Pumpkin Candy Containers

Pumpkin Candy Containers

Our American lives are steeped in traditions, some have lost their meaning long ago and we often have no idea where the traditions originated. This does not stop us from loving these holiday icons. They link us to our childhood memories, like candy filled plastic pumpkins with those toothy grins. Like most of you I have an absolute love of celebrations! 

My paper pumpkin containers are a step beyond the plastic pumpkin with its uncomfortable sweaty handle { I live in Florida where Halloween is almost always as humid as the 4th of July} These candy containers were cut with the Silhouette and designed by Sweet Afton  I added a paper flower and a twine tied tag with a Halloween sentiment from SRM stickers.

Both containers received a trim of black glass glitter and a bit of vintage lace, at the edge of the lid. Like I said a little prettier than the beloved plastic pail that inspired my version of a candy container

My craftroom is strewn with paperwork from last weeks Biketoberfest in Daytona, not much crafty space available, so I will have to sort all of that so I can sprinkle glitter or make macabre paper bats for our upcoming Halloween party!

I think I will make some soup, watch a fun Halloween movie and try very very hard not to eat the Halloween candy I git to fill these containers! ;)
Make something pretty, or spooky, and have fun!
