treatsFall is my favorite time of year! The leaves are falling, the children are wandering the neighborhood as pirates and princesses, and there are so many great treats to be made! Yum…I can already smell the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies baking! So while I’ve got treats on my mind, I figured I could share a few ways to have fun dressing up your Halloween treats this year!

Below you’ll find a few simple ideas for making your Halloween treats extra special –as well as links to products and supplies that can help you to cut down on the time!

 

 

Coffin Treat Boxes

These foldable paper boxes are the perfect size for a handful of treats for your trick-or-treaters or for your child’s class and they are oh so much fun to decorate!

Personalized Treat Tags

Adorning your treats with a personalized tag, is a great way to let your neighbors and friends know that your homemade treats are safe for their lil’ pumpkins!
