I enjoy making gifts for my family and friends. Gifts show them that I care enough to think of them and make a handmade gift. But I’m a busy mom of three, wife and small business owner. I don’t have time for elaborate, complicated gifts. So, I’ve become the queen of cute, but super easy gifts. This Halloween craft of a ghost candy wrapper is one of my favorite small gifts. They’re great for party favors, gifts for coworkers, classroom gifts, classroom activities, to include in college care packages and to give out to trick-or-treaters.
If you’re a friend of Organized 31, you know how much I enjoy making Halloween crafts and treats. I often include them in college care packages.

Movie Theater Box Candy – Flavor of Your Choice
White Cardstock Paper – Using heavier weight paper is important so that your ghost stands out crisply from the box and holds its shape.
Black Cardstock Paper – You could use black construction paper if you already have it, but cardstock paper makes a better presentation.
1 1/4″ Circle Hole Punch – You could use scissors to cut circles, but the hole punch makes it much easier, especially if you’ll be making a lot of these ghost candy wrappers.
Googly Eyes – You can use any size googly eyes. Different sizes create different expressions, so it’s fun to have a variety pack of googly eye sizes to choose from.
Craft Glue – You can use any quick drying craft glue, but this is my favorite. It’s easy to apply and dries clear.
Halloween Craft Steps
Using the white cardstock paper, cut a ghost shape out that is slightly larger than the box of candy. I freehand cut each one out, but if you’ll be making a bunch of these Halloween treats, you may want to create a pattern to use.
Cut a strip of white paper approximately inch wide and long enough to wrap entirely around the box of candy.
Punch two eye sockets out of the black cardstock paper.
Attach the black cardstock eyes and the googly eyes with the craft glue.
Wrap the strip of paper around the box of candy and crease the paper strip on each box corner.
Wrap the strip of paper around the box of candy and attach the ghost with the craft glue. The strip of paper should slide freely on the box of candy. This allows you to open the candy without damaging the ghost.
Aren’t these ghost candy wrappers just too adorable?! It’s such an easy Halloween craft that you could easily make it with school-aged children.
