When I think of Halloween, I think of CANDY! My absolute favorite candy is, well, anything chocolate. I love to think of new and unique ideas to hand out candy every year. This year, my little one started in kindergarten, so of course, we had to make the candy class friendly too. I wanted something that was not only cute but also fillable so that I could fill it with different types of candy and add a name to it as well. Once I knew what I wanted to make, I found the most adorable bat design. These batty treat containers would make great goodie treats for any Halloween party. I will be completely honest and say that my little one went crazy when she saw them. She instantly had to sample the treats to ensure that her friends would approve!

Supplies Needed:

Step One: Set Up The Design

  1. Begin by spray painting the round metal tins black. Once you have done that, you will want to let them sit for a day or so to cure.
  2. Select the Page Setup window (this icon can be found on the toolbar on the right-hand side of your page) and adjust your width and height to the dimension of your machine.
  3. Open Design ID #32220 in Silhouette Studio® by locating it in your library.
  4. Adjust the size of the design by selecting it and dragging the outer corner to make it larger or smaller. The design will need to fit your container of choice.
  5. Now that the bat is to size, I made a circle and placed it in the center of the bat so that I could see the candy inside.

Step Two: Cut And Assemble

  1. Now that your design is set up and ready to go, it is time to cut. Place the bat eyes off to the side and cut the bat out of black cardstock. Once the bats are cut out, take the white vinyl and cut out the eyes.
  2. Once all the pieces are cut, begin to place each bat carefully onto your round tin tops using either glue dots or a hot glue gun.
  3. Once you have done that, take the eyes and place them on your bat.
  4. Finally, you can fill your adorable bat tummies full of candy.

These are simple to make, and the cute factor is to die for!

What’s your favorite Halloween candy?!
