Simple Halloween Treat Cups
I shared these simple Halloween treat cups a few weeks ago during eighteen25's super fun Spooktacular September. My kids loved making these! Scroll down for the full tutorial.
It's no secret that I like to keep my craft projects simple + sweet and these little Halloween treat cups are no exception. Follow along as I show you how to put them together. They're quick, inexpensive and would make great party favours, classroom treats or just a cute Halloween craft for the kiddos.
-black, orange and green paper cups
We made three varieties of treat cups - pumpkins, bats and Frankenstien monsters. Use construction paper to create your bat's wings, Frankenstien's hair + bolts and the pumpkin's mouth then attach to the corresponding cups using a gluestick. To attach the wings and Frank's bolts, fold over a small flap on the end and apply glue the flap.
Now add your eyes and any finishing touches with a black sharpie. For the bat's mouth and fangs use a white opaque marker or some white craft paint.
Now you're ready to add your treats. We chose treats that matched the colour of our cups, but any Halloween goodies will do. Throw them in a small cellophane bag, tie it shut with some coordinating ribbon and add the bags to your treat cups.
