No tricks here, just treats!
With a birthday in October, I never get tired of Halloween themed parties and crafts! I had the idea to put some glitter on a honeycomb ball and next thing you know I had turned the whole honeycomb collection into Halloween characters. Gang’s all here; ghosts, witches, owls and jack-o-lanterns!
Check out the video below to meet my awesome helper for this party and get the breakdown for how I set everything up. I think this video will always be one of my favorites, the ghost winking at the end gets me every time!
I definitely lean toward cute versus spooky when it comes to Halloween, so using paper cutouts to decorate these honeycomb balls was the perfect solution for adding a little extra Halloween flavor to this sweets table.

Halloween is a good excuse to splurge on sugar so you can never go wrong with apothecary jars filled with treats and candy! To hold the mini gift bags I used this haunted house stand. The house was actually a cardboard stand that got a makeover. Pink and white wasn’t in the color scheme for this party so I used black spray paint and Halloween colored washi tape to transform the stand.
Materials needed to recreate the treat stand:
- Treat stand
- Black spray paint
- Halloween colored washi tape
- “Happy Halloween” topper and banner (I used my Cricut for these)
- Mini black gift bags
Materials needed to recreate the Honeycomb characters:
- Witches honeycomb balls
- Orange & Purple witch hats
- Black glitter honeycomb balls
- Halloween themed glitter
- Ghost honeycomb balls
- Jack O Lantern honeycomb balls
- Owl honeycomb balls
- Purple honeycomb balls
- Cardstock for various cutouts
- Scissors or cutting machine (I used my Cricut Explore)
The honeycomb balls are great for decorations but can also double as a kid’s activity. With paper cutouts and a little glue, kids can decorate and make their own characters. My niece really liked the owls which I made from this miniature honeycomb garland. I used free clipart from google as a guide for each of the character’s face cutouts!
The materials listed above look like a lot but since everything is paper, not only is it affordable, but also easy to put together! This was totally a last minute setup for a Halloween/birthday party and it’s still one of my favorites! I don’t have any detailed how-to tutorials so feel free to ask questions if you need help recreating this setup.
