Tips & Tricks Tuesday – Halloween Treat to Christmas Party Favor

Do you have candy leftover from Halloween? Or perhaps your kids collected more candy than they could possibly consume before Easter!

Here’s a simple craft that will take that candy from Trick or Treat goody to Christmas party favor.

You’ll need:

Paper tubes (empty toilet paper rolls work great)

Scraps of Christmas wrapping paper approximately 6″X6″ (15 cm X 15 cm)

Glue stick


Leftover Halloween Candy

To make the party favors:

Begin by cutting scraps of Christmas wrapping paper into squares.

Step 1 - 6x6 inch piece of wrapping paper and toilet paper roll

Apply glue to the back of the paper along all four sides using a glue stick.

Step 2 - Glue all around four sides of paper

Wrap the paper around the tube.  It will extend over the end of the tube by about an inch (2.5 cm) on either end.

Step 3 - Wrap the paper around the roll

Make several cuts in the edge of the wrapping paper and fold down inside.  Repeat for the other end.

Step 4 - Clip paper and fold down into tube

Cover several tubes with wrapping paper.

Step 5 - Cover several paper tubes with different paper

Fold the bottom of the tube in half and staple closed.

Step 6 - Fold bottom in half and staple

Place a candy inside.

Step 7 - Pop a candy insideFold the top of the tube in the opposite direction that you folded the bottom and staple closed.

Step 8 - Fold top in opposite direction and staple

Now hide them away until December!

    That’s a great idea! You’d have to be faster than that, though. I already ATE the leftovers! LOL Still, there’s more where that came from, right?

    I get the impression that in some households, it would be the “hiding away” that would be the tricky bit!

    Great idea, but I strongly suspect that they wouldn’t last until Christmas (at least not in my house!!). The only way I could do it would be if I were to put Mars Bars in there – I hate them, so wouldn’t be tempted.

    There is never any such thing as left over sweets in this house! We bought in bags of chocolates just in case, but didn’t have any visitors on Halloween so we are steadily working our way through them instead 🙂
