Halloween Treat Boxes



It is almost time again  for class Halloween parties.  I thought it would the be the perfect time to add to my treat box collection..  



Do you remember these?  I came up made my Bunny Treat Boxes  for  Easter 2011, and they quickly become one of my popular posts and most pinned ideas. 

Then last Thanksgiving, I added my Turkey Treat Boxes, and they too were well received



 Since there seems to be a lot of moms looking for ways to make quick and easy treats, I came up with 6 Halloween designs.  I am introducing the first 3 today.  The others will be shared  in the next day or two. 





To make Frankenstein, I cut a green rectangle from cardstock to fit the top of the dollar store treat box.  (They come in packages of 10 or 12 so they are .10 or less each.)   Glue on whatever eyes you would prefer. I thought he would look good with the small eyes. You can find a large bag of google eyes in various sizes in the craft aisle at the Dollar Tree.  



 I glued on hair and bolts with  more cardstock.  (you could easily substitute craft foam)  I then drew on the mouth with a black fine tip sharpie. 


I cut a black circle out of cardstock for the spider body.  I than  added the larger size eyes. It just seemed more fitting to me.  To make the spider legs, I used two pipe cleaners and folded them in half twice.  Folding it that way makes 4 equal size legs with each pipe cleaner.  


I glued on the pipe cleaner legs using a hot glue gun.  I tried to make sure they were evenly placed.  I then allowed the dry to cool before trying to bend the legs.  

I cut strips of white card stock to make the mummy. 


The first step was to glue the eyes onto the lid of the box.  I then glued on the strips of paper so some of it overlapped.   I did not cut to size quite yet.  Each of the strips hung over the sides of the box. I allowed the glue to cool, then trimmed around the box so that paper was even.  


I filled them with candy, and then had them pose for pictures.   These Halloween treat boxes are the perfect size to bring to those class parties, or really  to hand out at Halloween parties of any kind. 

I will be linking up my Halloween treat boxes at these wonderful linky parties HERE. Come by and take a look.
