Can you believe it’s October? I see friends already decorating for Halloween. So this month’s craft is a very simple Halloween egg carton treat boxes, that kids will love, and that costs very little since you probably already have egg cartons in your recycling bin!
I have to admit to being a bit of a hoarder. Not in the ‘I should be on that television show’ kind of hoarder, but I save everything I possibly can for future craft projects; from egg cartons, to pieces of cardboard that come in parcels, and of course tin cans and jars. I also have containers filled with tiny pieces of ribbons, yarn, and paper scraps. One day I’ll be able to put it all to good use.
With that in mind this craft project cost me nothing out of pocket, but we’ve included links to supplies below in case you aren’t a hoarder like me.

Halloween Treat boxes
The mouths happen quite naturally as egg cups tend to have lower points on the sides, so I used those to make the mouths on a couple, but I thought the jack o'lantern looked more fun with a straight mouth.
Now fill the bottom of your treat box. If you don't want to fill with candy, head to your local big box store and purchase the multi-packs of items such as small bubble blowers, spider rings, Halloween stamps, and other assorted toys that you find in the Halloween department.
Once you have filled the base, pop the head on, and tie a scrap of ribbon around him, knotting it at the top.
Hope you enjoy making these as much as we did!
