We have these awesome plastic pails from Sierra Pacific Crafts that were just begging to be Halloween favors and loot  totes for trick or treaters.  Here are three really fun and easy ideas.  *Party Tip* Pre-cut the pieces for your favor and put inside the bucket with a glue stick and crayon,and you have an instant favor/craft activity the kids will love!

 First, let's get mummified!

I used some white crepe paper, Aleene's Tacky Glue, black card stock and a 1/4 inch Marvy Uchida circle punch and the  smallest pail we have to create this adorable mummy.  Simply apply glue to the pail and wrap the crepe paper around...I used double sided tape to tape down the ends of the paper....don't try to make it too perfect.  For the eyes..mine happened by accident, but I like them so much I went with it....use your punch to make the circles, take scissors and a roundish shape out of a small part of the circle.

 Next up, Jack-o-Lantern Trick or Treat Tote !
Using two different shades of orange card stock and some fun scissors, I cut strips and simply over lapped them using double sided tape.  I cut out some triangles and a mouth and added some green curling ribbon...Trick or Treat!!!


I love this guy!  You need green card stock, black card stock, 1 inch and 1/4 inch Marvy Uchida circle punch, double sided tape, Aleene's Tacky Glue and two peanut butter cups. First, I measured and cut the green card stock to fit the medium pail.  For the hair, I cut 1 1/2 inch strips out of the black card stock and using scissors, chip into one side of the strip creating a jagged look.  Cut a few strips for the mouth and forehead scar, and assemble using double sided tape and glue.
