{seasonal style} Non-Candy Halloween Treat with Free Printable

Monday, October 27, 2014

Beckett is almost three, and he is just the sweetest kid! He is always looking for gifts to give to other people and recently, while shopping the dollar section of Target he found some Halloween pencils and spider rings that he begged to buy for the kids in his preschool class. How could I say no to that? So I decided to make up a little card for Beckett to give his friends.

The cards read "I'm Glad You're In My Web of Friends." They turned out so cute that I thought I'd also offer it as a free printable for you to download if you are looking for a quick, last minute non-candy treat for your kids to share with their friends. Click here to download the printable cards!

The download has four cards on one page. Simply print out as many as you need and cut them out along the black boarder. You'll notice the two black dots on each card - those are where you'll punch the holes to slide the pencils through, but we'll get to that in a minute.

I didn't print Beckett's name on the cards since I decided to make it a printable. Instead, I used a Sharpie to write his name in below "Happy Halloween."

The black dots in the upper right and lower left corners of the cards indicate where you should punch holes to slide the pencils through. 

A single hole punch is not big enough for a pencil, so I instead punched a group of five overlapping holes {in a sort of flower pattern}.

Now you are ready to insert your pencils and spider rings.

Insert a pencil through the upper right hole.

Then slide a spider ring onto the pencil.

And slide the other end of the pencil through the hole in the bottom left corner of the card.

Inserting the pencils this way will prevent the spider ring from falling off, but I wanted the spiders to stay right in the middle so that they look like they are on the spider web, so I used a small piece of clear Scotch tape to hold the ring in place.

I spun the ring around so that the spider was against the paper and used a small piece of clear tape to affix the ring to the pencil.

Then I rotated the pencil until the spider ring was back on top.

If you are looking for a last minute gift for your kid's classmates or as the favors for a Halloween party, these are a quick and easy option! I was able to print, cut and assemble these cute treat cards for every kid in Beckett's preschool class in a just about 20 minutes time. 

Beckett is so excited to give these to his friends, and I think the other parents will appreciate the non-candy treat {I know I would}!
