Snowman Candy Container

Snowman Candy Container

From the Blogger: “It's easy to take a 2-liter Coke bottle and turn it into the darn cutest snowman candy container ever. Cut the bottle into three pieces as shown (discard the "middle" of the bottle) and test for a good fit. Next paint the bottom white for the face of the snowman and the top red, for his hat. I used acrylic craft paint with a coat of Modge Podge on top, but you can use spray paint for a slightly quicker result. Add two buttons for eyes and a triangle of orange for the nose, and you're done!”

That's about the cutest candy container I ever saw! I've seen different uses for 2 liter bottles but I think this is the best and it looks so easy to do. I agree with frazierhlhs below that it would make a cool gift container, but I can't think of a way to make the top stay on for that.

This would make a good gift container for small gifts too. Just tie a gift tag around the top and you will be giving a reusable container as well as the gift. I would rather use something like this instead of a store-bought gift bag.
