Idea 13: Witch Shoe Treat Favor

Halloween DIY Projects Witch Shoes

Perfect for a ‘Ghouls Night Out’ this witch shoe treat is a unique favor idea.  We used printable pattern papers as the shoe insole and party circles as the toe embellishment.  Simply fill each shoe with a little paper shred and a cute cellophane bag of treats.

Idea #14:  Altered Soda Bottle/Treat Favor

Halloween DIY Project Bottle Craft Idea

If you love Jones Soda, don’t throw out the bottles when you are finished drinking from them.  They are perfect for filling with small candies like candy corn, chocolate chips and M&Ms.  Add a little raffia or ribbon, a favor tag and label for a cute Halloween favor!

Idea #15:  Halloween Treat Favor Bag

Halloween DIY Project Pumpkin Favor Bag

Add a little creativity to a basic bag of treats by designing a “tent” style favor bag topper out of printable paper and Halloween embellishments.

Idea #16:  Halloween card

Halloween DIY Project Greeting Card Idea

I don’t know about you, but when I am crafting, I always have a pile of scraps leftover.  One of my favorite ways to use leftovers is by creating cards!  This is an example of a simple Halloween card.  We used glue dots to give the pumpkin a little dimension.

Idea #17: Halloween Treat Tin (filled w/ mini candy bars covered in candy bar wrappers)

Halloween DIY Project Craft Tin Idea

Thinking outside the box (or in this case, the tin), we came up with the idea to use IKEA spice tins to package custom Halloween wrapped mini candy bars.  We added a printable label and dressed up the sides of the tin with coordinating papers.

Idea #18:  Halloween Paper Treat Sack

Halloween DIY Project Treat Bag Idea

It’s always a great day when I can use materials I have on hand to create something new and fun! Can you believe that a plain old paper sack can be the perfect base for cute packaging?  We rolled down the sides of our bag, added some raffia, a sticker label and tag and filled our paper treat sack with our favorite white chocolate popcorn snack mix!  It’s the perfect treat to share with family and friends.

Idea #19:  Mummy Oreo Pops in Coffin Display

Halloween DIY Project Treat Display

Displaying desserts in unique ways is so much fun.  We painted paper mache coffin boxes discovered at our local craft store.  Each coffin was lined with coordinating printable papers and the lids were embellished with cute treat labels cut down for size.  We filled the coffins with Styrofoam from which we could display orange cream ice cream push up pops.

Idea #20:  Altered Tin Can/Treat Favor

Halloween DIY Project Tin Can Idea

Recycled materials make for some inexpensive DIY projects.  Instead of discarding your aluminum cans, save them!  Stick them in the dishwasher to sterilize them, or give them a good handwashing.  Add fabric or paper wrappers and decorate them with cute labels, ribbon and buttons!  Fill them with paper shred and favorite Halloween treats.

Idea #21:  Spooky Sucker with Halloween Medallion

Halloween DIY Project Lolly Pop Idea

Add some Halloween pizzazz to an ordinary sucker!  Simply punch out a two inch Halloween circle topper and adhere to the sucker!  Add ribbon.

Idea #22:  3-D Paper Pumpkins

Halloween DIY Project Paper Pumpkin idea

If you’re searching for a Halloween craft that’s easy enough for kids to do, these 3-D pumpkins are just the ticket!  Make from strips of patterned paper and attach with brads at the top and bottom.  Add a hand-cut leaf, twisted paper bag stem and embellish with raffia and a printable hang tag.  You can make one or create an entire bowl full to make a festive centerpiece.  Or, carefully stick a small gift or treat in the center to give away as a favor!

Idea #23:  Distressed Wood Blocks (“TRICKS”)

Halloween DIY Project Wood Blocks

If you are looking for an easy and inexpensive Halloween décor item for your home or office, this may be it!  Cut some wood blocks (or purchased pre-cut wood blocks from a craft store).  Sand and paint them in your favorite Halloween color.  We left ours a nice neutral color and distressed the edges.  Modge Podge or apply adhesive to printable words (ours were included in the Anders Ruff Halloween set).

With so many ideas to choose from, you are now ready to get going on your own spooktacular Halloween DIY projects!
