You can find clear, plastic paint cans at almost any craft store. To decorate, all you need to do is cut a piece of paper to the right height, roll it up, and stick it right inside the can. If you want, you can add a piece of tape to keep it secure. I added a little word tag, some eyeball embellishments, and ribbon to mine, but you can do whatever you want. This one will hit the neighborhood streets with my baby as we take him on his first trick or treat adventure. I think they would be perfect for party favors, too, or as a gift.
I think these owl cupcakes from One Charming Party are ADORABLE. I made these ones for a party I went to last night, and they were seriously the easiest in the world to make. If you're having a kids' party, why not have them decorate them themselves? Check out more pictures and the tutorial at One Charming Party.
