By now, you’re surely done with your Halloween candy (I’m being decorous; obviously you were done with it by Saturday at the latest). All that’s left is a sick feeling in your gut and a pile of landfill-clogging wrappers. We can’t do anything about the first, but Apartment Therapy has collected a whole bunch of ideas for how to deal with the second.

Our favorites are the buckets for treats (or whatever), above, which make the candy wrapper designs look like some kind of sophisticated textile, and the coiled vase, below, which you almost can’t tell is candy wrappers at all. But you can also find instructions for making a curtain, a garland, a decoupaged light switch plate, and of course good old-fashioned origami. We’re pretty sure you have enough wrappers to try them all.
