Halloween is creeping up on us and we have lots of spooky DIY projects coming your way. Today’s project is a fun DIY Halloween Treat Carton made from paper, perfect for filling with ghoulish snacks for your little trick-or-treaters. We are all about the haunted house this Halloween and so our DIY treat box is made to look like a miniature spooky home complete with windows, picket fence and witches cat – it’s wickedly good!
We have included the SVG file for those of you who are using a cutting machine to make this project and another version that is fully illustrated for you to download and print using the PDF file. This version is easy to cut and fold by hand. Once your houses are cut punch a few holes in the top and add a length of ribbon or twine and you’re DIY Halloween Treat Carton is ready to fill!
If you’re on the hunt for more Halloween inspiration take a look at our Pumpkin Bats, Halloween Party Invitation, Halloween Pumpkin Diorama or Paper Haunted Village. Enjoy! ~ Lia

My file download as a macosx file I need the android version. Help please
Hi Mary! We don’t create files for Apple or Android — they should work on any device, though we do recommend downloading them to your desktop. Can you email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the file you are seeing? We will be able to better assist you from there.
Hello again! We looked into this a bit more and have found out that some androids are not able to unzip .zip files, so this may be what is happening to you. If this is the case, you would have to download a separate app that allows you to unzip .zip files. Otherwise, we recommend downloading them to your desktop computer. Hope this helps!
I’ve just downloaded the svg into Design Space and all of the lines are solid black for cutting and in one group so I can’t tell my machine to cut the outer edge and just score the inner lines so I can fold the boxes.
Appreciate any advice.
Hi Samantha, you just need to change that layer to SCORE instead of CUT, and the lines will turn into gray dash lines so you’ll see exactly what will score.
[…] Halloween Treat Carton […]
I just printed 31 of these and settling in tonight to cut and assemble the boxes. I’m attaching little circle numbers and these are our Countdown to Halloween fun boxes. My daughters are 19, 18, 10… so this is really for the 10 year old as her first Halloween of being a sort of “only child.”
I’m putting in cards with things to do (i.e. make cookies, visit pumpkin patch, draw a haunted house contest…” and just in case the sisters come by, they can participate too. Also filling with candy, maybe a day or two of nail polish, pretty hair stuff, etc.
Now off to finish these boxes, so I can find another great Halloween craft!!!!
Thanks for sharing such a great idea for these! Your girls are sure to remember such a fun countdown 🙂
Thanks for all.. Just join the site
Adorable as always! Thank you!
Happy you like it. 😉
Hi Lia: These are so cute; thanks so much for sharing them! When I download the svg cut file into Silhouette, the house is one solid black piece – the window cutouts with the spider web and the cat are missing. Do you have any tips on how I can fix that? Thanks!
I don’t work on Silhouette so I can’t speak to that machine. Are you using the SVG or the PDF file?
Thanks for the reply! I’m using the svg file, which is how I always import your files into Silhouette. Usually they come out perfectly, but this time the interior parts (windows) are missing. Oh well. Maybe I’ll just have to hand cut the windows. Thanks!
Give me a minute to check out the file. It is suppose to be a compound path and I am guessing that part was missed.
Ok, I just double checked the file again and it looks like it was set up correctly. . . for the Cricut anyway. I am guessing the Silhouette software just isn’t seeing it, but also it may be how you are uploading it. See if you can find a video tutorial on SVG upload into Silhouette. There may be one little button or something small that can fix it. Just a guess.
Thanks so much for checking; I really appreciate it! Since the problem is on my end, I’ll keep playing around with it and see what I can figure out. 🙂
I had the same problem, but find out that afer separating each design there was another design on the main box part which covered windows. Maybe it is score line to use with cricut? However Now it works 😉
Love everything! I’m a new member & look forward to making these Halloween treat boxes!?
Yay! Welcome and we have more goodies coming.
another great halloween project ….
You are so welcome!!
holy cow are these awesome or what?!? how much is the rent?i wanna move in! :>D!
Haha! The rent is paid in Halloween candy!
So cute! I’m wondering what type of paper you used…
We used a card stock for both. The machine cut one was made from a glitter paper you can find at Michaels and the other just a white card stock printer paper.
Love these! However, are there any download links? I don’t see any 🙂
Thank you and yes they are there now:-)
I do not see a link for this. I joined a few days ago, so excited!
A small hiccup on our end:-) The files are up, thank for letting me know! And welcome and thank you for your support!
You are so welcome!!
They are adorable!!!
