Supplies needed for these Halloween candy ideas:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore however a portion of your purchase will go to support this site. Also, some products may have been given to me free of charge, however, all projects and opinions are my own. The giveaway is sponsored by Cricut and they will handle all shipments.
- Cricut Cutting Machine (Want to see the difference between the machines? I compared the Cricut Maker and Explore here.)
- Green and black card stock
- Long skinny colorful candy
- Glue dots
- Cricut pen (I used the black fine tip)
- Witch legs design (click here to access on Design Space)
Start by cutting the witch dress and shoes from your card stock using your Cricut. The design is ready to cut just click “Make It”. You will have to insert a fine tip black pen into the appropriate slot to write the words. That is right! The Cricut will write the words and then cut your pieces all with one set up. Once you have a bunch of pieces cut, break out your glue dots.
You will need four glue dots per treat. Add two at one end of your candy and glue it to the dress as shown below. Add two more about 1/2 an inch down on the candy to hold it still. Again secure these to the dress.
Then to attach the feet, first use two glue dots to secure the package ends as shown below.
Then use two additional glue dots on top of that to add your feet.
If you have never used glue dots before, they are a non-permanent dry adhesive. So once your recipient receives these Halloween treat ideas, all they have to do is remove the dots with their finger. It is really easy, however, they are strong enough to hold together in a trick or treat bag.
Grab your supplies and get started on these Halloween candy ideas today. You will love the results and so with the littles!
You can actually substitute any colorful candy that you like for the leg portion. Look around for long skinny candy that will make the perfect witch legs. Then make your own Halloween candy ideas to impress the trick or treaters in your neighborhood.
Now are you ready to win that Cricut Maker? I thought so!
