If you read this blog long enough, you soon realize that I absolutely love creating free cut files to share with you guys. From designing them in Adobe Illustrator to seeing pictures of your creations shared on social media, making files that you can use with your favorite cutting machine is one of my favorite projects! That being said, there are times when I just want to use my scissors to cut a few easy shapes out of vinyl and quickly make an adorable gift. These easy Halloween Gift Candy Bottles are the perfect answer to that wish!

Easy Halloween Gift Candy Bottles
- Expressions Vinyl Series 51 Permanent Vinyl (black, white, orange)
- Small Glass Milk Bottles
- SweetWorks Celebrations Sixlets (orange, green)
- Bolts/Glue (optional)
Step 1. This project is so easy that you don’t really even need a tutorial! Essentially, all you’re going to do is draw the bottle faces on the back of your vinyl sheets (I used some scrap pieces!) and apply them in place in the center of the bottles. So easy, right?!
Step 2. Cut a 2″ strip of black vinyl to resemble Frankenstein’s jagged hair and apply in place on the bottle. Add the eyes, mouth, scars, and eyebrows to finish the look!
Step 3. The final touch is adhering the bolts to the side of Frankenstein’s face with a bit of glue. Feel free to use a stronger adhesive if you’re worried about the bolts staying in place.
Step 4. Making the Jack-o-lantern bottle is even easier with only three small vinyl stickers!
Step 5. With the vinyl sticker faces in place, simply fill each bottle with the coordinating color of Sixlets.
Step 6. Add a cute bow to the top and your Halloween Gift Candy Bottles are ready to give to that special ghoul in your life!
How cute and easy were these bottle to make?! Of course, you don’t have to fill them with Sixlets like I did. They would look equally as cute filled with colored sand for a display-only version. Or what about filling them with appropriately colored juice for kids or alcoholic beverages for an adult only treat? So many different ways to enjoy these!
