Pumpkin Treat Bags

These adorable little guys are perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving parties. I took a batch of these to work and they were a hit!


  • Orange tissue paper (you need 2 sheets to make 5 bags)
  • Green painters tape or washi tape
  • Scissors
  • 9 inch cake pan*
  • Pencil
  • 4-5 bags of candy**

Pumpkin Treat Bags

* You can use anything that is at least 9 inches in diameter, like a dinner plate or bowl.** Makes about 40 treat bags depending on the size of the candy. I used mini Reeses’ peanut butter cups, mini Hershey’s bars, Starbursts, Rolos, and mini round pumpkins and eyeballs (for Halloween). You could also use candy corn or pumpkins, Hershey’s Kisses, or any small candy.

Step 1: Lay 2 sheets of tissue paper on a flat surface. Use the pencil to trace around the 9 inch cake pan. I was able to fit 5 circles at a time. Use the scissors to cut out the circles. Repeat until you have the desired number of circles. Remember, you need 2 circles to create 1 pumpkin.

Step 2: Pile 4-5 pieces of candy in the middle of the circle. Bring the 4 edges of the pumpkin together, like you would a square. Gather the remaining edges. Cut a 4 inch long piece of green tape, then cut the tape in half length-wise. Use the tape to create the stem of the pumpkin. I started at the base of the stem then wound the tape around the stem until it reached the top.
