Fall festivities call for creative treats!


From potlucks to house parties, a crafty snack bar can be quite the crowd pleaser. Go above and beyond the usual fondue and candies with this creative caramel apple bar. Your guests will be delighted to create their custom candied apples with toppings catered to their favorite fall flavors!

The best part? You can easily construct this show-stopping sweets station with 4 simple Cricut projects. Our helpful how-tos for fall-themed garland, labels, and table décor will have you prepped for your next candy-coated celebration.

Caramel apple topping tags

Crafting clear, legible labels is vital for a successful party snack bar. We love how easy it is to create a homestyle and handwritten look with Design Space fonts. Cut these topping labels and tags from linen, vinyl, and cardstock, then tie them to glass treat containers for a farmhouse chic look.

Glittery fall garland

A fall foliage centerpiece adds height and dimension to our homemade caramel apple bar. Arrange branches in a vase, bucket, or another container of choice, then dress with Cricut-crafted garland. This project makes 3 garland strands– one of light craft circles, another of gold circles, and a third of 35 white leaves. All work harmoniously for a gorgeous, woodsy arrangement reminiscent of the season.

Special touches

Adding small surprises to your apple bar is a great way to fill the table and enhance its overall look. These glittery chevron and polka dot cardstock pumpkins complement the garland perfectly. Plus, pumpkin-related projects are always trendy for fall, making this a fun take on classic seasonal décor.

Fall celebration banner

A handmade fabric banner is perfect for tying a table space together. Our caramel apple bar celebrate banner adds a bit of bling to fall neutrals, making it a wonderful statement piece. Use your favorite Cricut cutting machine to cut cream fabric to size, then apply our gold Glitter Iron-On materials for a shining seasonal message.
