You may remember these plain pillow boxes I scored at the thrift store last year. I used some of them to create Valentine's Day treat boxes. They turned out really cute and were so simple to make that I decided to make some for Halloween, too.

  • Stencil (optional)

Start by painting the pillow box. You'll notice I left one natural too.

Once the paint dries, use a fine point Sharpie marker to create the jack o'lantern face. I happened to have a thrifted stencil on hand, but you could also draw the face if you prefer.

Last, use small twigs to create the pumpkin stems. I just found one outside and cut it in two pieces with garden shears. Use a hole punch on the lid flap to make a small hole for the stem and press it in firmly.
