Non-traditional use of Halloween collections (Day 1)

Welcome back friends!  Today I am showing some projects I made for Pebbles.

I was assigned the collection Thirty-One for this month's projects, but this created a problem for me because we don't celebrate Halloween.  So, what did I do?  I created to my hearts content with this collection, but I looked at things with different eyes!

My kids and I really love candy (actually I probably love it more) so we always head to Target the day after Halloween to buy some clearance candy - each kid gets to pick a bag of goodies to bring home.  I decided I would make a treat box to hold all of our goodies (or at least some of them) and decided it probably should be filled now, lol!

I began with my new favorite drink, IBC Root Beer and altered the container with some papers and mod podge, it makes a perfect container to hold things!

Thanks for joining me as I look at non-traditional ways to use Halloween collections, see you tomorrow for more projects!
