Hello Halloween lovers. Oh yes, this holiday coming fast and now is the time to get those fun little treats created for classroom parties. What’s easier than some candy all wrapped up? I hoard toilet paper tubes and paper towel rolls for occasions like this. We will be making 15 of these for my girl scout troop. It’s super easy and fun. I’m using some new products from both Glitz Design and May Arts ribbon.
- Materials needed:
- Toilet paper tube
- Patterned paper
- Washi tape
- Small plastic bag
- Halloween embellishments
- Gemstones or enamel dots
First, start off by cutting your patterned paper down to 4-¼”. That’s the size of a normal toilet paper tube.
Attach your paper using a stapler. This is much faster than trying to use glue or other adhesives.
Next, fill your small plastic bag with candy and stuff it into the center of the tube.
Wrap your tulle around the tube lengthwise and close with a piece of coordinating washi tape.
Choose a couple Halloween ribbons and trim the ends to 45 degree angles. Layer them and tie a knot in the end to close the tulle around the toilet paper tube.
Trim off any excess tulle or ribbon and it’s time to embellish.
I created tags by using punches or pre-made embellishments. I layered then a numbered die cut with a fun raven and a large-faceted gemstone.
So fast and so fun! I hope you give this one a try. I made this in about 15 minutes. Happy haunted crafting!
