Trick or Treat Cans

I have formula cans laying around again - I saved them to see if I could come up with something cute and crafty. Here is what two of them turned in to:

Trick or Treat buckets for Ben and Jake. 

Aaron says they are too small and won't hold enough candy, but seriously do a 2 and 4 year old need more candy then these will hold?  Anyway, this was super easy thing to do.  I just ripped off the label, mod podged halloween paper on the can, cut out some cute letters with the cricut, drilled holes for the wire handle, added some ribbon and a cute jack-o-lantern button, and waa-laa -   Finished!  Ben and Jake love them and wish I would give them to them now, but I don't want them destroyed - did I mention they were 2 and 4 year old boys - before Halloween.  I didn't make one for Kaden this year because he's only 7 months old and has no teeth - how is he supposed to eat candy like that?!


  1. Cute! I love covering cans. I just did a whole bunch of veggie cans with Halloween paper. I have the can opener that doesn't make sharp edges, so the lids pop right back on. We are filling them with treats to take to friends!

  2. Cute idea! I'll have to make a couple before Halloween!
