What a fun and easy way to dress up snacks for Halloween parties and festivals!

I started with these 3x4 craft bags with a ziploc closure from Hobby Lobby.  Unexpected bonus they were on clearance when I went to get them! But even regular price $4.49 for 250 is a great deal.

Next I made labels to fit the bags.  Fit as many as you can on a page. Here’s what my original looks like:

TIP: Solid black images work the best when making Xerox copies on colored paper.  Find a simple image that is black and white. Silhouettes or coloring book pages work well.

Next we gathered the goodies.  For this project, we collected candy corn, chocolate chips, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and marshmallows.

Then we stapled the tags to the bags.  Up to this point, everything can be done ahead of time so less time is spent on party day assembling the treats.

Next stuff the bags with your treats!
Witches Warts = Chocolate Chips
Marshmallows = Ghost Poop
Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal = Monster Scabs
Jack O Lantern Teeth = Candy Corn

All together, they make a great display for Halloween parties, favors, festivals, etc.

  3. Oh.my.goodness! I have made a TON of treat bags over the years and NEVER even once have I thought to put the zipper on the bottom! That is an amazing tip! Heading to Etsy now to buy the templates! I'll be making full sets for my daughter's fourth grade class, my son's kindergarten class, and my own class of fifth graders! Four bags X 25 students X 3 classes is 300 bags!! That's a lot of bags, and the only way it's possible is by being able to staple them ahead of time! Thank you! Thank you!
