Altered Halloween Paint Can

Here's another project I have to share with you! You'll want to check out the new K&Company Halloween paper & embellishments Carolyn ordered for the store!


The bright colors and cute characters are so perfect for a whimsical Halloween! I wanted to alter a clear paint can and these papers just screamed to me for the project.

It takes a bit more than 12 inches in length to go around small paint can so make sure you're prepared with plenty of paper. I found that double-sided red sticky tape works great to adhere the paper to the plastic bucket. AND it also holds ribbon in place perfectly!

I know the idea of altering paint cans has been around for a while, but this is the first time I've done one -- and now, I just want to do more! I have so many ideas for packaging up the gifts I send to my girlfriends during the holidays! If you've never altered a paint can (clear or regular), don't wait any longer! I know you'll have fun with this project!

You can see my Trick-or-Treat can on display at The Crafty Scrapper!

very cute. That new K&CO stuff is pretty cute--truly. I'm not even a Halloween person. It will certainly make it easier to recognize you when you are out trick-or-treating! (ha)
