This is a recycled coffee can that you could use for your Halloween candy or just for a decoration.



Cut a paper pattern the size of the sides of the coffee can. Lay this on the canvas and cut out allowing for about a 1 inch overlap on all sides.

Paint your "pumpkin" on the canvas. Add leaves and curly vines.

Spread glue over the entire can. Lay the canvas piece on the can and press down to stick. Overlap the ends on top of each other. Apply glue about an inch down on the inside lip. Fold the top over into the inside of the can. Spread glue on the bottom of the can about an inch from the outside edge. Press the edges of the canvas onto the bottom of the can.


Optional: Wrap a piece of the wire around the outside edge of the top of the can. Twist to secure.

Working from the inside, punch two holes on each side of the can with the metal punch or a nail. This is easier if you lay the can on a piece of wood. You'll want these holes on top of each other about 1/2 inches apart.

Cut a piece of wire about 24 inches long. Find the middle and wrap coils around a pencil. Remove pencil.

Working from the outside, feed one end of the wire through one of the top holes and feeding it back out to the outside through the bottom hole. Using pliers, bend the loop together to close. Repeat on other side.

Tie raffia onto wire.

Tear tissue paper into chunks and glue to inside of can until fully covered.

Cut a piece of black felt and glue to bottom of can.

  • 2 glass bottles such as beer or soda, no plastic
  • black spray paint
  • acrylic paint
  • ribbon
  • candles


Spray paint bottles, you may need 2 coats, let dry completely. Paint on your halloween picture, paint anything you want, let dry. Tie ribbon on, put candles in.


It's that simple!

Using assorted empty jars, create a spooky candy storage system. Spray paint jars layering paints to create a spooky effect (dripping blood, candy corn, pumpkin orange, cloudy night, etc). Use your computer and the "chiller" font to print labels on plain white paper. Adhere them to colorful scrapbooking papers and attach to the jars. Fill with your favorite treats and arrange with other Halloween goodies (I have a fake brain, assorted bones, spiders and webbing and bats rounding out my display).


Let your imagination run wild and have fun!

Dress up as a mad scientist and offer these treats to your Halloween visitors for some extra fun!
