Spiderwebs are one of our go-to designs when making Halloween decorations. Remember our creepy spiderweb lanterns that we made last year? Well our graphic designer Lindsay has done it again with these papercut spiderweb treat bags!

Because spiderwebs are naturally intricate, we recommend using a cutting machine for this paper craft project. However, you are always welcome to use our printable template and cut this by hand with detail scissors or a craft knife.

Creepy Crawly Treats

Depending on where you live, trick-or-treating may look a bit different this year. But that doesn’t mean you can’t give out fun and festive treats to your friends and neighbors — or have a little Halloween party at home with your family! To make your spiderweb treat bags even more special, you can personalize each one you are gifting with the person’s favorite candy or chocolate, and maybe slip another craft inside that you think they would like.

When you’re ready to craft your spiderweb treat bags, all you will need is some cardstock paper and vellum paper. We chose to make our treat bags in white and the spider in both black and purple. This is another area for you to get creative, and we can’t wait to see your Halloween creations!

Cut out the spiderweb treat bags according to the template, then fold along all the score lines. Add adhesive to the long side tab, then tuck and secure in place. Close up the bottom pieces and add adhesive to secure closed. Pack up a few goodies, then tuck in the top flap to close — don’t forget to add your spider!
