Eek! Halloween is only 8 days away! If you’re still looking for ideas for what to give as a neighbor gift or to bring to your Halloween party hostess then look no further. The Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club has saved the day with their absolutely adorable Boo Bat treat holders.
These cute little guys also make for a fun afternoon crafting with the littles and their friends will just love to receive such a festive favor… and enjoy the candy inside, of course! ;)
I am a craft hoarder and actually have a stash of empty toilet paper rolls in my craft closet because a crafter never knows when she will need to use one… or three or four! ;) If you aren’t a craft hoarder don’t have any toilet paper rolls on hand, your local Dollar Tree is sure to have a pack of toilet paper for just $1! (Psst! If you want to be a super cool mom or dad, give the kids the pack of toilet paper rolls and let THEM unravel it!) While at Dollar Tree, be sure to snag the rest of the supplies to make these cute treat holders. You will need:
- Elmers school glue (or like glue)
- Paint brush
- Scissors, (the ones with the pink handle are my fave!)
- Construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Empty toilet paper rolls, of course!
Check out the full tutorial at Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club. Note that I swapped scrapbook paper in Halloween hues instead of construction paper and wrapped my bats in coordinating paper instead of painting.
Had I painted I would have added some stripes or polka dots; Dollar Tree has a variety of paints in black, white and orange so be creative! I am just loving the back of these cute bats- when you turn them over they look like they are flying away into the evening to scare little trick-or-treaters! ;)
