DIY Halloween Pumpkin Candy Treat Box

My son's school is hosting it's first, Trunk-or-Treat, that I am thrilled to be participating. We have slowly been putting our theme together for our decorated trunk, and it is going to be pretty cool! The one thing I was having trouble deciding on was a treat box for the candy. Originally I wanted a cauldron but, of course, I couldn't find one. Then I thought a cute pumpkin bucket AND then the idea hit me, to make my own!

I had a nice cardboard box from a recent delivery that I thought would be the perfect size, and my idea was put into motion.

What you will need:
  • Cardboard box 6 1/2" x 12" (well, this is the size I used because it matched the felt sheets dimensions)
  • 4 sheets orange felt
  • 1 sheet black felt or you could use yellow
  • Spray adhesive
  • scissors
  • pattern for pumpkin face
So basically, this is a very easy project. First, I covered the sides of the box using spray adhesive and some scrap orange felt, I had on hand. Cutting the felt to size, first. Then I covered the front and back in the same manner.

 To make the face, I cheated and used a, pumpkin face pattern, from a pumpkin carving kit we have. I cut the pattern out in black felt and used the spray adhesive to adhere the pumpkin face. And that's it! Fill with candy and done!! Easy peasy!!!


Its so cute! Way to go! Looks so easy!
