Mummy Halloween Treat Can

Hi!  This is Jennifer Ingle of Just Jingle and I’m super excited to share this fun Halloween project with you!  I am going to show you how to use an empty tin can to create a fabulous little Halloween goodie!!!

To begin, remove any labels from your can and wash thoroughly.  Cut a wide strip of the Scor-tape and adhere to the can.  You can do this on one side or two, whatever you are most comfortable with.

Next, carefully wrap twill around the can being sure not to be too straight and perfect, as the idea is to make it look like a cute mummy.  Once you have the can covered, you can add a couple of strips to intentionally go criss-cross, adhering with bits of Scor-Tape.

Using bits of Scor-Tape adhere the googly eyes to the front of the can.

Fill a plastic bag with candy corn and place in the tin can.  Tie the top with grosgrain ribbon.

Now you have an adorable treat to give to a friend, teacher, family member, or to use to Boo! Someone in your neighborhood or office!  Have fun!
