Tart Up Your Halloween Treats – With Free Printable

Those of you who follow me on social media may have noticed that throughout this week I have been sharing my Halloween Pinterest Boards with lots of inspiration for easy food, decor and costumes. Now for my own contribution – Free Printable Labels to spruce up your Halloween treats.

Last year my Spooky Sweeties were so popular that I was inspired to try & make my mini monsters smile again Click To Tweet

I like to give out pre wrapped sweets and so opted for the mini bags of Haribo that you can buy at most supermarkets. I know some parents like to be able to see what it is their kids are getting very clearly so I designed two options of the same label.

Firstly you have the sticker version:

These are designed to be printed onto A4 Self Adhesive Labels using an ordinary inkjet printer and feature some howlingly bad Halloween jokes and my own hand drawn versions of famous monsters.

You can download the sticky label version here.

In addition to this I thought that the design would lend itself well to a tab top version which would keep all parts of the packaging in view in case of nervous parents or children with allergies.

All you need is to print them onto card (or even paper if you are stuck), cut them out and staple them into position.

Spooky Sweeties for Halloween

We’re not much for celebrating Halloween in our house.  We no longer have small children and my husband and I never “Trick or Treated” as kids (him because he lived in the middle of nowhere and me because I lived in a big city where the process turned VERY nasty).

We now live in a medium /large village where “Trick or Treating” is done beautifully. Parents accompany their kids, it is about sweets and treat (not money) and they never call at a house unless you have a carved Pumpkin outside your front door.  Because to this I wanted to get more in the spirit this year.

I saw a tutorial on “A Beautiful Mess” a couple of weeks ago for Lollipops made to look like ghosties that was really sweet (If you haven’t had a roam around “ABM” take a look, it is my all time favourite blog, completely inspiring and very beautiful!). These spooky sweeties for Halloween were an incredibly easy to make and the children will remember getting something so special.

I  decided  to tweak the idea a bit for some cute things to give to our little visitors on the 31st .  Using fabric felt a bit wasteful as it would be discarded by the little cherubs in thirty seconds flat and little hands would struggle with undoing knots.

Underneath are lollipops.  I used tissues, half a pipe cleaner wrapped around and bent into reaching “arms” and a felt tip pen for the faces.

Can’t wait for Halloween to give them out!
