Plus many of the favors are easy enough to get the kids involved in making them too!

Apple Juice Favor (via A Subtle Revelry) Go rustic with this simple apple juice tied with linen. If the wooden boxes are too hard to come by, I think they would look just a good without, with a decorative halloween ribbon on the juice itself.

Printable Candy Wrappers (via Handmade Charlotte) A printer, candy and twine is all you need to make this spooky sweet treat.

Peat Cup Buckets (via Uncommon Designs) Love the idea of using inexpensive peat cups as favor baskets. If the fringe paper is too much trouble, black tissue paper would be a great substitute in a pinch.

Scrapbook Paper Goodie Bags (via Lia Griffith) This clever tutorial shows you how to turn scrapbook paper and ribbon into a favor bag.

Burlap Favor Bags (via Crafts Unleashed) If you want to skip the sewing of the burlap fabric altogether, you could purchase already made mini muslin or burlap bags.

Ghost Buckets (via Dollar Store Crafts) All you need are inexpensive buckets, duct tape and tissue paper for this easily assembled favor.

Glitter Slime Monsters (via The 36th Avenue) Make a big batch of this glittery, neon slime and simply place in mason jars. I think the googly eyes alone look super cute and are the easiest way to go!

Halloween Glitter Shapes (via HGTV) Decorate muslin favor bags with this free printable template and dust with glitter to make it sparkle.

Surprise Jack O’ Lantern Box (via No Biggie) Kraft jewelry boxes, some wire and cut out paper pumpkins are all you need for this fun surprise in a box favor.

Mini Mason Jar Favors (via The Country Chic Cottage) A fun idea for the younger child – mini jars can be decorated two ways with either paper lined tops and stickers or through the free printable monster face templates.
