To begin the Candy Corn Treat Cups with Free Printable Ghost Tags, gather all supplies. A biodegradable peat pot was used for this craft because it won’t break if dropped, but you can use a paper Mache flowerpot, clay, or terra pot for this craft as well. I found these peat pots in packs fo four at Dollar Tree.
Paint the inside and base of the peat pot with Titanium White acrylic paint. Paint a center band of the pot with Jack-O-Lantern Orange acrylic paint. Paint the top band of the pot with Mustard Yellow acrylic paint. Since these peat pots are porous, apply a second coat of paint, and then set them aside to dry.
Using a standard 1/4″ hole punch, punch two holes opposite each other into both pots. Measure and cut two eight-inch lengths of black and white gingham ribbon. Fold the ends in and then thread through the holes. Straighten out the ribbon and then cut a notch in the ends with scissors. I love the finished look that ribbon notches provide but they also prevent the ribbon from fraying. Secure the ribbon ends in the holes with a dot of hot glue.
Download and print the FREE PRINTABLE GHOST TAGS below ⇓ onto white cardstock. Cut out with scissors and add faces to the blank tags with a permanent black marker like the MONO Twin from Tombow. Tie ribbons into small bows and attach them to the ghost tags with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add a note on the back of the ghost tag with a marker. I love the contrast that the purple and black ribbons give this project.
Attach the free printable ghost tags to the candy corn treat cups with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add crinkle paper to the treat cups and then add your favorite Halloween candy for a spooky sweet gift. Are you team YUM candy corn or team YUCK candy corn? I am team YUCK, so these will make perfect gifts!
