How to Make Halloween Treat Candy Bar Covers that are fun gifts to give at your Halloween Party or trick or treaters. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea.
Halloween is just a couple of days away, but there is still a little bit of time left to make these fun Halloween Treat Candy Bar Covers. I needed some small easy gifts for my coworkers and this little project was perfect, and who doesn’t love candy bars, especially around Halloween?
I found a box of 18 assorted candy bars. Perfect. What I don’t give away I will keep for me to eat!
This idea originally came from Skip to My Lou. These would be perfect!
Skip to My Lous has printable PDFs that you can download, but I wanted to use my Cricut Explore so I created my own version of the Bat Candy Bar Wrapper and Ghost Candy Bar Wrapper. They are PNG files that you can upload into Cricut Design Space. Make the wing span of the wrapper 6 1/2-inches to fit the candy bars perfectly.
Here they are all cut out, I only did the bat and the ghost.
Score a line along the inside wing so they will fold up perfectly. Use google eyes and attached the candy bars with glue dots. Making all 18 took me just over an hour, so it really is a pretty quick project.
For the greeting on the inside wing, I found some Halloween stamps in my stash that fit the theme perfectly! The bat says “Bats about you”, and the ghost says “Happy Boo from me to you”.
I sure hope my coworkers like them! Who are you going to make them for? Share and leave a comment below.
