Halloween Treat Crackers :)

Start with this little ole tube :)
Here’s a green Halloween craft project that’s simple, creative, and kid friendly. “Treat tubes” make a fun and DIY alternative to store bought treat sacks and can be used at Halloween parties or given to trick-or-treaters. They’re just big enough to fit things like fruit strips, candies, little toys, and mini Fair Trade chocolates. Plus, it’s a great way to use up all those TP tubes!Just start with an empty toilet paper tube, fill it with small treats, wrap it in paper, twist and tie up the ends with ribbon, and add any sort of decoration you want to the outside. You probably already have all of the supplies needed such as glue, scissors, and of course toilet paper tubes. For embellishments you can buy store bought decor such as scrapbooking supplies, or go totally DIY and use items from around your house. Halloween is really about creativity so just take these treat tubes in whatever creative direction you’re feeling.

I almost made those for the Fantasmorique Halloween swap...maybe next year. I was also thinking of cutting each tube in half to make them a bit smaller and then fill with candy and Halloween toys to give out to the smaller tots who come by. So cute!
