This fun Halloween Treat Idea and Tag is fun for any Halloween Party! Just add a treat into a test tube and and attach these free printable ‘Spooky Sweets’ treat tag!
Hey friends! Today I am sharing a fun Halloween Test Tube Treat Idea and Printable Tag with you guys! I made these fun treats a few years ago for a family Halloween party. But, the post was due for an update!
This fun treat idea would also be perfect for a school class Halloween party! We originally found these orange test tubes in the Target Dollar Spot, but you can find all sorts of options on Amazon — Test Tubes for Treats!
SPOOKY SWEETS HALLOWEEN TAG
To start you’ll need to gather your supplies:
- Plastic Candy Test Tubes
- Printable Treat Tags (download below)
- Distress Ink or Crayon
- Bakers Twine (I used black and white)
- Embellishments (optional)
- A fun treat – I went with mini M&M’s.
You can get the plastic test tubes all over the place – party stores, Amazon, etc. You can also search Gumball tubes. I prefer the ones with flat bottoms, but they do make them with rounded bottoms more true to an actual test tube. So, go with whatever look you like the most!
FUN HALLOWEEN TREAT
To get started, download the Spooky Sweets treat tag at the bottom of this post. I highly suggest printing them on cardstock using your home printer.
Once printed, cut them out. I then I like to take my distressing ink and ink the edges of each tag. It helps give a more worn and finished look. I used my vintage (brown) distressing ink. If you don’t have distressing ink, a crayon is another easy way you could accomplish this look.
Once your tags are cut, then use a small mini hole puncher or the end of some scissors to create a small hole in the top of the printable tag to thread the bakers twice through. Then go ahead and thread your bakers twine!
Next, take your candy and fill your test tubes. Again, I just used mini M&M’s, but you can really fill them with whatever candy you’d like! Then go ahead and cork the top!
Lastly, tie your bakers twine around the top of your test tube and add any embellishments you want. You don’t have to use embellishments, if you want to keep the cost down. But, I thought it added a fun little look. I added them to some of the the test tubes.
The embellishments I used had a small sticky circle on the back that helped secure the bakers twine in place when I pushed it onto the top. But, if you don’t use any embellishments and feel like it needs a little securing, don’t hesitate to use your hot glue gun to just dab a tiny dot of hot glue on the knot. That way it will secure the twine to the test tube and there will be no movement.
The treats still look really cute, even without embellishments! So, don’t stress if you don’t want to find any!
