DIY Your Own Candy Wrappers for Halloween!

Happy Halloween friends, hope your day is filled with candy, chocolate and all the sweeness!

I couldn’t think a better way to celebrate the spookiest month of the year than crafting something cute, very Maca-Halloween-style. If you’re a packaging lover as me, your heart will be happy to follow this tutorial today, where you’ll learn how to DIY your own candy wrappers using old paper scraps. 

Let’s do it.

materials required: 

  • Any paper of your choice 
  • Paper crimper (I got this one and couldn’t love it more)
  • Scissors
  • Zig zag scissors (loved this one)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Cricut vinyl 
  • Cricut Machine 
  • Your favourite candy 

Step one: Measuring & cutting

Firstly, measure the length you want your candy wrappers to be and cut small squares using your favourite paper. As soon as you have all your paper squares ready, grab your candy!

Step two: Fill the wrappers

Flip the paper down and pour your candy on top in the middle of the square. Fold the paper (like a gift) and add a bit of hot glue to close both ends.

Step three: Add details to the wrappers

Now, let’s use the paper crimper to add a decorative edge to both flat ends by pressing it like a roller, you will LOVE this step! After you finish, cut the edges with the zig zag scissors.


Step Four: Add little vinyl ghosts 

To finish off this project, I used my Cricut machine to make these adorable pink ghosts in vinyl. Just place them in front side and voila! we did it!
