This year, 74% of Americans will spend a total of $2.4 billion on Halloween decorations for their homes. To help all food and beverage manufacturers get in on the fun, Crown offers a range of decorative techniques to dress up the packaging of products that consumers love. 

Imagine inks with phosphorescent pigments that glow in the dark, embossing and debossing to create intricate designs or photochromic inks that can reveal spooky or celebratory messages. The possibilities are endless.

Yet the fun doesn’t have to stop at sipping a soda in the dark. In addition to adding festive food and beverage packaging to your cabinets (and your party goodie bags!), you can also utilize cans for decorating your home. Before recycling your beverage can or food can, consider following one of these festive DIY ideas for decorating tips:

  • For the painter, follow the instructions to create these adorable, googly-eyed Frankenstein cans from You Brew My Tea.
  • For the fabric guru, check out these Halloween bat soda toppers that you can adorn any can, glow-in-the-dark or otherwise, with!
  • For the foodie, craft these simple (yet deliciously sweet) festive straws to drop into your favorite canned beverage.

Whether for last-minute Halloween décor or inspiration for next year’s festivities, don’t be scared to give these projects a try! Décor that utilizes metal cans offers a cost-effective and sustainable way to get in touch with your inner ghoul or goblin.
