I wanted to make candy free Halloween treat bags for the kids that spend their days with me and when I saw these adorable vegetable & fruit bracelets via a tweet from Chew Chew Mama I knew they were just the thing.

And they were simple to make too. I used three varieties of carrots and sliced them about 1/4″ thick.

Then I cut the slices into triangles. The original post used mini cookie cutters to cut the carrots into flower shapes, which I love. Here I used triangles in different colours because I thought it was more suited for a Halloween treat. And what do you do with all the extra bits of carrot? Consider them chopped and ready to go – for a salad, a stir-fry or steam them for your toddlers lunch.

And then I strung them together using heavy-duty thread and a needle. But what’s a fun, wearable, edible Halloween treat without a fun treat bag?

To make the treat bags I used glassine food bags (4 1/2″ x 7″), purple cardstock (cut to 4 1/2″ x 3″), googly eyes, pop dots (or glue), double-sided tape, scissors.

01. Fold the bag almost in half (after folding my bag was 3 1/2″ tall).  02. Using double-sided tape, attach the cardstock to the top of the folded bag.  03. Using scissors, cut an irregular jagged edge along the bottom of the top folded portion of the bag.  04. Attach the googly eyes using pop dots (or glue).

Place the bracelet in the bag and seal with double-sided tape or a pop dot.
