Halloween Pop Box Gift

So excited to welcome Kristyn today as part of our Fall Festival!  Kristyn is sharing an awesome tutorial for these DIY Halloween Candy Bottles and gift box.

Hi there Idea Room readers!! It’s Kristyn from Lil’ Luna! I’m so thrilled to be here today. I admire Amy so much, and look up to her not only as a blogger, but also as a friend and mother. The girl is amazing and so talented, so was I ecstatic when she asked for me to guest post today.

As I think about cooler weather and Fall, I can’t help but think of Halloween. It’s one of my favorite holidays, and our family has made some super fun traditions for that holiday. Although gift giving is associated more with Christmas, our family has actually tried serving and doing nice things for others all year round, and even around Halloween. People can always use a pick me up, right? So, this year I decided to come up with a super cute Halloween Pop Box Gift. I’ve made them in the past for Valentines, Christmas and Birthday, and they’ve alwas been a hit. Why not a Halloween version?! It can be given to your child’s teacher or just to a family who needs some extra cheer. It’s even great for the hubby!! This gift is easy and perfect for anyone.

4. Cut out all your printables.

5. From there you will cut out 6 pieces of scrapbook paper. I made mine about 3 inches by 9 inches. Wrap and tape around pop bottles. Add your pop bottles circles to the front of your bottles with tape or glue.

6. From there I added some ric rac and ribbon around the tops of the bottles. I also added the pumpkin heads to the tops of the bottles. Add your bottles back to the box and be sure to add your front printable to the box that says “No Tricks, Just Treats”. Now you have super cute and easy Halloween Gift to give to anyone.

    How did you get the caps back on? I’ve seen crafts like this before, but there is no way that I know of to get those caps back on. (I use the Starbucks frappacino bottles instead for that reason.)

      If you carefully twist the caps off with a rag and pliers you can get them off undamaged which will allow you to be able to put them back on.
