How to Make a Pumpkin That Holds Treats

Arch-host explains how to make a simple Halloween treat holder using tissue paper, a chenille stem, and candy. A super classroom treat idea!

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 10 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Cut two 6-inch squares out of the tissue paper. Lay them on top of each other on your work surface. Place a few pieces of candy in the center of the square and gather the tissue paper loosly around the candy. You want to tissue paper around the candy to look rounded, like a pumpkin. Wrap the center of the chenille stem around the top - gathered part - of the pumpkin to hold the pumpkin closed and to form the stem. Wrap the ends of the chenille stem around a pencil or similar tool to make it look like a spiraled vine!

Six-inches is a good size you use for just a couple of small candies, if you are using more or larger candies experiment with different sizes of tissue paper squares.
