Halloween is quickly approaching. I can’t believe how much I have to do in a short time span. The boys costumes are going to be easy to make- it’s just a matter of sitting down and actually doing it. Kids receive so many candy at Halloween (I couldn’t believe how much until I had kids of my own!), so sometimes it’s nice to be that mom who gives non-candy Halloween goodies. I’ve ran across several great Halloween candy alternative lists, but not maybe that feature things that crafters can DIY themselves. So whether you need a candy alternative or a little gift holder to put the goodie in, here are 15 DIY Halloween Candy Alternatives for the DIY enthusiast!

Spider Soap from Milk and Cuddles

Halloween Hair Bows from Pitter and Glink- Bethany made these hair bows as an accent to a bag, but they are cute to gift all on their own!
