Bat Treat Boxes

diy bat treat box

It is Halloween in 2 weeks from now, wow, how time flies when we are getting busy!!!! This year I made some easy bat treat boxes for the trick-or-treat Halloween treats for the visiting kids.

These bat-themed Halloween treat boxes are easy and quick to make. All you need are some black card stock, paper eyes, or googly eyes and glue. To save your time, I also included the template of the bat wings for you to download and print. If you did the Bats Flying Wall tutorial I shared last year and still keep the bat wings with you, it is time to bring them out to turn them into the bat treat boxes. If you prefer, you can always draw your own bat wings 🙂

As for the treat box idea, I used a piece of rectangle black card stock. Just roll it into a tube then press both ends to make curved flaps. For another material idea, you may use a toilet paper roll and paint it black.

Attach eyes and draw some expressions for the bat to give individual character to the Halloween treat boxes.
