One of my favorite parts about Halloween time is thinking up fun, DIY ways to enjoy the sweet treats of the season.

DIY Halloween Candy Balloon Piñatas

My house is full of creatives so when it’s time for us to celebrate a spooky holiday like Halloween, there is no standard issue candy bowl happening under this roof. Let’s not forget how much my boys are into ghouls and monsters year-round.

These ghost and one-eyed green monster treat balloons with Halloween candy are simple and fun for the whole family to make.

Cut 2-inch strips of tissue paper (long side so that they are long strips), then fold over several times. Cut thin strips, unfold, add double-stick tape and wrap around the balloon tie to make the “hair”.

Using a Sharpie marker, draw on the faces! There is no right or wrong way to do this, so have fun with it!

I love having these spooky, balloon treats around the house for a couple of weeks leading up to Halloween. The kids in the neighborhood love to grab one when they come by to trick-or-treat too!
