We’re getting very close to the big day (for some of us the best day of the year), Halloween.
I’ve been very busy making decorations for this spooky event, but I didn’t pay mush attention to making treat boxes and such, so I decided to look around and see if I could find some fun Halloween Freebies to use – and boy was I in luck.
This fun and festive Halloween Card is a freebie from Dreaming Tree and awesome for both kids and adults.
I made it with AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWVs “Curiosities” (the stocking) and a piece of Black gloss paper from DCWVs “Black, White, Cream” stack (dress and heal of boot).
I don’t have any stamps to add a sentiment to the card so I just left it empty. It gives me the opportunity to use it for a birthday instead.
I really love the matching envelope too made in AC Cardstock.
Witch Hat Treat Cone
This next freebie is also from Dreaming Tree.
The Witch Hat Treat Cone is a genius little treat holder/decoration and I made it with AC Cardstock and DCWVs “Witches Brew” stack paper. The buckle is made from Tim Holtz’ Metallic Kraft paper in gold.
Unfortunately I did not have any string with wire in it, so I use a piece of Ideaology tinsel ribbon for the handle.
Gravestone Treat Box
This spooky freebie is from Simply Crafty Svgs.
The Gravestone Treat Box could also double as decoration and is very easy to make.
I used Bazzill Bling Cardstock in Tungsten and DCWVs “Ghost Stories” paper along with two tiny red gems for the spiders eyes.
I also used Distress ink for all edges and a distress tool for the panel edges for a more sinister look.
Creepy Coffin Box
These two Creepy Coffin Boxes are also from Simply Crafty Svgs and they are in the same freebie file. It’s simply just a matter of switching out the front panel of the box.
One is with a spiderweb and this is made from AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWVs “Curiosities” along with black pearl paper for the spider.
I also used a black Prima Gem for the spiders butt and Prima White Chalk ink for all the edges.
The box with the cross is made from AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWVs “Ghost Stories” stack.
I also used a cross shapes rhinestone figure from my humongous stash and inked all edges with the same white Prima Chalk Ink.
Both front panels are attached with 3D glue Dots to give some more dimension.
Black Cat Treat Box
This spooky Black Cat Treat Box is, like the two previous freebies, from Simply Crafty Svgs and what a charmer!
I made it with AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWVs “Curiosities” stack.
I used a white Sharpie to highlight the nose, ears and eyes and used some floss for the whiskers.
I used Distress Ink and Chalk Ink for the edges.
I thought I was being a genius and use acetate for the mouth opening…..that is until I saw that Sandy from Simply Crafty Svgs already did that with hers 😀 So much for being brilliant LOL!
Teal Pumpkin Box
….in orange 😀
As Mary from SVG Cuts, the designer of this adorable little Pumpkin Box, explains on her blog, this box (originally made in a teal color) lets people know that you have non-food treats to give to Trick or Treaters. What a great idea! No questions on whether you are allergic or sensitive to sugar….and believe me….those kiddos get more that enough sugar for a lifetime on a Halloween night 😀
I made mine in orange AC Cardstock and teal vellum. All edges are inked with Distress Ink and I used a tiny piece of ribbon to tie it together on top.
I will use mine as a little luminary but small treats – non-food or otherwise – are perfect inside too.
This rather simple Spiderweb Doily is actually very usable. Used in the original size it’s a great place mat and decoration for the wall. If you downsize it, you can use it for coasters or for a Halloween card.
I chose to use it as a place mat and I cut it out of AC Cardstock and inked it with Chalk Ink.
Imagine a dining table with these and lots of creepy food – perfect!
(the Pumpkin Spice Latté was very delicious 😉 )
Thanks for joining me today. I really hope I inspired you to find and make some of these great Halloween freebies. Please let me know in a comment below.
They are all very easy to make and they are the perfect occasion to use up some of all your Halloween paper scraps.
So this is the end of my Halloween makings for this year – but you know that I never miss the chance to Halloweenify anything so one may never know 😉
