This is one of the small, clear, paint cans you can buy at the craft store. I made this one for my son's teacher and filled it with candy. I used strips of paper to decorate it so that you could still see what's inside.
The bigger version would be cute to "Boo" your neighbors. If you don't know what that is, you anonymously leave a container of treats on your neighbor's porch. If you've got critters about, you might want to ring the doorbell and run so that it isn't sitting out all night! They would then "Boo" another neighbor and each would hang a ghost on their door stating that they had already been "Boo'd". It's a lot of fun when it travels all around the neighborhood. You can find instructions, poems, ghost cut-outs, etc. online.
The papers, stamps, etc. are from Stampin' Up!
