Halloween Craft: How to Make a “No Tricks, Just Treats” Jar

craftsholidays

I know you may think it's a little early, but I have had Halloween on the brain since the beginning of the summer. I know it's crazy, but it's my favorite holiday and I love all the crafts and inspiration that come from this spooky holiday that will be here in no time. 🙂

Today I wanted to share with you a few ideas that prove the Halloween is all about No Tricks, Just Treats!

With that in mind, let's begin with the contents of the jar above. I'm always trying to think of cute things to hand out at Halloween time. Candy is typical and that's what we usually do, but this next idea is cute, simple, and can even be healthy—yes, healthy!

How to Make a "No Trick, Just Treats" Jar

Supplies:

  • Vending Machine Capsules {purchased online or at party stores}
  • Treats or snacks that are color coordinated (orange snacks for the pumpkin capsules, etc.)
  • Vinyl or sharpies

  • Punkinheads Dingbat, which can be downloaded HERE.

Directions:

1. Begin by either cutting vinyl or drawing Pumpkin faces onto your capsules. For the vinyl, I downloaded the dingbat: Punkinheads, which can be downloaded HERE. I measured how big I wanted my vinyl face and cut it using my Silhouette.

2. From there you will fill your capsules with goodies.

  • For the Pumpkins: Cheez-Its, Mini GoldFish, Reeses Pieces, Candy Corn, etc.
  • For Frankenstein: Mint M&Ms, Green Sixlets or M&Ms (found at the candy store), Pistachios, etc.
  • For a Ghost: Marshmallows, Yogurt covered Raisins, etc.

3. Add tops and pass out!!

Now, since my kiddos have birthdays around Halloween, I thought these would perfect for our Halloween Birthday Party that we do every year. I wanted a cute way to display them and wanted to put them in an inexpensive jar I got from Walmart.

I decided to make some printable tags to add to the jar so I could give it as a gift, too.

I made them in Apple Green, Tangerine, and Purple, and I made them in THREE sizes—2 inches (perfect as tags), 3 inches, and 5 inches.

To download them go to the following links:

3 INCH & 5 INCH No Tricks Just Treats Tags

From there, I attached them to my jar with some glue dots and added some twine to the top.

You could even fill the jar with any type of goodies, like I did with these Reeses Pieces or even with Candy Corn or other Halloween Goodies to make a perfect Halloween Gift.

SO CUTE. SO EASY. AND SO INEXPENSIVE!What's not to love?

Hoping this post gets you excited for Halloween as much as it does for me! 😉 ENJOY!
