Halloween Paint Can

Here is the first Paint Can I have ever decorated. I decided to do a Halloween one and give it to my Mom. I was inspired by a post on the CMB. Here is my version.

I used paper from the Debbie Mumm Harvest & Holiday stack. The punches are from Martha Stewart-drippy goo and spider web. The ribbon is all from M's.
It's nothing fancy, but it's my first try and it was very easy and fun!

That looks great. I am getting so many ideas of different crafts to make. What other things can this be used for?

BTW I found you on the CMB board..

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You can use these cans for so much. I have seen them decorated with a name to hold hairclips/bows, toys, etc. or decorated for a baby shower full of goodies. They are great for teachers to hold class treats. They also make a smaller quart size pail that is great to hold a gift card for gift giving.

I just ordered a bunch of the quart size to make goodies for Xmas. Homemade chocolate chip cookies or brownie bites will fit in them perfectly!

Oriental Trading Company has the quart size 6 for $9.99. I also put some coupon codes in a thread on the CMB!
