Halloween Treat Jar with Ghost and Pumpkin Peeps


Last year I saw the cutest little jar filled with Marshmallow Ghosts and I knew I wanted to make something similar to give this year as a hostess gift to my niece.  We go to her house  for the kids to Trick or Treat together every year and we have dinner and games….such a fun time, so I made this little jar to give to her ~it was so easy and I love the results.

Materials needed:

Jar or other airtight container ~ the peeps get hard if exposed to air

Marshmallow Ghost Peeps and Pumpkin Peeps

Candy Corn

Candy corn pumpkins {optional}

Tags, ribbon, washi tape {optional}

1.  Add a ’round’ of Marshmallow Ghost Peeps to the bottom sides of your jar~ keep these in place by adding some candy corn just to the top of the ghosts.

2.  Next, add a round of Marshmallow Pumpkin Peeps ~ add more candy corn and then top off with some candy pumpkins.


3.  Add your lid ~ I cut a decorative circle from some scrapbook paper to add to the lid.  I also made a little tag and added some washi tape to the rim.

That’s it!
