DIY Project: Halloween Favor Bottles

Welcome to the first official (publicized) post of Somewhere Splendid! It’s nearly Halloween, and I’m excited to be having my first trick-or-treaters at our house this year! We won’t be throwing a party (at least not this year) but I thought I’d start off with a cute little printable that you can share with your guests. Enjoy!


  • white printer paper
  • this PDF printable
  • double stick tape
  • two ounce corked bottles (ours available here from SKS Bottle)
  • bulk Pop Rocks candy or loose rock candy crystals
  • kitchen funnel


Print labels onto white paper and trim to size. Place strips of double stick tape down the left and right sides, then add two strips in an “X” shape through the middle. (Alternatively, you can print the PDF on a full sheet label paper and cut to size.) Apply label to the bottle and roll back and forth to affix firmly.

Using a kitchen funnel, fill each jar with Pop Rocks or loose rock candy crystals. We recommend one flavor for each of the three label styles provided on the document.

* SKS Bottle provided samples for this DIY project, but I was not otherwise compensated for this post.

  2. Hey! Came from the inspired bride. I love what you’ve blogged so far and can’t wait to read what you’ve got coming up. Oh and these bottles are cool! Thanks for sharing!

  3. How much Pop Rocks do you use? I see that the regular packs are only 0.33 ounces…do you really need 6 regular packets to fill just one of the bottles?

  4. Hi Rachel – it took me about 2 to fill each, but I may have had a different size from you. I would recommend buying in bulk. I’ve seen them available out of the packets (just the powder) online but if you can’t find that, I suggest using loose rock candy crystals instead.
