Pumpkin in Favour of holders Treat for an autumn-Remmidemmi
This pumpkin favor treat holders are a simple children’ fall or Halloween crafts – and the best part is, adding the surprise is inside when you are done!
I’m a fool for the fall. It’s my favorite season of the year, and for so many reasons. The cool weather, the pumpkin treats . . . the Halloween holiday. I also like acorns. Deer and deer. And brown and orange.
And pretty much any kind of icon remind that someone would fall.
If it’in relation to s the autumn, I love it. All other lovers are?
I had some pumpkin treat container sitting in my stash from last year, and I decided that it was time for Mod smorgasbord of them. As I thought about what I wanted to do, I realized I had it easy, children’ fall crafts right in front of me.
These are perfect for party favors or to give as a gift – who wouldn’t want to be a pumpkin filled with candy? And one that sparkles? To treat here’s how these vessels were made.

Collect These Supplies
papier mache pumpkin treat containers
Mod hodgepodge rivets for children
Mod hotchpotch of Sparkle (optional)
Apple Barrel acrylic paint – pumpkin or Black (for the face details), White
Tissue paper – Orange and green
These were started for the treatment of containers I have. I think they were from the Martha Stewart Halloween line last year. Luckily, there are always fun Halloween shapes in the craft store, this time of the year.
Paint your pumpkin treat containers with White. I've been inside both and outside and then let it dry.
Cut the tissue paper into many small squares – both the orange and the green. They begin to cover each pumpkin with tissue paper. Paint a medium layer of Mod-hodgepodge-leaching on the pumpkin, add tissue paper and then Mod smorgasbord of over the top.
Keep adding tissue paper until the entire pumpkin is covered (with green for the stem). Let it air dry. It’s no need to Mod smorgasbord of the inside of the container (and you wouldn’t want to, if you put unwrapped candy in it).
Paint the details on the pumpkin face with either pumpkin or Black color, depending on how authentic you want to look for your jack o’ - lantern. I didn’t want to go crazy . . . just a little subtle. Optional step: add Mod hodgepodge of Glitter over the top for some Halloween bling!
And that’s it! You see how fast that was? She blinked and I was done. One thing I noticed is that my stem has faded a little from their original green . . . but the color in the picture is also fine.
I think I used OLD tissue paper. But hey, I love who you have become. I would like this to fall for my own party (which I started and haven’t even in the organization yet).
you Want to squash more great idea with the Halloween? Walter from these magnets, and they are awesome (the kids love them, too).
