Happy Halloween!! October seems to fly by, and not just in a witchy kind of way. But, when Halloween finally hits, it’s a BIG deal in our house. It’s not just the trick-or-treating, every year we host a family Halloween party. The kids dress up, we eat delicious food, and we always make a new Halloween craft that decorates the party.
Instead of making more decor, this year we made something a little different. After years of throwing Halloween parties, we have a lot of festive decor. (You can read about our other Halloween crafts from our Trick-Or-Treat Halloween Spiders to Glam Halloween Pumpkins, and other Spooktacular Halloween Crafts for the Family.)
This year we gave each person a little Halloween loot – a delicious chocolate bar wrapped in a jack-o’-lantern chocolate bar wrapper. It’s sweet, festive, and filled with chocolate, which are some of my favorite things. And the wrapper is closed with a festive Halloween sticker.
How to Make Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrappers
Making your own Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrapper is easier than ever because you can download your own template. You can use it as a stencil or print it right on the orange paper, like we did to make a sweet little gift.
Step 1: Download the Template
You can download the template for the Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrapper for free. Simply click here to download yours.
When you download the template, you will receive an 8.5×11 inch image. You can print it at home on white printer paper or orange construction paper/card stock.
Step 2: Print and Cut Out
Now that you have your Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrapper, you can print it out. Our orange paper was a little wide for our printer, so I needed to trim the side of it, only by about half an inch or less in order to use it in our printer.
I simply used a piece of printer paper as a guide and made a line with a pencil. I cut along the line so that my paper was the right sized width to print on.
When you are printing your image, make sure when you are choosing the printing settings. On your computer, in the scale to fit category, select Fill Entire Paper. If you choose to Print Entire Image, the image will be smaller. And depending on the size of your chocolate or candy bar, the wrapper may not be large enough.
Before you start printing on orange paper, or whatever paper you choose to print on. I recommend first printing it on regular printer paper, this way you can make sure that you are choosing all the correct printing settings. Then you can cut the template to make sure it fits your chocolate or candy bar.
I noticed that using different printing settings can really make a difference in how the image prints. If you want the image to print smaller, you can also choose to scale the image. Just make sure that whatever printing settings work best for you, make sure to note what worked. You can take a screenshot of the settings before printing or simply write it down.
Once you know that the settings work perfectly for you, print the template on orange paper and cut it out. You’ll want to cut along the thick black outline.
Step 3: Fold and Tape
Before you start folding, line up the chocolate or candy bar with the template. You want the top of the bar to line up with or be just below the straight line under the Jack-o’-lantern’s smiling face.
There should be extra paper under the chocolate or candy bar and on either side. First, fold up the bottom, rounded edge. Make sure to hold the bar in place, while you are folding. You don’t want to push up the bar. You can add a little glue dot or rolled up clear tape under the folded paper bottom piece.
Next, fold over the left side, the one that doesn’t have the Halloween message. Add a little glue dot or clear tape under that side. Then, fold over the right side. You want the Happy Halloween message to be the first part that’s opened.
Step 4: Seal with a Sticker
This step is optional. If the paper completely covers your chocolate or candy bar, you don’t need to add a sticker to the bottom. But, if you are giving a large treat and there is a little extra space, you can use a Halloween sticker to cover the hole. Or you can use the sticker to add a little more Halloween fun.
My kids loved the stickers and chose their favorites to add to the Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrappers. We found these Halloween stickers at our local dollar store. But, it’s very easy to find Halloween stickers this time of year. Below you can see some of the different stickers we used on our Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrappers.
If you are making more Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrappers, repeat steps 2 to 4 for each new one that print.
How Can You Get the Template

Jack-o’-lantern Chocolate Bar Wrappers would look adorable in pink, green, yellow, white, or any of your favorite Halloween colors. The options are endless.
And if you want to make your own Jack-o’-lantern face. You can print it on printer paper and use that as a stencil. Simply trace the template outline on another piece of paper. Follow the line and cut it out. Then add your own Jack-o’-lantern face.
You can make a smiling face, a scary face, or something completely silly. It’s amazing to see all of the different pumpkin faces that people are making these days. But my favorite is the sweet smiling ones. It reminds me of the pumpkins we made when I was a kid.
