Halloween Candy Crate Treat Holder

Anything that holds candy can be super adorable, even when it’s for the spookiest holiday!

I was looking for a simple treat holder for trick-or-treaters when I created this. We get a lot of kids and wanted something quick and easy, yet cute!

It’s also quick enough to make multiple of these candy crates, making them a good idea for a teacher to make for their students, a “room parent,” or anyone who wants to make something cute for the candy-lovers in their life!

Check out my easy tutorial for this halloween candy crate below.

Supplies:

And your favorite Candy, of course! I lived in Hershey, PA for a few years, so of course the kisses (wrapped in orange foil) went into the treat bag!!

Just a few easy steps:

  1. Create the Crate.
    • Use the Wood crate framelit to cut two pieces out from the wood textures paper. I was able to cut both from a single sheet of 6″x6″.
    • Fold and Glue together.
  2. Use the Cat Punch with a black cardstock scrap for your black cat.
    • Glue to the front of your crate.
  3. Stamp the moon from Wood Words in Mango Melody on a white cardstock scrap.
    • Die cut using the wood crate framelit set.
    • Glue to the front of your crate.
  4. Stamp a sentiment for your tag on a white cardstock scrap using Mango Melody ink.
    • Cut out using the wood crate framelit set.
  5. Fill the bag with candy and tie it up 12″ of your with your bakers twine.
    • Don’t forget to tie your tag onto it!

    1. Thank you, Ashley! We recently moved from an area where we got maybe half a dozen trick or treaters to a new place with “over a hundred” as the neighbors tell us, so I’m a bit worried! 😂 I’m glad you like it!

  1. Hi Laura,
    Such an awesome idea for trick treaters. Great job. We don’t get many knocking on the door (Australia) but growing up in the UK it was such a fun thing to do as a child. Love the way you set out your instructions. Very easy to read & follow. Thank you for participating in our papercraft challenge & we hope you will join us again in the next one 🙂

    1. Hi Lisa! Trick-or-treating as a kid is a lot of fun, but now as adults it’s fun to dress up the candy, right? I’m so glad you were able to experience it while you grew up in the UK, but I didn’t know how uncommon it was in Australia 😦 Leaving the bags on co-workers desks works, too. Thank you for your comment, and I look forward to the next papercraft challenge.
