Now we are into October I got to thinking about some Halloween treats to leave at the front doors of our neighbors…so I decided to come up with a way to hang treats onto front door knobs & handles and this is what I created…

This cute treat holder is sized to hang on a door knob and has a pouch in the front that is perfect for filling with Halloween Boo’s or Secret Sneeky Santa treats for friends, kids, neighbors & co-workers – they are fun and are very affordable to make and fill…each is made from just one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock plus embellishments…read on for details and a link to my free printable tutorial below along with my Spooky Blog Candy…

My Door Hanger base is made using a sheet of Elegant Eggplant cardstock onto which I have layered Basic Black…I textured the front piece using the fabulous Spider Web Embossing Folder that you can find on pg 6 of the Holiday Mini Catalog – I love embossing folders because they make it so easy to give a textured look to your projects and they never run out, like papers do…once you have them, you can use them forever!

I used the gorgeous Raven Lace Trim that is featured on pg 8 of the Holiday Mini to wrap around it and tied a bow onto my sentiment tag in the front.  My Bats were made using the Bitty Bat Punch (pg 200) and I punched them out of paper from the Wicked Fun Specialty pack (pg 172) and Basic Gray cardstock…

My sentiment stamp is taken from the set Wicked Cool (pg 23)  which also features the coolest web, witch legs & hat stamps in it…other punches that I used are all on pgs 200-203 and include the Scallop Edge, Scallop Oval, Large Oval and 1 3/4″ Circle punches…I also used my Circle Scissors Plus & Glass Mat (pg 199) to cut my hole to hang my treat holder onto a door knob.

And then you get to fill it…I put 4 Test Tubes in this one that I plan to fill with lip balms, M&Ms & Jelly Beans and it gives a really, neat & cute look…

Or you can fill it with cookies, Hershey bars or similar like this one…

Cute, eh?  The Test Tubes I use are fabulous, especially for kids – they are plastic, have flat bottoms and screw-tops – they come in two sizes and the ones I used here are the small ones which are 4″ tall – you can find more details about them by clicking HERE

    Your door knob treat holders are so cute! I doubt if I would be leaving many on door knobs on our block as we have a college one block down from us. But, wouldn’t that make a great surprise for your mailperson or paperperson? This would be fun at Christmas time but here in Iowa whatever you put in them would probably freeze….gotta think a bit on that! Thanks for the idea and tutorial! Hey, about making them for a nursing home or assisted living center – especially if you could get a scout troop or a group of kids involved?
