I have heard of the fun Halloween tradition of “Booing” your neighbors, but I never got things together early enough to do it. Well not this year! This year we are going to join in on the fun and surprise our neighbors with Ghost Candy Jars filled with yummy treats.
I had several bottles left over from the milk print cow bottles I made for the twins Barnyard Bash birthday party and I wanted to put them to use. This project is incredibly easy, here is how I did it:
First collect your bottles. I used the Starbucks frappuccino bottles which you can find at the grocery store. Remove the stickers and all the sticky labels.
Next spray paint the bottles white. I turned mine upside down so spray paint wouldn’t get inside and painted the lids separately. When I made the cow bottles I left the lids on in an effort to save time and it was a disaster. I had to pry the lids off and ruined several of them…learn from my mistake and take the lids off!
Next, I used my Cricut to design and cut out the vinyl for the ghosts face. I made a spooky face and a friendly face since I couldn’t decide which I liked best.
Now, fill the jars with candy (I used M&M’s) and secretly deliver to your neighbors.
I found the cutest download for the Boo signs & directions from Anderson Ruff. I also printed out the Happy Halloween tag to attach to the top of each jar.
There you have it, a super cute treat for friends and neighbors!
