Halloween Crackers

Trick-or-treaters will arrive at your door in droves when you put a new twist on a traditional Christmas treat and create Halloween crackers.

Introduction

Save your paper-towel holders to make candy-toting tubes.

Materials

  • Paper-towel roll, cut in half
  • Crepe paper in assorted colors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Plastic spider rings
  • Assorted candies, such as jellybeans, sour balls, and candy corn

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Center a paper-towel roll at the top of an 11-by-9 1/2-inch piece of crepe paper, and attach with double-sided tape. Roll the paper around the paper-towel roll, and tape the edge of the paper.

  2. Step 2

    Gather the crepe paper on one end. Cut a piece of a plastic spider ring off, and loop it around the gathered paper to hold.

  3. Step 3

    Fill the roll with assorted candies, and gather the paper on the other end. Secure with spider ring.
