I'm not always a good planner, and Halloween is one of those holidays that just kind of sneaks up on me. This year, I made some fun, gorgeous and glam gifts for friends that is a perfect last minute Halloween craft- these DIY Halloween Treat Boxes and Glitter Masks are a gift anyone would love to receive on Halloween!

Grab some store bought cookies or a cupcake- or fill the boxes up with Halloween Bark, 4 Ingredient Blondies, or Pumpkin Spice Doughnut Holes, and add these lovely decorations to the treat box to give a truly unforgettable gift- that comes with it's own little impromptu costume! This is perfect for teachers, coworkers, or friends who want to have a festive little surprise but might not dress up at work.
And this project is so easy- just a few minutes hands on time, and about an hour of drying time. Can't get better than that!

First off, we need to glitter up the masks and sticks.
Lay out a large piece of wax paper, freezer paper, or parchment paper. You could also use a trash bag- this is just to reduce cleanup time.
Generously coat wood stick and mask in mod podge.
Apply glitter by shaking all over. Give each item a gentile shake to help glitter adhere and make sure there are no sparsely glittered areas. Add more glitter if needed.
Let dry 1 hour or even overnight.
Shake piece to remove excess unglued glitter.
Hot glue stick to the back of the mask and let cool, about 10 minutes.
Tie foldover elastic onto the sticks.
Assemble treat box, fill with halloween bark, spider cupcakes, pumpkin spice doughnut holes, candy or another festive treat.
Close box with glitter tape, wrap around box in diagonal lines.
Place mask on top of box, and tie glitter elastic at the bottom of the box to secure it on top.
How fun are these? When your recipient has enjoyed their treat, they will have a gorgeous impromptu mask for Halloween. It's a great way to celebrate!
