Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.
I love that it can be just as fun for kids as for adults, and it’s a perfect opportunity to exercise a ton of creativity, both in choosing AND creating your halloween costume (here’s my zombie costume from last year and here’s one of Chris‘, a mad scientist).
I also love handing out candy (and scaring the older kids)—but it wasn’t until this year that it occurred to me that I could combine my love of cute gift wrapping with my love of Halloween. I am working on some new styles, but for now, here are some of my favorite…..
DIY Halloween Candy Bags
….plus other Halloween-themed gift wrapping!
These super simple and fun googly-eyed paper ghost candy bags by Craft-o-Maniac:
These cute little owl candy bags you can make with a free printable from Paper Crave:
This fantastic witches broom candy bag free printable from LollyJane:
Lastly, here are a few Halloween Gift Wrap ideas—they take a bit more time so might not be as good for handing out as DIY Halloween candy bags, but if you have only a few kids you’re giving a special gift to for Halloween, they’d be just the ticket!
This adorable “What’s in there” box from Growing Spaces:
This gothic Black & White Gift Wrap style from Nordic Bliss appears to be made for Christmas, but I think with very few tweaks (say a spider on the white ones, a little pumpkin or dead leaf on the black ones) they could make great Halloween gift boxes!
I’ll be working on some of my own styles this weekend that are a bit more generally Autumn-themed, so stay tuned…
