I bought a foam pumpkin. Cut a hole in the top and filled with fall silk flowers from the dollar store. easy. cheap. and won't die in a few days ;)

Found these creative Halloween candy bar wrappers on Skip To My Lou.

For the mummy... glue a set of googly eyes on the wrapper. Then take white crepe paper and wrap your chocolate bar as many times as you want. I then folded up the edges some to give it that ruffled look.

For the bat... I printed the template out at 60% because I was using smaller chocolate bars. Again, glue a set of googly eyes on. Tape your chocolate bar inside on the middle and use a festive sticker to keep shut.

**TIP** many years ago I learned that you cannot glue googly eyes with a hot glue gun! the black part of the eye melts to the white part and they no longer wiggle. so use tacky glue ;)
