Fun Non Candy Halloween Treats to Make Today

I love fall and Halloween. I enjoy watching the leaves change colors on the trees and I love the way the local farms decorate with hay bales, scarecrows and piles of pumpkins. The air gets a little bit more crisp and you can smell the change of the seasons. As much as I enjoy Halloween, I am really more into the pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns than I am the witches and vampires. I like cute Halloween decorations and avoid the really scary ones.

Fun Non Candy Halloween Treats to Make

Of course, if you ask the kids, they’ll tell you that their favorite part of Halloween is the candy.  They bring home so much of it that I have been trying to think of some fun non candy Halloween treats. They only need so much candy and I know that I certainly don’t want it in the house tempting me.  I found this really cute Punkin’ Treat Pouch craft in Felt-o-ween: 40 scary-cute projects to celebrate Halloween.  There are lots of cute Halloween projects you can make from felt in this book.

These Punkin’ Treat Pouches are very easy to make and require only a few simple craft supplies.

Non candy Halloween treats to make


  • Sheets of orange, black and green felt. However many you need to satisfy the number of trick or treaters you get at your house.
  • Yellow and black embroidery floss
  • Scissors
  • Fun things to stuff into the pouches – stickers, Boogie Wipes, mini pens, spider rings, lip balm, etc. If you want to add a small piece of candy, you can certainly do that too.


  • Trace the circles making them large enough to accommodate whatever you want them to hold. There is a template in the book or just make a circle yourself.
  • Cut out one front and two backs. The front is a full circle. The back is a circle cut in half (both pieces).
  • Cut out the stem from green felt.
  • Cut out the eyes, nose and mouth from black felt.
  • Stitch the black face pieces onto the front of the full orange circle using black embroidery floss.

Non candy Halloween treats to make

  • Place the pumpkin face down and place the two half pieces on the back so that they line up and the center edges overlap slightly.
  • Place the stem piece in between the front and back pieces at the top of the pumpkin.
  • Pin the layers in place and stitch around the pumpkin using 6 strands of yellow embroidery floss. Make sure you stitch the stem in place.
  • Fill the pouch with treats.

These would be so great for something like that!
