Decorated Halloween Candy Tin

Halloween Candy Tin

What could be more fun than decorating some candy and a tin for Halloween? I had this tin with the clear window on top in my “stash” but if you couldn’t find an exact match, I’m sure any tin or container would do. I have always loved these tins because they make sure cute, quick and easy gifts to make up in minutes for someone. Of course you could use different types of candy or other contents in the tin, but this is just to give you some ideas!  I used Hershey Nuggets for my candy and wrapped each one with a 1″ x 3″ strip of designer series paper. You just want to be sure when using adhesive and candy that you don’t let the adhesive make contact with the candy. I just used a Mini Glue Dot to secure the strip of paper to itself so it is not attached to the candy piece.

To decorate the tin, I just took a strip of designer paper and wrapped it around the tin for a bellyband. You could also layer it on a strip of card stock if you wanted. For the flower on top, just use one of the flower punches to punch about three or more flowers or even one of the scallop punches. Crinkle up each layer of the flower if you like that look, then reopen and layer one on top of the other.  Secure in the center with a brad of some sort (looks like I used a retired one!). Adhere to the bellyband with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Mini Glue Dots.

The Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper was used in this project. My friend I gave this gift to really liked the little skulls on the paper!
