How To Make Easy DIY Halloween Spooky Spider Treat Bags

Spooky Spider Treat Bags

Since my kids don’t like to cook with me (I’m so bummed) so I wanted to come up with a craft they would enjoy. They really had fun working with me on this project (maybe because there was a glue gun involved?) to create these adorable Halloween Spooky Spider Treat Bags. They are decorative as well as a charming way to give out as treats. Use these spooky spiders as table decorations around a pumpkin centerpiece or on top of each plate at a table setting for a kids’ Halloween party. Set them all on a white tray and let kid’s choose their own spider shaped treat! No two of these will be exactly alike, so its fun to let them pick one!

These spooky spider treat bags are a perfect presentation for teachers’ gifts, too. Or surprise your co-workers and place one on each of their desks before they get to work. Who wouldn’t love one? There’s a little kid in all of us.

Easy DIY Halloween Project

This Halloween project is super easy and I was able to purchase practically everything I needed at Target and found the black pipe cleaners and tulle at Michael’s. You can also try Walmart and other superstores or drugstores if you prefer. Or order online with the links I provided below. Additionally they are a perfect no-bake treat.

Spend Quality Family Time

And you can spend some quality family time together and have a lot of laughs while you make them. Depending on their ages, your kids will love to watch or they can participate, too. My sons and I discussed that most insects have 6 legs but spiders have 8, and got into a big conversation about bugs and spiders. I was “the glue gun master” for my family because gluing the spider’s eyes on was the only part of the process where I wanted “quality control” over the project. That made us laugh even more as we created our own assembly line.

Reese’s Pieces and Other Candies

You can use other small round candies like M&Ms or Skittles but I like using Reese’s Pieces because the colors are more festive for Halloween. And they are a little less likely to melt than chocolate. Other candies do come out with Halloween colors this time of year so you can be on the look-out for other options. I considered candy corn (because I love it) but the shape is too pointy! Round or pebble shape candies with coated shells work best to make these treat bags.

1.  Start by laying a 12” piece of tulle on a flat surface. Pour about ¼ cup of Reese’s Pieces candy in the center. Pull all of the sides up together and tie a clear hair elastic around the tulle. Wrap around a couple of times so it creates a tight closure – ensuring none of the candy is able to fall out. Trim off most of the excess tulle.

3. Bend and shape each piece into a spider leg. Push one leg through the side of the treat bag to create a small hole. Add three more pipe cleaner spider legs into the same hole. Repeat this process for the opposite side so all eight spider legs are attached to the treat bag.

4.  Next, use a hot glue gun or glue dots to add two wiggle eyes to the front of the bag. You want to be sure not to get any glue on the candy. You can do this by carefully pulling the tulle away from the candy and adding each eye – allowing the glue to dry before letting the tulle snap back into place.

5.  Repeat this process until you have as many treat bags as you need.
