A coffin-shaped craft box is tailor-made for Halloween. You can decorate it yourself, or top it with our downloadable art on top. (Options include a curious mummy peeking between its bandages, a series of spider webs, or chains holding the coffin shut, and come in color or black and white so you can color in your own.) When the box is ready, fill it with treats or craft supplies and it’s a Halloween coffin craft box favor just right for party guests or trick or treaters. You can put names on them to act as place cards or make fun names like Frank N. Stein, I.M. Dead, or Dr. Acula.

If you’re celebrating Halloween at home, make one for every guest at your Halloween party. When you’re done, you’ll have favors that double as decor—write initials or names on them and they can act as placecards, too. Set one at each place or line them across a table to create a graveyard. You can even add headstones with our Graveyard Decor templates.

As for what goes inside? There are SO many possibilities. Depending on your guest list and mood, you might fill them with:

  • Halloween Candy
  • Day of the Dead skull lollipops
  • Candy bones
  • Stretchy skeleton toys
  • Beads and string for crafting into necklaces, bracelets, or strings for facemasks or glasses
  • Fabric markers, stick-on beads and eye or face masks so kids can embellish their own
  • Crayons or markers for drawing on a paper tablecloth
  • Halloween sticker
  • Halloween temporary tattoos
  • Eyeball- or skull- shaped erasers
  • Clues for a Halloween scavenger hunt
  • A pair of Halloween socks
  • Bamboo cutlery to use at the party
  • Secret messages that need decoded
  • If there’s room, line the coffin with gauze before slipping in the materials. Don’t let anyone know what’s inside. Instead, tell guests they’ll only find out what hides within when they open the casket. If they dare!
