Here’s a Halloween treat holder I made a couple of years ago and it was so popular I thought I would post the photo again. It’s the Halloween Witch’s Boot Candy Treat Holder! I saw the idea online and had no directions, but I just figured it out on my own. I thought it was such a cute idea and we all have those empty toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls around the house frequently. (Personally I think I’d rather use a paper towel roll!)
I wrapped Rich Razzleberry card stock around the roll, adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Before I tried wrapping the roll I pulled the cardstock over the edge of my kitchen table a few times, which has a rounded edge, just to break up the fibers a little bit and make it easier to roll. You could use a bone folder or just anything rounded to get the paper to “relax”. For the sock stripes, you can use Pumpkin Pie 1/2″ strips of card stock. For the top of the boot, I just wrapped around a piece of Basic Black and folded back the corners. The buckle is a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (you could use any color Glimmer Paper) with a small square piece of Basic Black right in the center which makes it look like a buckle without having to actually MAKE a buckle! The “shoe” part is easy to make. Measure the roll diameter and then make the black paper slightly wider. Cut it at a diagonal as you see, Put glue on the bottom of the roll and stick it on the black card stock. When the glue is dry, you can trim off the excess in the back. Roll up the toe a little bit. There you have it! Put a little treat inside the boot.
This could be a little Halloween gift for someone, or a table decoration or party favor. Have fun making your Halloween Witch’s Boot Candy Treat Holder!
