31 Days :: Preparing for Halloween by Making Trick-or-Treat Favors - Day 17

Well, today is our last day of Halloween preparation. We've shared how we prepared our home for Halloween, some great pumpkin ideas, Halloween curb appeal inspiration, wreath ideas we love, decorative elements to create beautiful Halloween displays, tips for Halloween entertaining, our favorite tried and true party treats and to round things out, today we're sharing fun favors and ways to package those Halloween goodies.

Halloween Crackers are easy to make and offer a myriad of ways to customize treats.  Hop over here for the tutorial.
Who doesn't love a lollipop? Turn them into something special with this lollipop broomstick tutorial.
Paper bags are inexpensive alternatives for trick-or-treat packaging. Run them through the printer with your favorite Halloween scene, add ribbon to close and you have an elegant to-go gift for guests. Beth from It Is What It Is shows you how.

Create natural burlap goodie bags embellished with dots and ribbon. A simple craft with lots of appeal.

We love these witch broom favor bags!! Twine and a sticks turn simple paper sacks into bewitching fun favors sure to please.  Click here to learn how to make your own!

Pumpkin stick favors add a little something special to your display. You can also use pencils in place of sticks for a functional gift.

Instead of having the huge bowl of candy for trick-or-treaters to dig through, try handing out tissue paper pumpkins filled with treats instead. They're fund to make and it's a neat surprise for the little ones to open when they get back home.

And so there you have it! Everything you need to make sure your home is prepared for a haunting Halloween good time!
