Halloween and Fall Candy Pouches Tutorial


This post contains affiliate links.

A couple days ago I posted about some yummy and fun fall treats, and in that post I made these fun candy pouches.  I had some people ask if I could expand the tutorial on how I made them, so I decided to make a full tutorial on how I made them!  These can be perfect for parties for favors or just to make and give to your kids.  They are super easy to make too!

This is how I made them:
Using my Silhouette,  I cut out 2 shapes that were the exact same size out of card stock.

Then with scissors, I cut out a hole in the middle of the shape.

Using my glue gun, I glued the full ghost onto the back of the sandwich bag.  I just glue the edges.

Then I put the M&Ms into the bag.  I used the candy corn kind, they have the yummy white.

I added some brown ones for eyes and a mouth and then placed the ghost with a hole in the middle on top of the sandwich bag.  Then I glued all the around the edge, making sure the M&Ms don't fall out.  The hot glue will melt the bag into the card stock, so the two pieces of card stock will stick together.

Here is what they look like all glued together.  I then trimmed the bag off.

And that's it!  Super easy and cute!  And of course yummy!

I have been using these as decorations too.  And when the season is over, I can enjoy a yummy treat :)!
