There are so many things I love about Halloween. The spooky decorations, the parties and of course all of the fun treats. This time of year you will find everything from creepy blood splattered cupcakes to wickedly sweet cauldron treats. Which is why I think you are going to love these Halloween ‘Fang’tastic Donuts. They are an easy and fun treat that you can give to all of the fantastic people you know, like your kids teachers, neighbors or even your office co-workers.
My mom recently tagged me in a Facebook post where another creative blogger had shared her version of Vampire donuts. I loved the idea and decided to make my own version of this fun Halloween treat. Complete with custom treat boxes and free printable Halloween tags.
If you have been following Giggles Galore for a while you know how much we love our teachers, and how I look for any opportunity to shower them with reminders about how much we truly appreciate them. I knew these ‘Fang’tastic Donuts would be the perfect little treat to send to school.
What You Will Need:
- Patterned Scrapbook Paper
- Black Scrapboook Paper
- Clear Transparency Paper
- Glue Dots
- Plastic Halloween Fangs
- Candy Eyes
- Free Printable Halloween Tags
I used my Cricut to create individual Halloween treat boxes for the donuts. The boxes were made using the Artiste cartridge, but you can also find several options in Cricut Design Space. I picked colorful Halloween patterned paper for the box tops and used the black scrapbook paper for the bottom. Once you have cut out all of the pieces it’s time to assemble them. Use glue dots to secure each of the folds in place.
Cut a 4 x 4 piece of the transparency and secure it to the inside of the box top using glue dots.
Once the boxes are assembled put them aside and make your ‘Fang’tastic Donuts. Take a set of the colorful vampire teeth and push them into the hole of the donut. Next, use a small dab of icing and secure the candy eyes.
Place a small square of wax paper down inside the box and place the donut inside. Add the lid to the top of the box and tie it up with twine and one of the free printable Halloween tags.
If you are going to send donuts for breakfast chance are your teacher is going to wish they had a glass of milk. I filled mini milk jugs with milk and attached a paper straw with twine.
My kiddos were so excited to take their ‘Fangtastic Donuts’ to their fantastic teachers! This is one sweet Halloween treat that is sure to make someone’s day extraordinary!
