Do you love everything about Halloween? The dressing up in costumes, decorating your yard to the nines, getting ready to hand out treats to all the little ghosts and goblins that make their way through your eerie yard and up to your door?

I sure do. Halloween is pretty much on the top of the list for my favorite time of the year (maybe right behind Christmas). So the idea of going all out and giving everyone a great experience is always on the top of my mind. This year I decided that the BIG bags of my own favorite candy, Hershey’s variety bags, are perfect giving out an amazing treat to trick or treaters.

But I can’t just hand out candy any old way. Oh no. I need to add a little pizzaz to what we hand out — and it is so easy that you can do it too and be the hit of the block when trick or treaters stop by. Everyone will be talking about how your house is the one to go to!

DIY Trick or Treat Bags with Free Personalized Printable

Step 1) The first thing, of course, is to head to Walmart where you can find an amazing selection of the Hershey’s variety bags (as if anything is better than a Kit-Kat or miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups).

Grab your favorite candy along with some treat bags of your choice. I just use some simple cellophane or plastic treat bags with a cute design on one side. I also grab a few of the creepy crawlies, like plastic spider rings, from the Halloween section. The kids love getting fun little surprises along with their candy!

Step 2) When you are ready to assemble your bags (I say start working on these at least a week in advance so you don’t have to do it all at once) simply fill each bag with 3-4 pieces of candy, add a creepy crawly or two, and any other fun surprises you would like to add. My whole family got in on the action and we each added an item or two to the bags as we passed them on down the line. 

Filling Candy Bags

What we added to our bags:

  • Jolly Rancher suckers
  • Twizzlers
  • Kit Kat
  • Reese’s Miniature Cups
  • Spider, bat, or skull plastic ring
  • Halloween stickers

Step 3) Once the bags are filled to your liking you get to add a little special touch with a personalized tag. I created this cute printable that you can simply staple to the top of each bag. It not only seals the bags closed, but it is a fun little touch to give the kids an extra smile.

Here is what mine looks like:

If you would like to download this for yourself you can do so. I’ve left the name portion editable so that you can fill in your own name and print it, or you can print it without the name and write it in. Download this free printable here: Halloween Gift Tag.

(NOTE): There are six tags per sheet. The Eek text is meant to be upside down so you can fold it over your gift bags and have your name on one side and the Eek text on the other. It should look like this on the front and back when you are completed:

This is actually a pretty simple little activity to make Halloween just a bit more enjoyable. It is great for you and your family, who get to spend some time together filling the bags, and for those who receive these wonderful bags full of goodies!

    These are so cute. When I was younger I used to love making homemade gift treat bags for my friends. My mom and I made our own candy so it was really fun.

    I really like the Halloween season, but I don’t really go all out and celebrate it like I should. This year, I would like to make a ‘You’ve Been Booed’ for my nephew. I’m running out of time.
