I’m always on the lookout for Halloween crafts and decor ideas that are cute, not scary. These toilet paper roll Halloween candy holders fit into that category perfectly, and are easy to make and inexpensive to boot! Kids LOVE punching through the tissue paper to get to the goodies inside!

Obviously, the focus of any good Halloween candy holder is the candy! While in Walmart the other day, the kids and I spent nearly 15 minutes perusing all of the varieties of bags of Halloween candy. We decided we wanted chocolate candy, and it took another 10 minutes or so to decide on which one 🙂 is always the place we go when we are looking for a great deal, and this was no exception; we ended up with a HUGE bag of chocolate candies (almost 100 pieces) for under $10. Looking for a fun way to package up the treats, I gathered up some toilet paper rolls, scrapbook paper, tissue paper, bakers twine, Mod Podge and embellishments

I found my toilet paper tubes at a craft store, but you can easily save a few dollars by saving them (you can even use a paper towel roll tube cut in half).

Begin by taking your tissue paper, and cutting it into circles, large enough to generously cover opening in your tube (you’ll need two per roll).

Using your Mod Podge and a foam brush, add a dab of Mod Podge to the top of each tube, going all the way around the tube. Place a tissue paper circle over the top of your opening, and press down on all sides so that it covers the entire opening.

Flip your tubes over, and fill with candy. When you’re done, repeat the above process to add another piece of tissue paper to the other end of the tube, securing the candy inside.

Now’s the fun part! You can decorate these tissue paper roll Halloween candy holders any way you’d like. I used scrapbook paper (which I cut to fit and Mod Podged onto each roll), bakers twine, and easy sticker embellishments, much of which you can easily find at…
