FREE Halloween Treat Bag Toppers
The little boy my daughter babysits is three and he is IN LOVE with Halloween right now. It’s so great because he really makes you feel all the excitement and wonder of the season. Whenever we see a pumpkin, he looks at you sideways and says with a big smile, “It’s almost Halloweeeeen time!” His enthusiasm is contagious!
Do you celebrate Halloween? Will you be trick or treating or will you have a party, or both!? I adore Halloween parties and I usually try to have one every year – I enjoy making all the spooky themed treats, the games are fun, but mostly I love to see everyone in costumes – it’s so fun to see what’s in their imagination from year to year.
One of my favorite things to give for party favors is treat bags – it’s fun to load them up with homemade candy and treats, but I also include an apple, raisins, nuts, and you could even do a toothbrush and mini toothpaste or something! To make them more special I usually make a personalized treat bag topper for them. Every year I do a different design. Here is a photo from one of the years.
For those, I just used plain paper bags, filled them with goodies and stapled the treat bag toppers to them. On the outside I made “ghost pops” using tootsie roll pops covered with white paper towels. I fastened them around the neck with rubber bands, but you could use ribbons, or bread twistie ties or whatever you have laying around. I drew on two eyes and taped them underneath their spooky shrouds. It was simple, but fun and the kids loved them!
If you’d like to make some this year I have a template for you! All you have to do is grab the FREE template, decorate them and print them out to use! So fun and easy! Head over to With Love Studio and pick up the FREE template.
