These pill bottle pumpkins make perfect little treat holders! They make great gifts or party favors.
- pill bottles
- green acrylic paint
- paint brush
- clear coat spray, optional
- chenille sticks (green)
- black duct tape
- craft knife
- cutting mat
- Thoroughly wash and dry the bottles and lids.
- Remove the lids and paint them with green acrylic paint. Allow to dry. Then add additional layers of paint as needed. Tip: To prevent the paint from peeling off you can spray the lids with clear coat.
- Place a piece of duct tape to the cutting mat and use a craft knife to cut out a Jack-o-lantern face. Then carefully peel away the excess tape. Stick the face to the pill bottle.
- Wrap a chenille stick around the neck of the bottle and twist to hold it in place. Then wrap the ends around a pen to curl the chenille stick.
- Fill with candy corn or your favorite candy. Enjoy!

Places that assist the homeless will gladly take pill bottles. They use them for shampoo, soap, lotion etc.
I have taken over 100 of them there and they seem very grateful for them. They also have a need for plastic grocery bags. Hope this is helpful.
