Make Pumpkin Candy pouches for Halloween or Thanksgiving and fill with favorite candies or toys.

Pumpkin Candy Pouches to fill with little treats or toys

I love making holidays special for my family and friends. And guess what? It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Just something small to show you’re thinking of them can add more meaning to the holiday to make it special and memorable. These Pumpkin Candy Pouches are easy to make and fun to fill with everyone’s favorite holiday candies or little toys. Kids will love them and adults too.

Supplies needed for Pumpkin Candy Pouches:

Pumpkin doilies  
Colored bakers twine
Candy or Toys

I found the pumpkin doilies at Dollar Tree and already had the bakers twine. If you can’t find the pumpkin doilies you can make your own by using thin orange paper and a small hole punch. Use a cutting machine or cut the pumpkin shape freehand. 

These are so simple to make and would be really great party favors and Halloween treats. They would also be great place cards for the kids table at Thanksgiving. I would write the kid’s name in the center of the pumpkin before filling with treats. Or use a letter stamps to make the name.

Are you ready to make the pumpkin pouches? Take 2 pumpkins and place them back sides together.

Cut enough twine to go around the pumpkin and to tie a bow on top. You could also use a thin ribbon or yarn. I like to use what I have available so you can do the same. They remind me of the sewing cards my kids had when they were younger.

Leave a little space open at the top to fill the pumpkins with candy or little gifts. I used candy corn this time. Make sure not to overfill the doilies or they could rip.

Continue sewing it up and tie a bow at the top. These are easy to make and fun to give! You can place them in a basket for a cute centerpiece until you’re ready to pass them out.

These would also be fun to pass out for a class Halloween party. You could also have the kids make them as one of the stations at the party and then take them home.

Have you started working on Halloween, Fall or Thanksgiving crafts yet? I made a goal to plan ahead and be more prepared for the holidays. So far so good and less stressful.

    This is a “sweet” idea…inexpensive…and would make a good favor or “thanksgiving” gift for delivery people, neighbors, guests…
