Looking for a way to dress up a batch of Halloween candy with just a handful of supplies?  Try these easy candy bar wrappers…they would work great as an autumn neighbor or office gift as well!

Easy Halloween Candy Bar Wrappers by Annie Williams - Background Stamping

Start by trimming a piece of cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ for each candy bar (these measurements are for standard size Hershey bars with almonds and may need to be adjusted for other types).  Here I’ve stamped a gingham background pattern (My Favorite Things) in similar ink colors on Lemon Drop and Orange Fizz Pop Tones Cardstock and Light Brown Basis Cardstock for a tone-on-tone effect.

Add a decorative edge to the shorter sides of the cardstock with a border die (Pretty Pink Posh) or shallow punch if desired.

Wrap the cardstock around the candy bar loosely and adhere in the back with a strong adhesive such as Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  Add a strip or two of wide ribbon around the center to embellish.  In order to hide the adhesive on my ribbon band, I ran the thinner lace ribbon through my Xyron machine before layering it onto the burlap.

Stamp pumpkins from the “Pick-a-Pumpkin” stamp set by Newton’s Nook Designs in autumn colors onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Die-cut the images with the coordinating dies or fussy-cut and leave a small white border.

Adhere the pumpkins to the center of the candy bar wrapper using a couple of foam tabs for dimension.

  4. What a cute idea. These would be fun favors for a fall party. Also just using the burlap band and pumpkin–great for napkin rings. Definitely filing this ida.
