Easy and Silly Jack O’Lantern Rockets Halloween Treat Bags
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 we make 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:
- 8.5-by-11-inch card stock
- Scissors or Pinking Shears
- Double Sided Tape
- Brown or Green Floral Wire (cloth covered OK too)
- Assorted Rockets Halloween Candy
- Clear cellophane
- Clear elastics
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 8½-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.
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.
Step 5: Wrap the Stem
Once you add the wire stem, you are done! Get ready to hand these out to your neighborhood kids, your kid’s classrooms or as Halloween Party favors!

I love the double lollies but my boys like the giant rockets or the regular size ones. Since they have allergies rockets are one of the few candies they can eat so the totally ROCK at our house! (and they are what I exchange a lot of their halloween candy for)
