There’s a plethora of gift bags & boxes out there in a Halloween theme - and these are certainly not ‘trendy’... Any snack composed of small morsels works well packaged up in this bright ball resembling a pumpkin fresh from the patch. This also works well as an apple - just change the tissue paper to red.
This sweet little unassuming container will hold just about anything - muddy buddies, trail mix, popcorn, roasted nuts, cracker jack - just choose a favorite.
No new craft trend involved either - just pipe cleaners and tissue paper right from your elementary school days. As I was making these I could almost feel my grade school teachers looking over my shoulder and smiling.
If you can cut, twist, and tie a knot - you can quickly make one to give away to a coworker, a grandchild, your Primary or Young Women’s class, or someone you visit teach.
This isn’t just for the month of October either - see how easily you can make a bowl of ‘apples’ using the same idea.
