Do you have candy leftover from Halloween? Or perhaps your kids collected more candy than they could possibly consume before Easter! Turn Halloween treats into Christmas party favors with craft supplies you probably already have on hand.
This year we had way more candy than trick or treaters. Having it sitting around the house could seriously sabotage the progress I’ve made towards my healthy living goals.
This simple craft that will take that candy from Trick or Treat goody to Christmas party favor.
Supplies Needed To Make these Fun Christmas Party Favors:
- Paper tubes (empty toilet paper rolls work great)
- Scraps of Christmas wrapping paper approximately 6 ½” X 6½” (16.5 cm X 16.5 cm)
- Glue stick
- Leftover Halloween Candy
To make the party favors:
Begin by cutting scraps of Christmas wrapping paper into 6 ½” squares.
Apply glue to the back of the paper and along all four sides using a glue stick.
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.
Make several cuts in the edge of the wrapping paper and fold down inside. Repeat for the other end.
Cover several tubes with wrapping paper.
Fold the bottom of the tube in half and staple closed.
Place a candy inside.
Fold the top of the tube in the opposite direction that you folded the bottom and staple closed.
Continue to staple, fill, staple until you run out of candy or paper wrapped tubes.
Now the Christmas Party Favors away until December!
When it comes time for your Christmas Party put them in a pretty basket and pass them around to guests.
