Halloween Treat Containers

A few weeks ago I was at my mom's house and she had a Crystal Lite container in her recycle bin.  I thought, "hmmm, I could probably do something with that" - so I took it!  Then she saved me a few more and this past week I finally decided to 'do' something with them.


Yup - I made some mummies to put Halloween candy in!  We really don't get kids except for my neighbors so for the past few years, I've made them special things for Halloween.  This project was very easy!

I actually took computer paper and ripped it into strips, then inked the edges.  Once I had a whole bunch, I started gluing them to the container.  I took some toothpicks and threaded the banner through them and added the ribbon and google eyes.  Since I only had small google eyes - I decided to give the mummies some eyelashes too!

Hope you like them!


Thanks for your visit!

Hi Maria,
You seem to be up rather early, isn't it?
These creations are FANTASTIC and wonderful that you recycled. Love the bandaged mummies with their googly eyes and lovely hand drawn eyelashes. The kids will love them as well.

Oh my goodness, those are adorable! What a great idea. I think I have some of those containers in my pantry, I may have to borrow this idea. I have too many trick or treaters to give them out like that, but I have a couple of coworkers that I like to make things for.
