Last Minute Halloween Sweet Treats

Nothing like last minute!  Here are two really easy last minute ideas for a quick but cute Halloween teacher gift and a quick and cute classroom treat idea.

I've had these clear "paint cans" sitting around my craft room for a while.  I seem to "collect" things and then don't want to use them because I'm saving them for that perfect craft/gift idea.  After coming across the same paint cans (albeit a little smaller) at Target in the dollar section, I decided I can start to use mine :)  I decided to use them for a little Halloween gift for the kids' teachers.

First, I made a 3" scallop punch and a 2" scallop punch and then shellacked it on the cover.  I added a little "bling" for a little extra touch. 

Then, using my Silhouette, I cut out "boo" and added it to the front of the paint can.  Here they are unfilled:

I made a label for each paint can.  This one says, "Thank you for being so sweet!  No tricks, just treats!  Lots of kisses, Grace" 

I filled the paint can with a package of Hershey kisses.

 For a Halloween classroom treat, my mom came across this idea for Halloween "S'mores."  All you need are mini-Hershey bars, Halloween ghost peeps and graham crackers.  I found the bags at Hobby Lobby - much easier than printing my own bag toppers and cutting all the paper myself!  And, they were pretty inexpensive.  I then printed tags that said, "S'more Ghostly Hugs" and used my 2" scallop punch to cut them out.  I glued the tags to the bag toppers and presto - cute treats!

I hope you and your family have a safe, fun and happy Halloween!
