DIY Halloween candy bags are just as crucial on Halloween as Halloween decorations and pumpkins. There are, of course, many different variants: either mixed in a bucket (to take out yourself), which is optionally placed in front of the door. Or separately and nicely packaged sweets.
Last year I already showed you a lot of DIY ideas for candy packaging on Halloween, and of course, there is also a simple last-minute idea this year, how you can bag sweets very quickly.

DIY Halloween Packaging For Sweets With Freebie Craft Template For Gift Tags – Step-By-Step Instructions
1. Cut out the Freebie craft template
Download the PDF Freebie craft template (at the end of the blog post), print it out, and cut out the individual garland flags.
Tip: If you want to use them in plain white, print the gift tags directly on more substantial paper, such as watercolor paper.
2. Optional: Spice up with colored craft paper
Glue the cut out gift tags on a paper of your choice and cut them with a little edge. Like me, you can use a uniform color or combine different colors.
3. Attach and distribute sweets
Fill your paper bags with sweets, fold down the top flap, and fix them with a little tea or washi tape. Place your finished paper gift tags on the high side and punch them on the left and right. Then pull a ribbon from behind through the holes and tie the fabric as a bow on the front. Today, your trick or treat Halloween bags are ready!
