Candy Catchall Tins

Contain your Halloween treats in our clever candy tins. The see-through lids ensure you'll tantalize every guest's sweet tooth!

Supplies (to make one tin each with a pumpkin, a ghost, and a bat motif)

  • 2 sheets coated paper palette
  • Plaid Gallery Glass Window Color: Amber AR (16020)), Amethyst AT (16014), Charcoal Black CB (16018), Lime Green LG (16035), Orange Poppy OP (16005), and Snow White SW (16002)
  • Palette knife
  • Craft knife or scissors
  • Three 2-inch-diameter favor tins with lids
  • 1/4-inch hole punch
  • Extra-fine black marker
  • Small candies
  • 16-inch length of 1/8-inch-wide ribbon for each tin

Instructions

  1. Freehand-draw the pumpkin, ghost, and bat shapes onto the paper side of a sheet of paper palette, leaving about 2 inches between the shapes. You can also click on Enlarge Image, above, and trace the outline from the lids shown here.
  2. On the coated side of each shape, squeeze about a 2-inch-diameter amount of Window Color, using OP for the pumpkin, SW for the ghost, and CB for the bat.
  3. Use a palette knife to lightly spread the paint, creating a smooth coating over the shapes. Use a smaller amount of LG for the pumpkin stem.
  4. On a separate sheet of palette paper, spread 2-inch-diameter amounts each of AR, AT, and LG.
  5. Set both sheets aside for approximately 6 to 8 hours or until thoroughly dry.
  6. Cut out the shapes on the traced lines with a craft knife or scissors, remove the paper, and center each shape on a lid.
  7. Use the hole punch to make circles of AR, AT, and LG. Apply AR circles around the pumpkin, LG circles around the ghost, and AT circles around the bat.
  8. Carefully trim the circles to use small pieces along the edges of the lids and next to the shapes. If a darker color is desired, double-layer the shapes and circles.
  9. Referring to the lids, use a black marker to add the section lines to the pumpkin and the facial details to the bat and ghost.
  10. Fill the tins with candy. Wrap a length of ribbon around each tin and tie in a small bow.
