DIY Halloween Party Favor Pencils
Halloween. Trick or Treating. Candy GALORE.
A little bit of candy is ok, but we end up getting so much from friends, family, trick or treating, and classroom parties! I will not be contributing to the sugar rush this year, so I decided to make these DIY Halloween party favor pencils for my kids to give out at school.
The best favors for Halloween treat bags!
These favors are useful and perfect for my preschool and elementary-aged kids, they’re simply pencils and erasers stuck together and tied with ribbon, then I added a spooky spider ring. These no sugar Halloween alternatives are kind of like Halloween pencil toppers but situated in the middle of the two pencils.
I was able to find Halloween pencils and erasers & everything else I needed at the dollar store (Dollar Tree, y’all). With multi-packs of pencils and Halloween erasers available, I spent less than $5 for my daughter’s preschool class. Here’s to a little candy-free Halloween fun!
DIY Halloween Pencils and Erasers Favors
Makes 12 favors
- 24 Halloween pencils
- 12 Halloween erasers
- 1 roll foam double-sided stick mounting tape
- 12 plastic spider rings
- matching gift ribbon
Step 1: Tie together your Halloween pencils with ribbon
Grab two pencils and tie a piece of ribbon in a knot at the center, tying them together. Make sure to leave a little ribbon hanging on each side so you can curl it later.
Step 2: Add erasers to the center of each pencil favor
Measure and cut a piece of the foam tape to the size of your eraser and stick firmly onto the knot you tied.
Step 3: Add the spider ring
Next, slide your spooky spider ring on one side of the ribbon and tie in a knot again to secure it. Now you’re ready to curl the ends of the ribbon!
Repeat the process for each favor, it took me about 30 minutes to finish them all.
Such fun Halloween favors to make!
