Candy bags are fantastic patriotic party favors to make. Shaped like rockets, these festive candy bags are great for kids at your 4th of July parties. Make darling paper bags shaped like rockets. The kids will love them and they'll love eating the candy inside just as much or even more! This is such an easy party craft to make, and it will make your gathering all the more festive. You could also make these favors for other patriotic holidays and occasions. Celebrate the fireworks with this wonderful project. 

Materials List

  • White paper bags
  • Red, white, and blue washi tape
  • Red cardstock cut into a circle
  • Silver metallic pipe cleaners
  • Star stickers
  • Scissors
  • Candy
  • Adhesive


  1. Cut off the bottom of the bag and down the sides so you wind up with about a 9x9" square.

  2. Tape the long ends of the bag together to form the rocket so there are openings at both ends.

  3. Using alternating colors, add strips of washi tape around the bag until you've covered the entire bag.

  4. Next, add the star stickers all over.

  5. Tightly twist one end of the bag, then wrap tape around the end to secure it.

  6. Fill the bag with treats, then tightly twist the other end and tape it to secure as well.

  7. To make the rocket topper, cut halfway into the red paper circle until the point of your scissors reaches the center of the circle. Use the center as a point, and overlap the edges of the circle to make a cone. Hot glue it to one of the closed ends of your rocket.

  8. Add silver pipe cleaners to the other twisted ends of your bag and you're done!
