DIY Sweet Cactus Treat Holder – Free Printable

I created this little printable treat holder a while ago to offer in my Etsy shop, but decided to offer it here for free instead. The original was hand painted in watercolors by me.

It’s a sweet little cactus and you can fold its arms to hold some kind of small treat. I put needle felted hearts in mine, but you could also use it for a fun size chocolate or other candy. Or for a child’s party favor, you could put something useful in them, like a couple crayons or colored pencils.

You can download the free printable treat holder below and then follow these simple steps:


1.
Print as many treat holders as you need. (There are two cacti on one page.) A heavy printer paper would work well. You could also use standard printer paper or a cardstock. How sturdy the paper needs to be will depend on what kind of treat you use.

2. Cut them out and draw on eyes and a mouth if you’d like.

3. Carefully tape the back of your treats to the cactus. You could use double-sided tape or fold regular tape backward over itself in a flat loop.

4. Fold the arms over the treats so the cactus is “holding” it and secure with a little tape. You could even go an extra step and write To: and From: on the arms.
