Halloween Treat–Cotton Candy Cobwebs

I love coming up with simple ideas that ANYONE can recreate.  Everyone loves to get gifts!  They don’t have to be elaborate or expensive.  I think most people would agree that it is just nice to know that someone was thinking about them.  So it is a fun creative challenge for me to come up with simple, but fun gift ideas.  This Halloween I challenged myself to come up with a couple more Halloween gift ideas.  Today I am sharing with you this simple Halloween Treat–Creepy Cotton Candy Cobwebs.


Seriously people…these could NOT be any easier to make.

1.  Simply put some cotton candy in a cellophane gift package and add a couple of fake plastic spider rings.  My cellophane bags measured almost 4 inches in width and 9 inches in length.

2.  Then print the labels and cut them out around the black lines.

3.  Fold the label in half so that the words are on the front.

4.  Fold the top of the cellophane bags down and then staple the labels onto the bag near the bottom corners of the front label.

Need to find some of the items? You can find them here:

Cellophane Bags (Amazon)

Cotton Candy (Amazon) I have also seen it at Wal-Mart and Target and some grocery stores

Plastic Spiders (Amazon)


And that is it.  Really. Simple.  Now I should actually focus on something that really matters…like the kitchen…which could really use a good cleaning.

And now I am curious.  Do you participate in Halloween?  Do you hand out candy?  What candy do you usually hand out?

    Is Facebook the only way to get the printable? I am not on Facebook nor do I want to become a member of Facebook. Is there any other way to download your wonderful printables?

    Oh, thanks a lot. It sounds and looks really easy to make… And the spiders are so Halloween-like. As for candies I usually hand out I’ll tell you the following: Mike Ike, Skittles, Gummy bear, Lemon heads and M&Ms. But lately I’ve bought very nice Halloween fruit snacks and all the kids were very happy( we’ve tried them with my nephews). If you want some affordable candies you can try various lollipops, Tootsie rolls, bubble gums and sweet tarts. Whatever your taste is, try to think what children will like, not you :-)
