Halloween Candy Containers

Free printable for these cute little containers for Halloween treats.  Pumpkin faces that are printed on orange paper for Halloween Candy Containers at

Easy and inexpensive candy containers for a Halloween Party or for your neighborhood Trick-or-Treaters.

To make these Halloween Candy Containers, just select the free printable template for pumpkin faces. Nine pumpkin faces print per page. Be sure to use orange printer paper, or orange construction paper if it is the correct paper size for your printer.

For this example, I used two different sized containers – both from the Dollar Tree. The smaller clear containers are multipurpose Mini Cups (50/$1.00). The containers with the white lids are 10 for $1.00. If your dollar tree doesn’t carry these containers, it is possible to get them at Super Walmart.

  1. Select the Pumpkin Face Template and print on orange printer paper. Print as many as you need.
  2. Cut out each pumpkin face along the circle. Note: If you are using the multi-purpose Mini Cups cut inside the line for a smaller circle. Test the size of one before cutting them all out.
  3. Put glue on the container lid and press one circle to each lid.
  4. Fill the containers with candies.
