Day 15 of Halloween Projects: Paint Can Treat Pails and Monster Munch Printable (at bottom of post)

For Day 15, I have some paintcan treat pails to share with you.  These are all made from brand new unused paint cans so that they will be safe to use for the candy.  The bases of the cans are spray painted and then all of the details are painted on them by hand.

You can also use the small paint cans that you can also purchase at Lowes to make mini tins.  Here is a picture of the regular size Frank and the mini Frank so you can see the size difference.

The larger Frankenstein in this picture has a tag on him because he was used as a gift for Kaylee's teacher.  It is a tag for Monster Munch and then the bucket was filled with candy for the teacher to enjoy and share with the kids in her class.  The tag says:  "We hear you are good with Monsters, a nice and patient teacher, so here is a little monster munch from one of your little creatures" This tag was computer generated and I hand cut a background for it.  You can find a printable version of the tag I used below.  Just click on the picture to enlarge it and then you can print the saying to use for your own Monster Munch Project.
