I usually make some little treat pouches for the ghosts and ghouls who visit us on Halloween. Living near a couple of schools we tend to get a fair amount of the little beasts treasures at our door.  This year I've made some very simple pillow boxes with bat wings and spooky cute faces. 

They're quite large so should be adequate for a couple of snack sizes chocolate bars.  I thought they would be quite quick to make, but after taking about 3 hours to make 20 I withhold my opinion on that! 

After the 20 pouches are handed out on the night, we'll be closing the curtains and turning off the lights!

That is so cute - you did well to make 20 of them for the little darlings who knock on your door

You are amazing making wonderful pouches like these for the local kids... you'll certainly be having a big tick on your gatepost for everyone to call at! My lovely man loves halloween... it's all I can manage to stop him going out with any local kids doing trick or treat! He dresses up the house with ghosts around (they scare me silly!), and gets more joy out of all this than the kiddies do! Ah well, he's only 65!
