Dolloween series day 5: Doll trick or treat bucket and candy craft!!!

Hey! Today I'll be showing you how to make a jack-o-lantern trick-or-treating bucket for your dolls! I'm also going to show you how to make doll sized candy. I hope you like this craft!

You will need: a hot glue gun, scissors, colored pencils, a pencil, scrap fun foam, white paper, thin cardboard, a black pipe cleaner, black construction paper, and orange construction paper.
Trace around the bottom of a smallish pill bottle and cut it out. Also cut out a strip that is about 1/4 inch wide and is long enough to wrap around your circle.
Glue the strip around your circle. Cut four more strips of your cardboard and glue them on like shown.
Cut another strip and use to connect all four strips together, making sure that the top part is the same size as the bottom part. Is should be round shaped. I don't really know how to explain it, but try to make it look like the picture.
Cut a bunch of orange strips from your orange construction paper and glue them all around your bag.
Glue on your pipe cleaner.
Lastly, cut out a face from black construction paper and glue it on your bag. Now you're done with the bag!
To make it so that you don't have to make a bunch of candy, stuff a piece of white paper inside carefully.
For the candy, sketch out the shape of your candy, making sure it is the right size for dolls. This will ensure that you don't make your piece of candy too big.
Sketch in your candy logo.
Color it in and cut it out, leaving extra paper on each end.
For candies like Starburst, fold the paper so that it is not completely flat. This photo and the next one illustrate how I folded my starburst wrapper.

For thick candies, stack layers of scrap fun foam, and cut them down to the right size to fit in your wrapper.
Put the "candy" into the wrapper.
Glue the back shut.
Then glue the sides shut.
Cut a zig-zag pattern across the top of the edge of the wrapper.
And you're done! Now you have a cute trick or treating bag and some candy for your doll!


Photoshoot time!!!
