How do you set out your Halloween treats? Do you place the goodies outside and hope no one takes off with the entire bowl, or do you greet the cutie tricksters at the door with every ‘trick or treat’ shout?

This year, I’m putting out some scary good snacks, like Pringles® Snack Packs and Cheez-It® Variety Packs, in fun painted Halloween tin cans.

Save those large tin cans from the spooky landfill with these ghoulishly easy Halloween tin can treat holders…

DIY Halloween Tin Can Treat Holders

This project is a “scream” to put together. Gather your little goblins to help and hope they don’t eat all the spook-tacular snacks!


– Large tin cans (I used 28 oz cans)
– Craft acrylic paints + brush
– Pipe cleaners
– Googly eyes
– Craft glue

Clean the tin cans and remove the label. Let dry.

Use craft acrylics to paint Halloween themed designs onto the cans, like the iconic candy corn.

With the base coat of paint applied, time to add those frighteningly cute details, like a jack o’lantern face.

Glue (or tape) some pipe cleaners to the inside of the can and add googly eyes to make a creepy tin can spider.

re-purpose tin cans for halloween treats and goodies

Fill these hallowed tin cans with a small piece of black or orange tissue paper and some yummy non-candy goodies like Rice Krispie® Treats – the classic marshmallow snack that has been around for generations; Pringles Snack Stacks – crispy single-serve tubs that’s just enough; and Cheez-It Variety Packs – the cheesy flavor cracker with the hole in the middle!

As a [frazzled] mom of three, I love that these non-candy Halloween snacks are portable for our on-the-go busy life, whether its school, sports or carpool. I found all these snacks at my local Kroger or Kroger banner store. Download a digital coupon to save on these Kellogg products at Kroger! Good from 10/2/2017 – 11/2/2017.
