DIY Halloween Candy Crafts

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble–Halloween is almost here, and we’re celebrating with some of our favorite DIY candy crafts. For less than $20, you can purchase all of the supplies you need to create some seasonal, spine-chilling sweets.  The perfect at-home project for kids anticipating the evening’s festivities or favors for your Halloween party, these creepy crafts are guaranteed to add a little horror to your holiday.

I. Creepy Halloween Candy Corn Treat Boxes

What You Need: A few small plastic boxes with lids, candy corn, a sheet of Halloween-inspired mini posters (easily found online), scissors, tape, and a roll of orange raffia.

  1. First, fill your plastic containers with a handful of candy corn.

2. Next, cut out the squares of Halloween-inspired mini posters that you want to use, and attach these to the lids of your plastic containers with tape.

3. Tie off your treat boxes with some orange raffia, and voila! You have the perfect creepy candy boxes for trick or treaters as well as Halloween party guests!


II. Boo! Blowpops

What You Need: Blowpops, white tissue, tape, a fine-point Sharpie, white raffia, fake spiderwebbing, and a block of florists’ oasis.

  1. First, attach a rolled piece of tape to the head of the Blowpop.

2. Next, roll a piece of white tissue around the head of the Blowpop, making sure that the tape adheres to the tissue. Tie a knot at the top of the stick, leaving as little raffia as possible on either side.

3. Then, with your fine-point Sharpie, draw your ghost’s face! Silly or spooky, there’s no wrong way.

4. Lastly, cover your block of florists’ oasis with fake spiderwebbing to create a ghoulish graveyard vibe.

5. Stick your spirits in the oasis, and there you have it–a cemetery haunted by spooky sweets!
