A week or so ago, I was shopping at Michael’s. I don’t remember what I had gone in there for, but when I saw the end cap of some cute blank packaging, I knew I needed to get these cute little blank cups. They remind me of mini ice cream containers. 🙂 I just knew they would be perfect for putting together a fun DIY Halloween Treat Gift Box, a Thanksgiving Host Gift, or even Neighbor Gifts for Christmas time. So fun and easy to put together! I’m hoping to put a few more together by the end of the year.

DIY Halloween Treat Gift Box Supplies:
- White Treat Cups (I found mine at Michael’s)
- Halloween Paper
- Halloween Tags/Stickers
- Hershey’s Miniatures (or other candy)
- Glue Dots
- Hot Glue Gun
To start, I covered the mini candy bars with Halloween paper. I picked up a bag of the fall colored candy at my local grocery store. I measure the width and how far around the bar. Then I trimmed my paper. I cut it to be 1 3/8″ x 3″, and it worked great. Once I had the paper cut, I wrapped a piece around the mini candy bars and secured it with a glue dot.
Don’t they look so fun and festive?!
Next, I was ready to cover the cup. I traced the cup onto paper, then cut it out. I did have to trim it a little more after the initial cut, because of the rounded lip at the top of the cup. Using the glue gun, I glued one end of the paper onto the cup, and then wrapped the paper around and secured the other end with the hot glue as well.
Once the paper was on, I added some ribbon.
For the lid, I traced the lid onto paper. I cut it out, inside of the line a little, because of the lip. Then I trimmed it a little more where it needed it, so it could fit. Once I had it fitting inside the lid, I used glue dots to attach it.
I used the strip off of the bottom of the paper around the edge of the lid.
I pulled out the stickers and tags and started attaching them to the lid. I also added a couple of enamel dots. I love what they add!
Didn’t the lid turn out so cute?!
I filled it up with the fun Halloween wrapped mini candy bars, and they just look perfect in it.
The combination of the black, white, and orange on this DIY Halloween Treat Gift Box turned out perfectly, don’t you think?
I did add a couple of bats on the edge of the lid as well.
Do you have a friend who would love to get this cute DIY Halloween Treat Gift Box full of chocolate?
I’m not sure what I adore more, the cute lid with the skeleton, or the mini candy bars wrapped in cute paper.
This DIY Halloween Treat Gift Box could be a cute Halloween party favor too!
