It may still feel more like summer with the amazing (and kind of freaky) weather we’re enjoying at the moment but it is autumn and that can only mean one thing – it’s nearly Halloween!
And, because we love everything autumn and Halloween we couldn’t resist getting crafty and have made some DIY Halloween treat boxes!
As always, these are super easy to make and I’m sure that anyone would love to receive one of these spooky little treats on Halloween!
If you fancy making your own DIY Halloween treat boxes, this is what you will need:
- Free printable (you can download it here)
- Thick paper or card
- Optional: Red paper
- Scissors or a craft knife
- Double-sided tape or some glue
- Sweets or other treats to fill your DIY Halloween treat boxes
This is how to make them:
1. Start by downloading the template and printing it. We used white card for the boxes and red paper for Dracula’s cape.
This meant that we just had to print the black cape template on to some red paper. (If you don’t have any red paper, there’s a red cape option, too.) It’s a good idea to use fairly thin paper for the cape so that it hangs over the box.
2. Cut out the templates and lightly score along the dashed lines before folding to achieve a clean fold.
3. All that’s left to do is assemble your box by overlapping the sides and slotting the two tabs into the slits.
4. Finally, attach the head with a piece of double-sided tape. Dracula cape is, of course, optional but I think it really finishes the box off. Just cut it out and secure with a piece to double-sided tape at the back of his head.
That’s all there is to it! It literally only takes a couple of minutes to make these cute little DIY Halloween treat boxes!
We may not be decorating our home this year but that doesn’t mean we won’t be joining in with the festivities (although we do still need to sort our costumes, so any quick and easy suggestions would be very welcome!).
