I saw this super cute idea all over pinterest this year and I instantly knew I had to make them for Halloween!! They are SO incredibly easy to make, I love it! This would make a great project to do with kids :)
I'm planning to stuff them with candy-umm duh it's Halloween!!
Here's what you'll need:
First I painted my cans black. You don't have to be terribly particular with this step, since it'll just be covered anyway. It's just for a nice solid base :)
see, TOTALLY not perfect.
Then I measured the crepe paper around the can and tore a bunch of strips of it that length
[NOT toilet paper, I promise!!]
Then I covered the top edge of the can, to cover the brim as shown:
I just wrapped the strips of torn crepe paper around, layering them and adding as I liked. Glue the eyes on and add one more layer of crepe paper over the top and....
I love this project for SOOOOO many reasons! It's so so so simple but yet so adorably cute. It would make a great crafternoon with kiddos!
It totally doesn't have to be perfect because a) uhh...it's a mummy and b) it's gunna be stuffed with candy so no one will even care if it's perfect!
[i love how they're all different!]
And lastly, HI! It cost me literally TWO DOLLARS. Yup count 'em TWO buckaroos. $1 for the crepe paper and $1 for the eyes at the dollar store. I made 25 of these little dudes for 200 pennies, and I even have some leftover supplies for next year :)
What Halloween projects have you been up to? I love this holiday, I can't wait to see the trick-or-treaters tonight!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
