DIY Pumpkin Party Favors

I created these cute little pumpkin party favors last Halloween for my son’s preschool class. They were a big hit among the 3- year olds, but I think they are cute enough that any age would appreciate them!

You can fill them with Halloween treats and goodies, or opt for a healthier snack. I used my Silhouette machine to cut them out, but don’t fear. If you don’t have one, I have a tutorial below.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Orange, brown, and green cardstock
  • Exacto knife or Silhouette digital craft cutter
  • Stapler or Glue
  • Silhouette Pumpkin Party Favor Template – download it at the bottom of this post!
  • Plastic bags filled with candy or snacks

HOW TO MAKE PAPER PUMPKIN PARTY FAVORS:

  1. If you are using a Silhouette, download the template above and use your craft cutter to cut. Then skip to step 4.
  2. If you are cutting by hand, measure a piece of orange cardstock to be 3.5″ wide by 9.75″ long, approximately.    This is what you are creating:                                                               pumpkin-party-favor-template
  3. Then cut a jack-o-lantern face out of the cardstock or draw one on.
  4. Fold the pumpkin so that the middle section is about 2 inches long. You want it big enough so that the pumpkin will stand up by itself.
  5. Cut a small piece of brown paper to resemble a stem. Roll up a thin piece of green paper to resemble the other part of the stem.
  6. Attach the candy bag, stem pieces and secure with a staple, like this:
