Pumpkin treat favors

I made this last minute pumpkin treat favor for the kids at our Thanksgiving.    I thought it would add a little fun for the kids, get them over the hump until Christmas!  These were so easy and I made a few in no time.    I got all the treats inside in the dollar section of Target, aka, the best section ever.   

Supplies:
Orange tissue paper
goodies/treats 
tape
brown cardstock
1. Put the goodies in the middle of tissue paper.  I used 2 sheets per pumpkin.
2. Gather it up and secure it with tape.
3. Cut a strip of brown paper.  (brown paper bag would be good to use too)
4. Cut off the tissue above the tape, and wrap the stump with the brown paper. I used tape to secure it.
These are made to be ripped open, so they don't have to be perfect! 

There you have a pumpkin, you can add a name or leave it as is.  
I tied green yarn I had around it and made a little name tag. 


I think the kiddos will like getting a little extra something this year, and have fun ripping them open to see what's inside! 

If you don't already have too much to do before Thursday give them a try! :)
