DIY Trick-or-Treat Bag

Make Halloween special for your kids with this DIY Trick-or-Treat Bag.

When I was growing up, my mom always said that her favorite holiday was Halloween.

Although I loved Halloween, I never really understood this.

Now that I’m the mom, I do.

All other holidays seem to add an endless stream of tasks to my to-do list.

But Halloween is easy.

Order costumes, buy candy and take the kids trick-or-treating.

Of course, you need to make sure you get enough candy, especially when you live in a neighborhood full of kids!

Who else has ever run out of candy on Halloween? It happened to me once, and I felt terrible. I vowed to never let it happen again.

Good thing Nestlé has me covered! Their Jumbo Variety Bags offer piece counts as high as 450 pieces, with a variety of sizes and assortments of treats that trick-or-treaters of all ages will love. This means you can buy candy for the whole neighborhood without breaking the bank.

It is easy to pick up one of the Jumbo Variety Bags from Nestlé at retailers nationwide for all of your favorite chocolate and sweet treats. They include treats from brands that kids love like Butterfinger, Nestlé Crunch, Baby Ruth, SweeTARTS, Nerds, & Laffy Taffy.

We love chocolate around here, so we love the Chocolate Classics Variety Bag which includes 230 bite-sized chocolate favorites from Nestlé Crunch, Baby Ruth, Butterfinger and Nestlé Milk Chocolate. All of them are free from artificial flavors and colors.

Just because I don’t HAVE to do anything for Halloween, doesn’t mean I don’t want to. This year, I decided to make the kids a DIY Trick-or-Treat Bag. Even though I’m most definitely not a crafty person, these Trick-or-Treat Bags were so easy to make. They got all of us in the mood to celebrate the season!

DIY Trick-or-Treat Bag


1 Plain Craft Pumpkin
Black Paint
Paint Brush
Circle Stencil (or you can freehand)
Large Craft Needle
Craft Twine
Assorted Small Halloween Decorations
Nestlé Halloween Candy – from the Chocolate Classics Variety Bag


Paint or stencil black circles around the pumpkin. Use any pattern you like! (It is fun to let the kids get involved in this, assuming you are not a perfectionist!)

While the paint dries, thread the craft twine on the needle.

To create the garland, thread one of the small Halloween Decorations with the twine, follow by four pieces of Nestlé Halloween candy.

Repeat, alternating the decorations if desired.

Once the paint is dry, place velcro stickers around the top of the pumpkin. Stick the other side to the back of every fourth candy bar. Attach!
