It’s fun to make your own Halloween goodie bags for a party or for the kids in your neighborhood.  These are fun and easy to make!

Materials & Tools:

  • Cellophane Bags
  • Candy
  • Scrapbook papers
  • Stickers and/or Halloween stamps and ink
  • Scissors, glue and a stapler


  1. Fill cellophane bag 2/3 full of candy.  Fold the bag opening over at least three times, ensuring excess air is out of the bag.  Staple the folded edge so bag is completely sealed.
  2. Cut the background decorative paper to make a card. (In the example to the right, the orange and white striped paper is the background).  The width should be the width of the sealed bag plus 1/2 inch.  The length should be the desired front height then doubled.
  3. Fold the background paper in half (to make a card).
  4. Decorate the front of “card” with stamped greetings and stickers.
  5. Staple the decorate card on the top of the cellophane bag, hiding the sealed edge of bag on both side.



Bag Tags

You can also make cute “bag tags” using the same materials.  Instead of stapling the decorative card to the top of the bag, tie the bag with ribbon and add a bag tag.

These tags are also great to tie on to a bottle of wine as a host/hostess gift for Halloween parties!

We used to make “Dirt & Worms” for the kids when they were little.  You start with chocolate pudding, add crushed chocolate wafers and gummy worms.  The kids LOVED them!  Well, these Tombstone Treats are very similar.

Fill clear plastic cups with chocolate pudding.  Top them with crushed chocolate wafers.  Pipe RIP on Trader Joe’s Vanilla Wafers and wedge the “tombstones” into the pudding.  Kids will love them!

I love these Witch Cookies! I haven’t made these before, but they sound easy because you use store bought sugar cookie dough.  You use green food coloring and unsweetened cocoa powder to get the green faces and brown hats.  Check out the recipe here.

These Meringue Ghosts are cute and easy to make.  You beat egg whites and sugar into stiff peaks then spoon it into a zip lock bag.  Snip a corner of the bag and pipe out ghosts then bake on low heat.  Click here for the recipe.
