Going Batty for Halloween Favors
These treat boxes are so easy, so cute and so much fun to make! Batty Halloween Favors.
I love making little containers for Halloween treats. I think they are super cute to give out during class parties or trunk or treats. I especially like when these containers can be emptied easily without destruction and kept as a toy for a few days to play with.
These are definitely for younger kids, but I could see them being a delight at an office party or Halloween party. Cute favors that will put a smile on everyone’s faces.
Let’s get to making some! This part is kind of boring and colorless, but it’s just the basics to make our batty containers.
You will need a toilet tube roll for each favor.
To make the ears on the bat, and closure of the tube, fold the tube down on one side.
Then fold the other side down, the sides create tips that make the bat ears.
This is what they look like from the side.
To create the container, take some tape, I used some medical tape because that was what I had on hand.
Tape across the container from front to back.
Tape again, from side to side.
Take a strip of the tape and tape all the way around the tube again.
Paint the entire tube black, with acrylic paint.
After the paint is dry, fill the boxes with treats. I chose some flavored caramels.
Push the tops back down, then use some wired edge ribbon in black at 2 inches wide, cut at an angle and put a knot in the center.
Hot glue the knot to the back of the tube.
On the front of the tube, glue on some mixed googly eyes.
To make the bows, cut a strip of cardstock 2 inches long, by 1 inch wide.
Crease the cardstock at 1/8 inch increments, and fold in accordion style. Pinch in the center and add a little glue, then trim a thin piece of cardstock and wrap around.
Finish by gluing the bow tie on the bat.
Love how cute these turned out!
