt see the red/white/blue oatmeal label)! After two layers we cut out the eye balls. Modge podged them to the front, and then put one more layer of toilet paper on! We finished it off with a black ribbon for a handle!

and there you have it! TRICK OR TREAT candy containers! When they are all filled up they will be YUMMY MUMMYS! :)

Thanks again Jen for the inspiration! The kids loved it and now I can't wait to steal more of your ideas!! :)
