Creepy Candy Containers

Steps:5
It's Halloween, and patches are full of pumpkins just waiting to provide spine-tingling thrills on the big fright night. Carving them into jack-o'-lanterns is always fun, but transform a few into candy holders with looks that could chill, and they can play a crucial role as keepers of the goodies.
Materials
  • Large carvable synthetic pumpkin (it's reusable)
  • A pumpkin-carving saw
  • A marker
  • Two paper-towel tubes
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Plastic eyeball
  • Plastic nose (we cut ours from an eyeglass-and-moustache set)
  • Paintbrush
  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Red construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Eye patch (we made ours from cardboard and black felt)
  • Ball-head straight pins
