Hello! It’s Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts.com. I am so excited to be over here with YOU & the girls from Eighteen25. Usually I am over on my blog sharing fun crafts & DIY projects, recipes & simple kid crafts & party ideas. So it’s a real treat (not a trick!) to be over here! ha! When I think of Halloween crafts two things come to mind. They need to be simple, & they need to be something my kiddos can make with me. That is why I love these cute Tin Can Ghosts. So keep reading, & I’ll show you how I put them together.
You’ll need a few supplies: [affiliate links included]
- tin cans (washed & dried)
- white spray paint
- googly eyes
- this printable
- Halloween paper
- white card stock
- mini hole punch
I friend of mine gave me this handy can opener. It removes the lid without cutting it. So you can put the lid right back on if you’d like. I used it to take off the lids of my cans.
After I washed & dried out the cans & lids I spray painted them white. Let dry.
Then I added a spooky face with googly eyes & a Sharpie.
Next I printed out this printable onto white card stock paper.
Then I cut them out & glued them onto some Halloween paper making some hang tags.
Next I filled my tin can with shred.
Annnnd then I added some candy! 😉
Finally, I punched a hole in the corner of my hang tag,
& then I tie it around my tin can with some twine & a bow.
If you’d like to you can just pop the lid right back on.
This way you don’t have to worry about your candy falling out!
It looks cute either way though! These make a sweet gift to give to a friend, neighbor or teacher. 🙂
Thanks so much for having me over!
