No Tricks Just Treats Jar

Alright – it’s official… my FIRST Halloween post of the season!!

YAY – I’m so excited! I’ve been busy working on some fun projects, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Today, I want to share with you my No Tricks Just Treats Jar.

With that in mind, let’s begin with the contents of the jar above. I’m always trying to think of cute things to hand out at Halloween time. Candy is typical and that’s what we usually do, but this next idea is cute, simple and can even be healthy (yes – healthy!!)


– Vending Machine Capsules {purchased online or at party stores}

– Treats or snacks that are color coordinated (orange snacks for the pumpkin capsules, etc.)

– Vinyl or sharpies


Punkinheads Dingbat which can be downloaded HERE

1. Begin by either cutting vinyl or drawing on Pumpkin faces onto your capsules. For the vinyl, I downloaded the dingbat: Punkinheads which can be downloaded HERE. I measured how big I wanted my vinyl face and cut it using my Silhouette.

2. From there you will fill your capsules with goodies.

For the Pumpkins: Cheez-Its, Mini GoldFish, Reeses Pieces, Candy Corn, etc.

For Frankenstein: Mint M&Ms, Green Sixlets or M&Ms (found at the candy store), Pistachios, etc.

For a Ghost: Marshmallows, Yogurt covered Raisins, etc.

3. Add tops and pass out!!

Now, since my kiddos have birthdays around Halloween I thought these would perfect for our Halloween Birthday Party that we do every year. I wanted a cute way to display them and wanted to put them in an inexpensive jar I got from Walmart.

I decided to make some printable tags to add to the jar so that I could give it as a gift too.

I made them in Apple Green, Tangerine and Purple, and I made them in THREE sizes – 2 inch (perfect as tags), 3 inch and 5 inch.

To download them go to the following links:

2 INCH No Tricks Just Treats Tags

3 INCH & 5 INCH No Tricks Just Treats Tags

From there I added them to my jar with some glue dots and added some twine to the top.

You could even fill the jar with any type of goodies, like I did with these Reeses Pieces or even with Candy Corn or other Halloween Goodies to make a perfect Halloween Gift.


What’s not to love?

Hoping this post gets you excited for Halloween…

    Thank you for this cute idea! I just have a question for you…how do you upload the pumpkin faces into your silhouette library? I am not having success doing this. Thanks!

    I love the idea of handing out the vending machine capsules filled with Halloween candy to my trick-or-treaters. I just don’t know how to cut the faces out since I don’t have a Silhouette and honestly I don’t know what that is. Is there another way to cut out the faces without one of those??

    Thanks for the awesome printables! I never thought about using dingbat fonts for vinyl. Thanks for the lightbulb. :)
    Love these treats.
