Halloween is quickly approaching and my kids especially are getting into the spirit of the holiday. Their costumes are picked out, their trick or treat baskets are ready, and all that was left was to buy some treats! This year, I decided to do something a little different and BOO it Forward. I made a cute mummy Halloween candy jar (perfect for holding treats!) that doubles as Halloween decor!
What you will need:
- mason jar
- white paint (I used chalk paint)
- white tissue paper
- googly eyes
- hot glue gun
If the jar is old, wash it thoroughly. Paint a coat of white paint all over the jar and allow to completely dry. I used two coats on my jar.
Fold the tissue paper into fourths and cut into strips with scissors. Place glue on one end of the tissue paper strip, attach to jar, then add glue to the other end and attach. Keep going until the jar is mostly covered in a haphazard fashion.
Allow the glue to dry. Then add the googly eyes! I tried to add mine somewhat underneath a layer of tissue paper to give it a true mummy effect.
Now it is ready to fill with candy! I purchased the M&M’S®, SNICKERS®, and TWIX® variety bag as well as the Starburst®, Skittles® and Life Savers® variety bag at Walmart. I filled the Mummy Halloween Jar with a variety of each. The varieties of candy make it so easy to BOO someone because there is bound to be something for everyone when you mix and match!
To make this BOO kit a surprise gift, just add an American Greetings® gift bag, tissue paper, and stickers!
I just decorated the gift bag with stickers, wrapped the Mummy Halloween Jar in tissue paper, placed in a bag, added a little more candy just for fun– and then the most important part, the BOO card!
Just go to Booitforward.com to print out one of these cards to attach to your BOO kit so that your recipient has the chance to BOO it Forward as well!
Walmart is a one stop shop for making a fun BOO kit to surprise your friends, kids, or loved ones! From the candy to the packaging, they have it all.
You could even up your game with your BOO kit and add the Ghostbusters® movie, that is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD in stores or online! Look for specially marked stands in-store to find Ghostbusters® on VUDU as well.
