DIY Teddy Bear Halloween Treat Boxes (with Templates)

DIY Teddy Bear Halloween Treat Boxes (with Templates)

I love Halloween as much as anybody else, but I always like the “cute” side of it (pumpkins, fun costumes, cartoony ghosts) aspects of it rather than the scary/gory/haunted house element.

And, of course, the candy.

If you’re looking for a cute-not-scary way to pack up your candy, these teddy bear box templates are perfect for you.

Just print out on cardstock, fill, and fold, and — Ta-da! You’ve got adorable little treat packages for party favors and trick-or-treaters.

 

Halloween Goodie Bag Fillers

Looking for treats instead of — or in addition to — candy?

Little toys that glow in the dark, like wands and rings, are cheap and easy. (Not to mention helpful to have when you’re trick-or-treating.

There are also several goodie bag fillers over on Amazon that can fill the bill, from wind-up toys to plastic spiders to mini orange Slinkies.
