    • Frankenstein Face Candy Jar

      Fashion a frightening face from cardstock cutouts and attach to a clear glass jar. Add silver corks (available at crafts stores) to either side of the jar to mimic the iconic Halloween character.

    • Spiderweb Candy Tin

      Make a spooky candy catch-all in just a few simple steps. Peel the label from an empty, dry paint can (or purchase a new can at home supply or crafts stores). Coat the can with several light applications of orange spray paint. Once the paint is dry, draw a web pattern on the can with a black permanent marker, and glue on a fuzzy black spider.

    • Easy Paper Treat Bags

      These Halloween treat containers are easy to put together -- embellish a few crafts store paper bags with Halloween-theme stickers, ribbon, and patterned-paper cutouts. Done!

    • Mummified Candy Tub

      Kids will love toting their Halloween candy in this repurposed ice cream container. Rinse and dry an empty 1-gallon ice cream carton. Wrap the outside of the bucket with 4-inch strips of cheesecloth, adhering in place using crafts glue. Adhere large googly eyes to the front.

    • Stylish Black-and-White Treat Tin

      This elegant Halloween treat container is perfect for candy-hunting adults or as a mantel decoration to collect candies. Wrap a paint can or tin with a collage of seasonal scrapbook papers, adhering in place using glue. Line the top of the can with decorative tinsel trim, and add a chenile stem for the handle. Make a banner by printing a Halloween message on cardstock and trimming the edges. Glue a tissue paper circle to the center of the tin, add a glittery star, and top with your banner to finish the look.

    • Skull-and-Crossbones Treat Cup

      Fill a spooky skull cup with candy or a snack mix to scare up some fun at a Halloween party. Glue cardstock or foam shapes to a plain white paper cup, using heart shapes for the nose and bone ends. Attach a bow to the rim of the cup for no-fuss party presentation and fill with Halloween treats.

    • Friendly Spider Treat Bag

      Use no-fray felt to whip up a quick and easy treat bag. Add a scurrying spider to the front with felt, thread, and googly eyes.
