Halloween Candy Bar Covers

Posted by  ·  October 27, 2011  ·  Last Updated: October 27, 2011

I had some exciting news this month! My candy bar covers were featured in Woman’s Day!

Woman’s Day asked if I would do a couple of new designs so I added a ghost and a Dracula.

Here are the files if you would like to make some!

Bat Candy Bar Cover PDF

Dracula Candy Bar Cover PDF

Ghost Candy Bar Cover PDF

To make the bat, trace this template onto black construction paper or card stock and cut out. For the Dracula print on purple or green card stock and for ghost, print white card stock and cut out.

Tape the edges of candy bar wrappers to the undersides and tape the bars onto the cutouts. Glue on googly eyes, fold the paper up and fasten with a glue dot or double stick tape so the cover is easy for kids to RIP off.

You might like mini bats which are perfect for classroom treats and are a cinch to cut out on a cutting machine like the Silhouette.

A Silhouette does make quick work of this little project. I use a Mac so I cut them from a PDF. I think if you have a PC you cut from a JPEG, so I have included both versions.

I also have a download for a little greeting that fits inside!

Go check out my dear friend Kami of No Biggie. Her fabulous “Spooky Mirror” was in the issue also!

    I just found these on Pinterest, they are adorable! We have a set of quadruplets in our neighborhood that I always make a special Halloween treat for, and this is perfect! I'll be the hit of the 'hood this year.

    I'm doing this for my sons classroom but I'm not seeing the greeting printout for the full sized candy bars. Was wondering if there was one?

    I love these candy bar covers and have used them for several years as a treat for the grandkids classes, but I had to dress them up a little so I put a bead of glitter glue along the edge. I fold them to fit the candy bar and on both sides of that flap I put the glitter. Purple on Dracula, dark blue on the bat, green on the witch and silver or iridescent white on the ghost. Just makes them show up a little more. Thanks...

    I was looking for Halloween themed money holders to send a Halloween treat to my nephews who live on the opposite coast. I wasn't able to find any, but my Aunt shared your post on Facebook and I used these. They worked perfectly! I just cut a slit at the base of the head and used a paper clip to hold the money. I have three nephews so I was able to use all three designs. Thank you so much for your hard work in making these and making them available to the rest of us.

    I'm not finding the full-sized bat - the links all duplicate the dracula template.
