DIY Halloween Candy Bar Wraps
Costumes are on just for people and pets! Costumes are a great idea for these DIY Halloween Candy Bar Wraps too. This is such a simple and fun craft for kids to do. It allows them the opportunity to be creative and express their craziest costume ideas. I am going to share with you three ideas that I completed using Oly*Fun from Fairfield World AND also going to share a sketch that has SIX ideas. The additional three would be simple to create using the exact same steps. Let’s get started.
Supplies Needed for DIY Halloween Candy Bar Wraps
- Oly*Fun from Fairfield World
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks (Xyron)

Directions for DIY Halloween Candy Bar Wraps
Cut the Oly*Fun to fit around the candy bar one complete time.
Hot glue the Oly*Fun to the candy bar on the back side.
Add felt accessories and google eyes to the front of the candy bar.
Add any other fun details you might like to add. A stem with a leaf is fun for the pumpkin.
Draw stitches with marker on your Frankenstein.
Making a Mummy Wrapped Candy Bar
To make a mummy wrapped candy bar, cut the white Oly*Fun into a strip. Hot glue the end to the back of the candy bar and wrap it around, applying hot glue when necessary to hold it in place.
Add google eyes using the hot glue.

Best Ways to Use Free Printables
You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right? There are so many great ways to use free printables. Here are some of my favorites.
- Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
- Batch some up to make an activity book. This is great for a road trip!
- Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
- Add them to goody bags. By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
- Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
- Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
- Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.

These are my favorite tools and art supplies to use with free printables and why I love them too.

- Scissors – Lots of printables can be cut up to create decorations and cards and things like that.
- Markers and Crayons – All thing ooly work the best for me. I LOVE all of their markers, pencils and crayons.
