It is Halloween in 2 weeks from now, wow, how time flies when we are getting busy!!!! For this year’s Halloween Treat Bags, I made some easy bat treat boxes for the trick-or-treat Halloween treats for the visiting kids.
How To DIY Halloween Treat Bags
These bat-themed Halloween candy bags 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 candy 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.

- Bat wings I used this template
- Black card-stocks, 5″ x 4″ or you can use toilet paper roll and paint it to black
- White circle sticker, 1/2″ diameter, 2 pcs or use googly eyes
- Black marker or small black circle sticker (2 pcs.)
- White color pencil or marker
- All-purpose adhesive, clear. I used UHU
- Download: Bat template or you may create your own design and cut it out from black card stocks
- Gather and prepare the above-listed materials and supplies.
Download the bat template and cut it out as shown in Bats Flying Wall. I used the largest size of the wings.
Assemble the eyes using a white and black circle sticker. If you don’t have stickers, you can cut them out from white and black paper respectively.
I used 5″ x 4″ black card stock for the body but you can use toilet paper roll and paint it black.
- Draw a line 1/2″ from the edge of the 4″ side. Apply adhesive.
- Overlap 1/2″ and glue it to the other edge to make a paper tube.
Wait a while for it to dry.
- Press one end of the paper roll flat to get 2 crease line at the side.
- Press the other end but in a perpendicular direction to the first one.
- Slowly press the edge inward to form a curve. Repeat the same to the other side. Make sure both curves are similar and the flaps are able to close up the opening of the tube, as shown in the picture.
- Repeat the same to the other end to form the curve.
- Press and glue one end together to form a small bat treat box or pocket as shown in the picture.
- Attach the wings and eyes to the bat treat box by gluing them on it.
- Draw a mouth and give expression to the bat treat box with a white colored pencil or marker.
- Fill the bat treat box with candies and treats, close the flaps.
You can also make some smaller ones, add strings so that you can hang them on any place you want.
The bat treat boxes are waiting for the visiting kids to come for trick-or-treat activities.
