I have been so excited to make this easy project that I’ve been holding onto this empty tissue box for weeks. I can’t count the number of times someone in my house asked me if it could be tossed out.

Of course, it was a little early at the time to start crafting for Halloween but September is the official green light in my mind. Now I can start pulling out the Halloween fun!

It’s time for you to start thinking about your own Halloween decorations, too. Start saving those tissue boxes so you can make your own spooky Halloween candy container.

Would you ever guess that this gorgeous spooky Halloween candy container used to hold tissues?! It is seriously easy to make although you might want to have a backup stash of candy to refill it. I must deprive my family because they are already flying through it (minus a few Kit Kats I nabbed). Luckily, even empty it’s still an awesome piece of Halloween decor for the table!
