One of the easiest ways to do this is to create a candy wrapper belt. Kids will absolutely love being able to show off their favorite candy by wearing it around their waist. All the instructions can be found here, and any sized wrapper will work for this.
If belts aren’t really your thing, you can also turn candy wrappers into a really cool zig-zag bracelet. Using this tutorial, you’ll see that starburst wrappers and gum wrappers are the easiest to create this bracelet. The best part about this craft is that once you have the wrappers, no other tools are necessary!
My personal favorite idea is getting a new Halloween decoration. And what better way to decorate for a candy-themed holiday than with candy wrappers? Using these instructions, you can take your favorite candy and turn the wrappers into a really cool Halloween bowl, perfect for holding more candy.
All of the Halloween fun doesn’t have to end just because the candy is gone. Let’s keep all of the Halloween scares away from the environment and repurpose as many candy wrappers as we can.
