DIY Pumpkin and Mummy Halloween Candy Bags

Sharing is caring!

Combine the textures and natural elements of the fall into these fun DIY Halloween Candy Bags. These cute, DIY Halloween candy bags are so easy to make from household and inexpensive items. The pumpkin and mummy are made out of a cut paper tube and attached to the gift bag so faces lift off the bag to give them a 3-dimensional look.

I love using burlap to accent fall and Halloween gift wrap and goodie bags. Burlap is very inexpensive and can be purchased by the yard at the craft store in multiple arrays of colors. You would only need a small piece for this design. It can easily be cut and edges frayed to decorate with a rustic, harvest flair.

Not only can Burlap be used to accent gift wrapping and crafts but can also be placed under decorative accents on an entry table dining table. Here I used burlap on my fall gift wrap design How to Wrap a Bottle of Wine for Thanksgiving.

Rather than using tissue paper to fill the bags, corn husks are used to add natural, fall elements to the presentation. These fun Halloween treat bag ideas are a perfect gift for friends, teachers, adults, and kids! Here are some more of my DIY Halloween Candy Bag Ideas.

These Halloween Gift Bags would look great next to my DIY Halloween Black Cat Decoration.
