Cute and Creepy Halloween Treats {and a free printable!}

A few nights ago as I was drifting off to sleep… dreaming of future blog posts.. an idea hit me!  Everyone once in a while I impress myself  =)  I thought of a cute, creepy and funny kids snack perfect for Halloween treat bags.  And here it is….

Wait… you don’t think red candies, pretzels and marshmallows are fun and creepy?

How about now….

Cute right??  Now I should apologize a bit here… I know you’re used to me posting pretty, elegant, lady-like treats, but I’ve got to let my hair down every now and then! =)  And I can pretty much guarantee that you will never again see the word “poop” in any of my blog posts!

But I’ll have to tell you, as I was making us these little treat bags, my 7 and 4 year old sweet little girls were cracking up, asking for “more spider legs please..” and “can I have 3 more rat eyes”.

I created a special (free!) printable bag topper just for these cute and creepy treats.

Simply follow the link below to get your…

Printable Creepy Halloween Treat Bag Topper

I would recommend printing them onto white cardstock, then use a paper trimmer to cut them.  The finished size of each topper will be 4″ wide and 3″ tall.  Fold them in half (lenghtwise), then use double sided tape to attach them to the bags.  Before I added the tags I folded the bag over a couple times and stapled it closed.

To make these Halloween treat bags you’ll need…

Red candies (I used sixlets)

Pretzel Sticks

Mini Marshmallows

Small clear treat bags

Printable topper (link above)

Gray twine (optional)  I used twine from The Twinery, in stone.

I’ve posted a cute Halloween packaging idea in the the past, if you’re looking for something a little less gross.

Happy Snacking!

  3. Super bummed I can’t get the printable to download for free :(

  4. I can’t seem to get the download to work for free either … it’s $9 a day in order to print it or save it :(

  5. I have tried everything to download, cut paste, copy. I still cant get the lables to print. Any way I can get it emailed or a link posted so we can download for FREE. I am room mom for 2 of my kids class and we are making these for their Halloween parties, which my kids are so excited about. Thanks for the great idea, hope we can get the lable without having to pay the $9.00. :)

  6. I copied and pasted to Open Office (Microsoft Office clone) and it worked fine. I only wish I could separate the labels because I think I could get at least 7, maybe 9 or 10 , to a page. Actually, I guess that would be 14 – 20. Is there any way to do that???
    These are so cute – thanks for sharing!!!

  7. Very cute idea love your web site….

    At Christmas use the marshmallows as snowman poop, choc covered raisins or peanuts as reindeer poop

  8. j’aime beaucoup !… je cherche des freebies sur le Net pour les partager, pour l’instant sur Pinterest (où j’ai déjà plus de 13000 liens vers des téléchargements gratuits), en attendant l’ouverture de mon propre site, et je vais vite poster le lien pour que tout le monde puisse télécharger et utiliser votre création !… merci pour le partage, Is… (si vous voulez voir ce que je fais, c’est là : )
