Easy and Silly Jack O’Lantern Rockets Halloween Treat Bags

Jack O' Lantern Rockets candy craft.

Super Easy Rockets Treat Bags!

They kind of, well, rock. That’s right folks, you know when you see Rockets Candy in stores and simply pick up the bag, you can smell that delicious and most nostalgic smell through the bag. Well, when you do that, you know Halloween is right around the corner!

Fun fact: Did you know that in the US, Rockets are called Smarties? Last year, I visited my cousins in Florida and decided to bring them our version of Smarties since they’ve never tried them!

Every year my husband and I love making things for Gabby’s class. Almost always, we send along Halloween themed cupcakes and treats if the teacher allows. I had the opportunity to make a simple, easy and quite tasty I might add, craft. One that ANYONE can make!

You Will Need:

Step 1: Print and Cut

First thing is first, get your hands on some delicious Rockets! You can find them at your local Dollarama, Walmart and Costco. Next, you simply print out this Jack O’ Lantern clip art on a 8Β½-by-11-inch card stock and print it out. That way they are thick enough to be sturdy enough to hold your Rockets treats!

Cut out your Silly Rockets Jack O’ Lanterns and if you’d like a more funky shape, use the pinking shears to cut the top of the Jacks. I decided to leave mine straight.

Step 2: Cut Cellophane, Secure, and Wrap

Normally using cellophane bags would be the easy route but since Rockets come in all fun sizes, you have to custom make the baggies. So, cut out the cellophane in squares that match the height and width of your Rockets treats. Secure the treats by using an elastic, it won’t be seen since it will be covered. Place treats in the center of the square and gather it to the top until you’ve made a closed and secure bag over the Rockets Candy. Use a clear elastic to secure the bag.

Step 3: Tape it, Place it and Do a Wrap Around

Once you have finished your treat bags, grab your double sided tape and attach a piece that runs the length of the Jack O’ Lantern and place the treat bag in the center, then wrap the two ends around the bag so that both ends line up neatly in the back.

A wire is wrapped around a pencil to shape it into a vine.

Step 4: Wind it UP

Grab your pencil, floral wire and start winding your wire around the pencil, remove the wire and stretch it out to your liking. Place the wire around the top of the bag covering the clear elastic.
